Hey! So we know that the sun and other planets bend the spacetime, and create a wrap in space and it's because of that the planets rotate around the sun. But then why don't the planets, spiral down towards the bottom of the sun due to the wrap created? How is it that they still countinue a fixed orbit?Why don't they spiral down towards the sun? What keeps them in a single path? I'm sorry if this question is dumb.
You do not have to apologize, we all have doubts. Well, the simple and short answer is that the planets are constantly moving (orbiting) around the Sun, and this prevents the planets from going towards the Sun, and continuing on their permanent path. Without this movement around the Sun, it would go to the center (Sun). And without that attraction the planets would fly straight.
