What is the exact precise age of sun?

4.5 billion years isn't an exact age. Exact age means how many billion, million, hundred thousand etc etc years.

4.5 appears to be rounded figure. I don't want to know rounded figure.

    Red-shift data indicates it's 4.6 Billion years old. It'll be too hot for Earth in about half that.

      @ cosmo: was thinking from Sun's 9.5 billion year life-span; used wrong term. Thnx for correction.

    Accurate history records go back about 2500 years, then they get fuzzy.

    First calendar was only 30,000 years ago (carved images of moon on a deer leg bone).

    Even if you do carbon dating of old wood, frozen mammoths, you cannot get precise dates.  Ranges of a thousand years is common.

    Trying to get accurate about age of sun is not possible.  Nothing on Earth's surface is near that old.  Scientists have only sun itself and comparing its type with other stars, doing envelope and pencil calculating of fusion theory.  A half billion here and there is best you can hope for.

      What do you think carbon dating has to do with dating the age of the sun?

    We have no way to know the sun's exact age. And it took millions of years to form. At what point would you consider it to be a star.

    PS. Suns used to be cold inside, I don't know what they are talking and blabbling.

    Tell me your age, and be exact to the nanosecond.

      I can be accurate to about an hour, but that is only back to being born.  I was around for about 9 months before that, science says.

    Nobody knows. You must be mad to think there is any such figure.

    Why don’t you ask god. He was the only one alive that saw the sun being born. The sun can’t speak and tell us how old it is.
