5 Gyr ago would have been more massive by a mere 1/10,000 of the present value. Indeed, although the Sun loses 109 tonnes/sec, direct measurement by the Michelson Doppler Imaging instrument on the SOHO satellite of solar diameter over much of a solar cycle has found no evidence that annual diameter change exceeds 15 mas (milliarcsecond or 1/1000 of a second of arc) [11]. Of course mass loss may have been greater in the past especially if the Sun experienced a spell as a T tauri star. As it happens, the presence of neon-21 (21Ne) in a number of carbonaceous chondrites (including the Murchison meteorite) indicates irradiation by energetic protons from the young Sun.
