# Fold To The Sun

Folding a piece of paper in half results in a folded sheet twice as thick as the original sheet. Similarly, folding this doubled sheet results in a folded sheet four times as thick as the original sheet, and so on. If this process is continued, how many folds would be necessary to obtain a folded sheet whose thickness stretched from the earth to the sun?
