The Earth isn’t likely to get lost into deep space for the next 100,000 years at least. In fact, all of the solar system’s planets will be stable for that time frame.

The odds of Earth, or any planet, being shot off from its orbit is always less. As Newtonian physics states, an object in motion will stay in motion unless struck by another force. And for something as the size of a planet, it would require a significant force to push a planet out of its orbit. ??

However, there are instances of planetary reshuffling in the solar system’s own history. One of the most extensively accepted models of solar system arrangement-the Nice model, explains the way the outer planets departed early in the solar system’s history and would have created havoc on the internal rocky worlds, possibly removing or even swallowing smaller proto-planets in the process.

However, researchers assure that such a migration is supposed to occur in the next 100,000 years. Angel Zhivkov and Ivaylo Tounchev from the Department of Mathematics and Informatics at Sofia University in Bulgaria utilized computer calculations to conclude that the planets are supposed to remain stable. Their eccentricities are going to stay small, similar to their inclination. Likewise, the semi-major axes (the radius of the lengthiest part of an elliptical orbit) will not shift considerably for any of the planets.
