DEAR SUN, HOW FAR ARE YOU?

Algebra Level 4

Suppose you have a very very large piece of paper (maybe larger than the surface area of planets) of thickness of about one-tenth of a millimeter. You tear the paper into half and place the two halves one upon the other. Again you tear the resulting sheet (consisting of two sheets of paper) into half and repeat the procedure. If you repeat this process many many times, then the thickness of the papers will increase very much.

Approximately how many times will you have to continue the process in order to reach the SUN ?

P.S. Don't google this. You will lose the fun.
