Dying Earth. Computer artwork of the future Sun heating a scorched Earth. In 5-6 billion years the Sun will have exhausted the hydrogen fuel in its core, and it will begin burning hydrogen in a shell surrounding the core. This will cause the Sun to expand. Eventually, all the Earth's air and water will be lost to space, and the expanding Sun will engulf the inner planets, and possibly Earth. If the Earth survives this stage of the death of the Sun, it will freeze as the Sun collapses into a white dwarf star.
