Why does sun explode at high age?

Come on, it's realy criticall issue! Sun doesn't explode at high age, it should become red giant. Very criticall error, and confusing people.

The sun will expel its' outer layers after the red giant phase during something called a nova.

Granted, red giant phases don't exist in US2, and the nova looks just like the supernova.

Here we go again...

The sun explodes because of its battle between gravity and nuclear fusion. Nuclear fusion are small explosions created by two high speed hydrogen atoms smashing to create helium. The core from the intense gravity is also being crushing down, But the reason the core is not solid is because of fusion. When a star gets old nuclear fusion runs out of energy and charges up while the core collapses from gravity and the fusion rips out the core and the core sends a shockwave through the stars layers causing a "Supernova." And so that is why the sun explodes.

P.S. Here's a picture of a supernova shockwave splitting a planet.

That's uncalled for Sir, no one asked you to step by step described a star on its death bed

well the sun won't go through a supernova, also the sun will explode (shed its outer layers), and it does go through a red giant phase before that, you probably just had the speed of the sim up too high to even see the red giant phase.

Now that you mention it you do see it expand a quit a bit before "shedding its outer layers"

The sun is to small of a star to go supernova.
When it dies, the sun will swell up into a red giant star and possibly take the first three inner planets when this happens. After that phase, it will expel its out layers into space and slowly become a white dwarf.
And the nebulae left behind will be a planetary nebulae.
If you would like to know what a planetary nebulae looks like, just search for the cat eye nebulae.
Its also a planetary nebulae.

No, the sun wont explode, it will just fade away after becoming a re-- *BOOOM* hahahaha just kidding WHOA thats BRIGHT!!!!!!
