When our sun becomes a red giant, what will happen to Earth when the sun engulfs it? Will Earth just incinerate or will its atoms integrate with the red giant in a way that the Earth be a part of that sunís thermo nuclear reaction? The original question was: what will happen to the atoms of a person who dies on Earth today. Will our atoms still be the same atoms, or will they fuse into different atoms some day, when the sun goes nova or during its life as a red giant? Thank you in advance Tally
