How about 94 of them, all emitting light together

"Open your eyes further," Johannes Kepler would say to the child if he was alive today. "Combine in your mind not only the light spectra of just four or five atomic elements. How about 94 of them, all emitting light together, each with its own array of spectra. Wouldn't their combination be sufficient to produce the sunlight that we see?

The girl would nod in agreement. "In this case, all of the atomic elements would have to be energized together, right at the surface of the Sun. But why would they be there? Wouldn't they all fall into the Sun and vanish from sight?"

"They would be there, all of them together, if they were dynamically created there, right at the surface of the Sun," Kepler would answer. "All atoms in the universe are assemblies of electrons and protons. It takes a lot of energy to combine them into atoms. But in space they exist in unbound form. In this form they are termed plasma. Also, they all have an electric charge. In an atom the charges are balanced, and thereby neutralized. In space, the charges are dynamically mixed. Your teacher may have told you about that.
