You could hit it with the Earth and have no effect.

Would it be possible to strike the Sun with a man made object and have a effect?
Having that ability would be the kind of thing desired by some?
Testing it would be necessary?
Testing it on the back side highly desirable?

Is this what that testing would look like? Go back 36 hours from 9/2/14, 11 am eastern and watch last 36 hours.
Would we survive a direct shot like that? Would sure hope some would and reform those folks with love and understanding.
How about a movie , real quick, demonstrating how to survive. More of that love and understanding needed I expect...

Well the sun is pretty small. No bigger than the moon when I look at it, so maybe. And we did try to blow the moon up, so I think if they blow the sun up, and are successful then its probably the oil industry trying to make sure we rely on oil forever.
Why would they want us to rely on stinky oil
Leave the sun alone.
if you could melt the Earth into a liquid and pour it into an empty sphere the size of the Sun, then you really could fit in the equivalent of about 1,300,000 Earths

The object will disintegrate before it even comes close enough to touch the sun. That's how hot the sun is!

There is nothing we could do here on Earth to make any effect occur on the sun.The only things I can think of badass enough to alter the sun somehow would be a wandering mega planet as big as the sun directly hitting it,or a black hole coming close enough to begin to absorb our sun.
But if either of those thing happen we would get torn asunder by uber gravity before we got to see the show.
