Inertia is what pushes us to the opposite side as to a car turning a corner. The Earth is moving at 1000000000miles/hr around the sun, ina circle. If the sun was to just disappear and earth suddenly just stand still, - would everyone on earth keep heading in the direction that the earth was going? - would the earth just keep going forward in the direction it was going when the sun disapeard? - or would the gravitational field of the earth spining on it's axis provide enough gravity to keep everyone still on earth, but the earth - stays still? - keeps going in the same direction as it was heading when the sun disappeared?
