If there is no Oxygen in space, how the Sun Can Burn?

The Sun does not "burn", as we see on wood or paper burning. The Sun is shining because it is a huge gas balls, and a process called nuclear fusion in its core.

If there is no Oxygen in space, how the Sun Can Burn?

Nuclear fusion occurs when one proton destroys another proton in such hard so keep sticking and also releasing some other energy. This energy then heats the other ingredients (the protons, electrons and such) nearby. This warming is finally moving from the Center (core) Star outward, eventually causing the surface radiating out into space into heat and light that we can see as a star.

People, including scientists, sometimes say that the Sun "Burns hydrogen" to make it shine. But it's only a parable. Hydrogen does not burn but fused into helium. So no oxygen is required.
