  • Because the sun said "if you fall, I'll destroy you" so if the earth wants to keep living and not swallowed by the sun, it has to stay up. It's a constant struggle. Can't imagine how stressed the earth is :(

  • Well, that's because "Earth" is being held by the gravity of the "Sun".

    Not only Earth Sun's gravity is so strong that it can hold all the planets and their moons in our solar system in a elliptical/circular path, so that they orbit around the Sun.

  • Technically nothing in space can fall down as there is no gravity in space so everything floats. I mean if the earth wasn't held in place by the suns gravitational field/pull it would just float out into open space but we wouldn't feel a thing unless we hit one of the other planets, in which case we would all die.

    the only difference for us if the earth moved would be that it would get colder and darker, same thing would happen if it moved downward.

  • It keeps falling towards the sun, but it keeps missing. So it is falling Down, constantly and eternally.

  • Fall "down"? There is no up or down in space. It's held in orbit by our closest star.

  • It is constantly falling around the sun... Exhibit one: Newton's Cannon...

  • It does, it keeps falling "down" right towards the Sun.
    But since it is falling fast enough it only keeps on being flung "around" the Sun without the ability to crash into it.
    This is known as "orbit".

  • Because down on one side is up on the other, and they balance out.

  • the gravity that effects the earth is from the sun.

    take basic physics/science courses.

  • It's held up by a giant turtle and I know you are next going to ask "what holds up the turtle?" so I might as well let you know, it's turtles all the way down.
