  3. What medical technologies (e.g. PET) rely on the physics of elementary particles?
    What are the benefits of noninvasive procedures such as PET?
  4. How is astronomy the oldest science?
  5. How does the energy produced at the core of the Sun reach the photosphere?
  6. Why won’t the Sun become a supernova or black hole?
