How much energy does the Sun produce in a single second?

“It’s an almost unimaginable amount of energy.

If the sun’s power output for a single second could be harnessed,
it would satisfy the World’s energy demands for the next million years!”

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from:
The Sun (2009), broadcast on the Science Channel

So how many suns are in the Universe?

We know from the Hubble Deep Field experiments
that the Universe contains at least 200 billion galaxies!

And these galaxies would contain about 100 billion stars each!

And the Sun is just an average sized star.
Many are enormous in comparison to our Sun!

So 200 billion x 100 billion = ????????????????
