You’re going to want to bring a lot of insulation, because it does get a bit warm—about 800oF, which is not enough to melt the sturdiest building materials, but is about four times greater than the temperature at which blood boils. Also, just to be clear, it also gets down to -279.4 oF at times, so that will pretty much do you in too.
