Suppose the distance between earth and sun becomes half of its present distance.
What is likely to happen to life?
Answer:
Life may no longer exist because some special environmental conditions are needed for the existence and continuation of life on the earth. The right distance of earth from the Sun is necessary so that it has right temperature range, the presence of water and suitable atmosphere and a blanket of ozone.
