During the accretion of the sun, how did it not create a nickle iron core and become unstable like a super nova?

+2 votes
4.5 billion years ago, the earth formed as a collection of dust and rock in orbit around the sun, which should have been made of the same stuff. When a star develops an iron core, it stops the fussion process and explodes into a nova or greater.  How did the sun prevent itself from having a massive nickle iron core?  2. Does it have a solid earthy metal core and how does that affect the fusion process?  grrrwink68@yahoo.com
