And with multi-phasic shields we can fly a starship into the corona.

@3,
Off the top of my head, without googling, I'd guess at least a thousand Earths would fit in there.

And to think there are stars many times the size of our sun. Can you just imagine?

You can see these from your front walk for only about $500. Look up "Coronado PST." Unfortunately, the level of detail is just slightly less impressive; say, a trout vs. a blue whale.

3, well, the Sun is 100 Earth's across at the widest point, so you can probably estimate from there. The full cubic volume of the Sun is approximately 1 million Earths.

It's better in ultra-violet too... Swoon! SDO...
