Answer to Question #10435 in Astronomy | Astrophysics for Md Noor Alam
Let us consider our solar system only and our Earth and other planets are in their orbits as usual, and it takes around 8 minutes for light to reach the Earth from the sun. Now, let us assume, sun has vanished from this moment, and naturally this event will reach our earth after 8 minutes at the velocity of light. So, during that 8 minutes, our earth will be in its orbit undisturbed, is that true?( assuming nothing moves faster than the light). In that situation, having nothing at the center of the solar system, and earth remains in its orbit perfectly during that 8 minutes, how the basic Physics will hold during that 8 minutes. Any explanation?
