      Hi commando,
      they would not melt, probably they would directly evaporate!
      The temperature on the Sun surface is “only” about 5500 degrees C, but if you go deep inside it goes up to several millions degrees!
      But with all the sunlight, you would have time to get a very nice tan before evaporating 😀

      Yes, but then again so would everything else!
