In the movie , a spaceship is travelling towards the sun to put a bomb in it to allow it to shine again (hence the title). The spaceship has a massive shield/deflector at the front to protect itself against the sun.

During the whole movie we can see that everything that goes pass that deflector is spontaneously vaporised!

Question : in the movie's universe, is there mentionned a limit in space where spacewalking pass the deflector could be done without being immediatly wiped of existence ?

Side note : I'm not discussing the science of approaching the sun and not be destroyed nor radiated, according to this video it is possible for a standard spaceship or a leaded spacesuit to stay intact at a fairly short distance of the sun.
