Can the sun be turned into a black hole?
it is possible but the chances are extremely unlikely. It is far too small. Most likely it will expand into a Red Giant as it dies, in about 4 thousand million years' time.

No. The Sun does does not have enough mass to explode and thus turn into a black hole. Our Sun will end it's life by turning into a red giant, swallowing the Earth and then ev…entually fading into a white dwarf.
No. The Sun will end it's life as a white dwarf. The Sun does not have enough mass to become a black hole.
No. Only the most massive stars several times that of the sun become black holes.
yes as long as the are big enough sun is not big enough
Our Sun cannot, we believe, turn into a black hole. The Sun has too little mass to undergo the supernova explosion that would crush the core of the star into a black hole. …However, sometime "soon" (and in astronomy, "soon" could be anywhere within the next ten thousand years) we expect the red giant star Betegeuse to die just that way; a supernova explosion that will light up our sky like a second full moon, that will crush the core of the star into a black hole.
Simply put, it isn't big enough. A star must have a certain mass to become a black hole after its "death", and the Sun doesn't have enough. Our "Sun" is not big enough, onl…y stars that are a lot bigger will explode and become a black hole.
The sun does not have enough mass to form a black hole. Only stars25 times the mass of the sun or more can form black holes.
It should be stated at the outset that according to our present understanding of physics, this cannot happen. The smallest that a body can be in order to collapse into a black… hole of its own mass is about half again as much as the mass of the Sun. (In practice, it's believed that even this would not be enough, since a star would lose a significant fraction of its mass in the process; the smallest star that can collapse into a black hole is generally thought to be about 2.5 - 3 times the mass of the sun). However, if in defiance of all known physics this somehow happened... despite what you might think, the Earth would NOT get sucked in to the black hole. In fact, the impact of the black holification of the Sun on the orbits of the planets would be quite small. However, since there would no longer be light and heat coming from the Sun, all of the planets, including Earth, would become very dark and very cold.
No, the sun is too small. For a star to turn into a black hole, the star needs to measure 25or more solar masses. The sun weighs in at 1 solar mass. Therefore,a star needs t…o be 25 times the mass of the sun to turn into ablack hole.
First of all, let's look at the basics first. A black hole is made from supernovas of stars(death) The sun is big enough to make a black hole since it is one of the biggest st…ars in space. Now if the sun dies in a supernova (not going to happen) in a bout 2 to 10 billion years later the star's remains will group up and eventually make a black hole. The sun won't die in a supernova but it will burn out all of its fuel thus not able to hold its own gravitational pull
The Sun will never turn into a black hole. Believe it, or not, our local star (named 'Sol') is only a medium-sized star. It's far too small to ever become a black hole. A very… long time from now (billions of years), it will shed most of its mass in a supernova that will create a planetary nebula. What remains will be a super-dense mass of degenerate matter called a White Dwarf. As for the importance of a star turning into a black hole, it greatly depends on what you consider important. It is important to physicists because it represents a particular set of solutions to a series of equations that, if they were wrong, would mean we had to seriously reconsider Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. This isn't a bad thing, mind you. Scientists actually like having to reconsider theories; it gives them the opportunity to find better theories that may, in turn, offer new and interesting possibilities.
The sun cannot become a black hole. For a star to form a black holeit must be at least 25 times the mass of the sun. When a star likethis runs out of fuel in its core, the cor…e collapses and becomes aa black hole while the outer layers are blasted away in asupernova.
Its has no sufficient mass.
a sun is a mass of helium and hydrogen. when a sun gets too old, the gravity of itself gradually pulls the star into itself, making it infinitely small. the gravity gets stron…ger, pulling in every thing, even light, and sucking it into nothingness.
Simply because it is not massive enough. A star needs to have a mass that's at least 3 times that of our own sun to turn into a black hole.
No, because in order for a sun to become a black hole it must be eight times larger then our Sun.
