Our sun is just an average star, and a mere glance at it should be sufficient to convince anybody that it cannot be gaseous inside. A ball of gas would not have a sharp circular outline like the periphery of the sun. Gaseous clouds do exist elsewhere in the universe, but they do not appear as suns or stars. The periphery of the sun does, however, bear a remarkable resemblance to a horizon of ocean water. This conclusion is further corroborated by the density of the sun which is just slightly greater than that of ocean water--exactly what would be expected if the sun consists mainly of water, but with a solid core at the center.
The heat of the sun is probably generated by bombardment of its outer atmosphere by cosmic rays consisting of subatomic particles drawn in by the gravitational force of the sun. We have a similar heated layer in the upper atmosphere of our earth where cosmic ray intensity is much greater and the temperature is hundreds of degrees higher than at the surface of the earth. Since the gravitational force at the surface of the sun is thirty times that at the surface of the earth, it is not difficult on this basis to account for the 6000 degree temperature at the surface of the sun, without making any fantastic assumptions of interior temperatures of millions of degrees.
Just as there is no invisible dark matter required in the galaxy to save the electric universe theory, there is no invisible Oort cloud of comets required to provide a theoretical comet source. In the electric universe - what you see is all you need.
The Voyager spacecraft discovered that the inner portions of Jupiter’s rapidly rotating magnetosphere contain an extremely hot gas-like mixture of positive ions and free electrons known as a plasma. Voyager instruments found that the temperature of this plasma is astoundingly high, exceeding 300 million degrees Kelvin. That is much hotter than the interior of the sun, but it is so thin that it generates only a tiny fraction of the sun’s energy.

Thanks for the coming to the thread. Your information has been very enlightening, as usual. :-D Still, how is it possible for the temperature to drop that much? The sun's corona is millions of degrees, how can it drop to a maximum heat range of a little over +800 degrees F (on Mercury)? Space is a very poor conductor, but solar radiation shouldn't have such a huge drop-off in temperature.
