When we were kids we learned that: "If you get close to something hot, you'll feel the heat; if you get closer, you'll get burned." Something curious about this "rule" is that if we generalize it, we could be totally wrong. Ask yourself, for example: now that we are feeling the coolness (or bitter cold) of the winter, is the Sun closer or further away from the Earth? If we follow our "rule" we would say that the Sun is further from Earth. But, we are wrong. In this article, part of CienciaPR's collaboration with El Nuevo Día, Wilson González Espada explains why.
