Yes. It is falling around the sun. Its not falling into the sun because the earth is also moving perpendicular to the force of gravity. Gravity is constantly pulling on it but at different angles so that the by the time the earth is moving in the direction the sun's gravity was pulling on it its now quarter of the way around it and the direction the sun is pulling on the earth is perpendicular that of the original state. Yes this means the astronautics are also falling.

Since the day it formed the moon has been slowly being flung away from the earth by tidal forces. Some day it will be flung away and go into solar orbit by itself, we will no longer have a moon.
Earth has the tendency to maintain the tilt of its axis. The axis changes its direction in space, though, much like a spinning top. This is known as precession.
no you can not.
They are both falling as a constant acceleration towards the earth
They do fall. But they're traveling fast enough so that the surface of the Earth falls away from them as fast as they are falling. Same thing that keeps the Earth from falling into the sun.
Yes it is
No. Satellites ARE falling. But they are also moving "sideways", and so quickly that by the time the satellite has fallen to the Earth, the satellite has continued AROUND the Earth, and missed!
They are essentially in a state of permanent free-fall. Their ship is falling to earth at the same rate as the curve of the earth is falling away form them; ergo continually falling. It has nothing to do anything 'anti-gravity'.
The duration of Falling From Earth is 1.17 hours.
Falling From Earth was created in 2007-12.
Our Earth is not in a falling orbit.
Once it hits the Earth's surface, it will stop falling.
This natural wonder is the largest curtain of falling water on earth
It is a projectile falling with an acceleration equal to that of free fall. (an object falling in a vacuum at the earth's surface)
There are no "falling stars". The phenomena we call a "falling star" is actually a meteor burning up as it enters the Earth's atmosphere.
No, for the very good reason that stars, even the smallest ones, are much more massive than the Earth. If anything were falling, it would be the Earth falling into the star.
Gravity is the reason of things falling down. It is the force exerted by earth,which attract things towards the centre of earth.
The acceleration of falling objects in Earth is about 9.8 m/s2.
Gravity hold everything on earth
