      You would be burnt to a crispy cinder if you tried to land on a star- stars are really hot. Plus they are made of gas so it would be like trying to stand on a super-hot cloud.

      Even the closest star is ridiculously far away so it would take more than a hunan lifetime to travel to 🙁 Landing on it definitely not… that would be a fiery oneway mission!
