lists in the intro?[change source]

An editor asks "should we list dwarf planets in the intro?" I think 'no', because they are listed below together with a main page for them. Intros are overviews (obviously), and should not be cluttered with details. How that's interpreted, well, Simple intros should concentrate on their readability, so long as major features of the content are introduced or mentioned.

Mass of the sun over time[change source]

What will happen to the orbits of the planets over time as the Sun looses mass through the transmission of radiation? Over the course of a billion years the Sun will have radiated 1.198368 × 10^43 joules. If my calculations are right this is a mass equivalent of 22 Earths. --Nbritton (talk) 16:25, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

As the Sun loses mass, the planets will orbit further away from its centre of gravity. Macdonald-ross (talk) 16:58, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
