I was just wondering, What if I visit a star. I mean landing on a star (Sounds foolish and impossible), but I am curious. According to their statement : every star in the sky is a sun that you can visit, I wonder if they actually meant 'every star (star-system) in the sky is a sun that you can visit'; or it's a hint that we can actually visit/land on a star.

While jumping one planet to another within a system, we can see a star. What if we fly there? Did anyone try? I couldn't find any screenshots or videos of it. I could try. But I'm afraid of dying in space and losing all my collections and starships.

P.S.: I can get a hint from question : Are there any double, triple star systems in No Man's Sky?
But, I am pretty sure that is another question than mine.
My question is Can we visit and if yes, can we land on a star? No matter how many number of stars available in a sytem.

Question remains : Can we visit star? Any Idea?

  • That can give a hint. I wanted to know if I can visit and land on a star. I don't care if there are multiple stars in a system. (There are no multiple stars though.) Thanks for noticing similarity @Zaibis . But, it's not the SAME. – vivek.patwardhan Aug 25 '16 at 12:13

    Note, in the stackexchange network most of the time we consider questions as duplicates as long the duped OP has an answer that fully answers the question. And thats here the case. One could 100% copy the answer there to place it here and it would in all regards answer your question. So by that means it is a duplicate of that question. I placed my vote allready. So the decision is in hands of the community anyways – Zaibis Aug 25 '16 at 12:18

    @Zaibis: The answer may be the same but that doesn't mean the question is a duplicate. If somebody is searching for "Can I land on a sun" and see a question "Are there binary/trinary star systems?" then there is no reason to think the latter will answer their question. The relevant information in the answer to that question is pretty much unrelated to the question as asked and was thrown in as an extra bit of trivia. – Chris Aug 25 '16 at 12:56

    @Zaibis That's not true. If two questions have the same answer, that's an indication that they might be duplicates... but it's not guaranteed. As a simplistic example... If someone asks "what is 5+5?", that's going to have the same answer as "what is 7+3?" but the question itself is different. – Mage Xy Aug 25 '16 at 13:44

No, you can not reach a star. Stars are not actual objects, they are part of the background graphics of the star system. Only planets and moons can be landed on.

I thought I read this myself on another question/answer here but I can't find it.

    You probably read in on this answer – Mathias711 Aug 25 '16 at 7:31
  • That means, even if I try to visit star, I'll never be there. Ughh, just graphics. Thanks @udondan – vivek.patwardhan Aug 25 '16 at 8:03
