What two minerals is the sun made out of?
The sun doesn't contain any minerals at all - it's too hot for big molecules to stay together. The sun is made up of two main elements, hydrogen and helium. Hydrogen makes up about 92% of all of the atoms in the sun while helium makes up about 7.8%. Oxygen, carbon, neon and nitrogen make up most of the remaining 0.2%.
