An interesting equation derived from Classical General Relativity:

Solar evaporation time:

[tex]\boxed{t_{ev} = \frac{ m_{\odot} c^2}{P_{\odot}}}[/tex]

[tex]m_{\odot} = 1.98892 \cdot 10^{30} \; \text{kg}[/tex] - Solar mass

[tex]P_{\odot} = 3.846 \cdot 10^{26} \; \text{W}[/tex] - Solar Luminosity

[tex]\boxed{t_{ev} = 1.473 \cdot 10^{13} \; \text{y}}[/tex]

Understanding a thermodynamic equation similar to this should provide an appreciation for how extraordinarily dynamic and stable our nearest star Sol really is.
