  1. 1. The light from the sun is very powerful and emits ultraviolet radiation which harms parts of our our eyes the Cornea and the Retina, which can lead to blindness.
    2. The sun is neither a hero or villain, we can not live without it and as long as we are sensible and take precautions it will not harm us, but if we do silly things like look directly at it this will cause harm to our eyes. The suns light and rays are a source of life to plants, animals and us. But sometimes where it gets to hot and dry this can cause droughts and wildfires.

    We should not look at the sun because it can damage you eye sight, as the sun gives out powerful radiation.

    So is the sun an hero or villain?

    The sun is an villain because it can cause permanent damage to your eyes, and also damages your skin.

    Silver challenge (I’m doing this in my homework book)

    – To much sun exposure can really damage your eye sight, and can affect you in later on in life. Such as losing you eye sight, or blurred vision.
    – To much sun exposure can really damage your skin and make you look a lot older then you are.
    – The sun emits high level of UVA ray, which damages the earth ozone layer.
    – The sun emits dangerous level of UVB (Ultraviolet) which damages all living cells and can cause illness like cancer or skin melanin.
    – To much sun light can damage the immune system, damage white blood cells that protect your body.

  5. The light radiates light to the earth, and part of that light consists of invisible UV rays. When these rays reach the skin, they cause tanning, burning, and other skin damage.
    UV rays cause skin aging and wrinkling and contribute to skin cancer, such as melanoma (The most dangerous form of skin cancer.)

    The Sun I believe is a Hero, without the Sun there would be total darkness however we must protect of ourselves from the UV rays.
