It is quite another thing to explain how this motion started. According to Newton's law of motion, an object that is in motion tends to remain in motion in a straight line — unless it is acted upon by some outside force. So a planet in motion would tend to continue moving in a straight line away from the sun. But there is an outside force that keeps it from doing so. And that force is the sun's gravitation. The result is that a planet keeps in orbit around the sun. But what started the planets in motion in the first place? We still don't have the answer, but there are theories to explain this, and they have to do with the origin of our solar system. One theory (the "planetesimal theory") says that a star passed close to the sun-and pulled away some material from the sun. Some of the material did not fall back. The gravitational pull of the passing star had set the material moving in a curved path. This material became the planets, and the pull of the sun kept them moving in an orbit around the sun. Another theory (the "dust - cloud theory") says that a huge cloud of dust and gas began to contract about 5 billion years. ago. It formed into a ball and began to spin. In time, it flattened into a huge disk. The hot central mass of the disk became ths sun. The outer parts of the dust cloud broke away into swirling masses that eventually condensed as planets. And as planets they continued orbiting around the sun. As we learn more about our solar system, a new theory may emerge that will explain how our solar system was created. FUN TME The Riddle Box 1.
