Q. 1: How is it that star seldom finds another star near it?
Ans: A star seldom finds another star near it because there is a distance of millions of miles between the two stars. Moreover, space is immensely vast and each star is bound to travel in its own orbit.
Q. 2: What happened when, according to Sir James Jeans, a wandering star, wandering through space came near the sun?
Ans: When a wandering star came near the sun, it raised the tides on the surface of the sun. These tides formed a high mountain on the surface of the sun that we can hardly imagine.
Q. 3: What happened when the wandering star came nearer and nearer?
Ans: When the wandering star came nearer and nearer the sun, the mountain on the surface of the sun rose higher and higher and was, finally, torn into pieces.
Q. 4: What are planets and how did they come into existence?
Ans: The planets are the broken parts of the sun. They came into existence due to tidal pull caused by some stars on the surface of the sun.
Q. 5: Why is there no life on the stars?
