Another fascinating animation from ever-philosophical design house Kurzgesagt postulates what would happen in the unlikely event that one were to bring part of the sun back to the Earth. You might be able to kill the sun but the sheer force of the core would wipe out all existence on this planet.

If we brought a sample of it to earth it would cause a lot of inconvenience. The biggest nuclear weapon ever detonated had an energy of 40 megatons of TNT or a cube the size of the Empire State Building. Our sample has the equivalent of 4000 megatons. This is four billion tons of TNT or a cube 1.3 kilometers high…Once the sphere arrives on earth this super dense matter expands instantly and creates an explosion with the force of well, the Sun.
