  • Q:

    Why is the sun the main source of energy on Earth?

    A:

    The sun's radiation interacts with Earth's atmosphere and lifeforms to act as the main source of energy. Solar radiation travels in straight waves. Earth's axis is usually angled to let this energy into its atmosphere so that it can reflect from the surface; if the sun's energy is unable to reach Earth because of its orbit, then ice ages occur.
