What are the distances from the sun (or any star, mass relative) that each of the elements of periodic table would begin to melt. I tried to extapolate the distances from the sun that all the elements would begin to melt and I got an abusrd result on my excel chart for the closest distance. I used some old data that I have at home about water ice and methane ice, but I got 1000 degrees Celsius at zero distance from the sun and that has to be wrong since the surface of the sun is 5500 degrees Celsius. Please Help!
