t varies by an enormous amount depending on the size of the star, the depth beneath the surface, and the star's age. A low-mass red dwarf might have a surface temperature of only 2,000° C. Our sun as a surface temperature of 6,000° C. Temperature increases in the interior, reaching 40 million° C at the sun's core. It will eventually reach about 100 million° C when the sun begins fusing helium. Higher mass stars can reach core temperatures of a few billion° C in their final stages.
