Ice inside the sun

  1. Nov 3, 2012 #1
    i understand that this may seem like a impossible theory but is it possible that ice could form inside a sun, i understand that the core of a sun is extremly hot but due to the incredible pressures invovled could hydrogen or another gas be compressed so much that it could form ice?

    At that high temperatures there are no compounds, they decompose at several thousands degrees to the elements. So - assuming by ice you mean solidified water - there is no water to begin with.

    That would be known as, "A snowball's chance in hell".
