Nobody knows for sure but I think it would be along time like some millions or billions years. Anyway you don't have to worry about that for now. ___________________________ At a close approximation, "never" . In about 5 billion years, the Sun will turn into a red giant star, and _may_ expand enough to consume the Earth. But the math isn't certain yet.

earth plates can and do collide, even though the earth rotates around the sun

The Earth is not going to collide with Mercury. They both have stable orbits, and will stay millions of miles apart.

The solar system (the planets, the earth and the sun) is a part of the milky way, and rotates with the other stars the milky way consists of. The milky way is therefore not going to collide with the earth.

no but my pp will collide into your mother

The earth would be attracted by the sun, and as it came closer the sun, the earth would melt. The earth would probably collide with the sun before or after it would melt.

We do not believe that the Earth will ever collide with the Sun; however, in about 4 billion years, the Sun will probably expand into a red giant, and expand out to consume the planets Mercury and Venus, and perhaps Earth as well. By that time, we will may be able to move the Earth out from the Sun. Science fiction author Larry Niven proposed a mechanism by which it might be done in his book "World Out Of Time".

The Milky Way galaxy will collide with Andromeda, but it will take about a 2 billion years until they collide and finish. Earth will not get blown up, but by then, the sun will probably be out of hydrogen and expand. Then earth will be engulfed and all life will die.

Uranus is one of the larger planets, 7th in order from the sun. It is about 19 times the distance from the sun as the earth is. (or about 1.8 billion miles.) As far as we can tell, the orbit of Uranus is stable so it will continue to orbit the sun and will never collide with it.

Not with earth specifically, but it will eventually collide with the Milky Way Galaxy. Galaxies are mostly empty space, so when this collision occurs the chances of earth suffering a collision as a result are negligible.

because it is going further an inch every year.

no thell just inline with the milky way and the sun

It's scientifically proven that the earth IS extremely slowly getting closer to the sun because the gravitational pull of the sun is really strong but we won't collide with the sun before it expands and consumes the earth. Luckily this will not happen for a few billion years.

Gravitational pull keeps the earth going around the sun. It's like the moon going around the earth, only on a larger scale.

going toward the Sun, Mercury; going away from the Sun, Earth

The sun is in the other side of Earth when it is night.The Sun stays in one place. Also, when the sun is at sundown, you may think that the sun is going to the ocean,but the Earth is rotating AROUND the Sun,not the Sun is going down the ocean.

(well in pics) but it really wont happen because earth is like a big magnet but the gravitational pull will not let the other planets collide with the earth or (even the sun) some say !!

Earth will move away from its orbit.Planet will become dark.Life will be lost eventually with stopping of photosynthesis.Planets will collide as moving.these are few.

Rotation of the Earth, with the sun going out of view.

Going to the sun is farther. :)

Possibly because the sun is a huge hydrogen bomb that keeps going and going and going and going, whereas the earth is a rock with some water and gases on the outside.

The missle is going to collide into the boat. The missles are to collide into the submerine.

No. Ison's orbit never brough it anywhere close to Earth. The comet distentegrated in November 2013 after passing too close to the sun.

Planets do not collide because of the gravitational force of the sun

They are not expected to collide, each has a stable orbit around the Sun.

No they each have its own orbit around the sun and they do not collide
