I know that the sun is not the type of star that will burst, but has there ever been any type of theory that it would?
I have bad news and good news. First for the bad news. The sun is the
type of star that will burst. But the good news is that its not going
to burst for a really long time so you have nothing to worry about.

will die or burst. Here is a picture of a star which has become a Red
Giant, which is what our sun will become one day.
