** It's strongly implied at the end of the episode that their "adding heavier elements" trick actually DIDN'T work, and the Asgard just used the attempt as a distraction so they could fix the sun themselves without the Goa'uld being able to prove they did it (such an action would've been forbidden by the Protected Planets Treaty).

Either through natural causes or galactic vandals who go around StarKilling [[ForTheEvulz for fun]] and profit, the local star is set to die; this usually involves ArtisticLicensePhysics even ''with'' liberal uses of {{Phlebotinum}}. [[labelnote:(Science!)]]Most people have no conception of how vast a sun is, nor what happens during a star's life as a main-sequence star. Our sun is 30% brighter now than when the Earth formed, and some time in the next 0.5-1.1 billion years it will grow bright enough that the Earth will become uninhabitable in its current orbit. Said orbit, however, is projected to change, making Earth gradually veer ''further'' from the sun, allowing it to stay in the habitable zone for more time than originally predicted. In either case, our sun has billions of years left before it leaves the main sequence (and it's not quite massive enough to ever go nova).[[/labelnote]] You can imagine the desperation a planetary civilization will feel when it's ''their'' turn to see their sun die. Cue an attempt at Solar CPR. A [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien sufficiently advanced]] civilization may develop a MagicAntidote or solar-scale WorldHealingWave that can stop this from happening (or at least discover a group of aliens who do).

(A red giant isn't the same thing as a ''nova''. A nova requires a close-orbiting white dwarf to siphon material off a companion star; solitary stars like the sun cannot go nova. The sun is also not quite massive enough to ever go nova).[[/labelnote]] supernova.)[[/labelnote]] You can imagine the desperation a planetary civilization will feel when it's ''their'' turn to see their sun die.

* In ''Franchise/GreenLantern'', Blue Lanterns can rejuvenate dying stars with the Hope of those on a nearby planet; the process turns the star blue, which is implied to mean it has been made young again.

Earth's plants are adapted to the sun's current mixture, and could be sunburned by such a large increase in higher-energy blue light. Let alone plants adapted to a planet orbiting a dim red star.[[/labelnote]]

* During the ''[[{{Mystara}} Wrath of the Immortals]]'' StoryArc, the player characters have the opportunity to help end the Week Of No Magic that afflicts the world. One result of their success is that it revives the internal sun of the Hollow World, which had shut down in the absence of magic.

* An entire episode of ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' is based around this. The sun is repaired by changing a lightbulb.
