The surface of the sun is more extreme than a nuclear war zone.

The extremely strong force of gravity created by the sun is constantly causing its own atoms to squeeze together. When two of the sun's hydrogen atoms are crushed together with enough energy, a nuclear reaction called fusion takes place, fusing the atoms together to form a single helium (He) atom. This reaction releases even more incredible amounts of energy being released—a single solar flare can release the energy equivalent of 100 atomic bombs exploding all at once.
