  • If a planet is roughly equal distance between 2 stars, is it possible for it to orbit both of them in a figure-of-8 orbit?

    Best answer: It may do so a few times, but the orbit wouldn't be stable; only under perfect circumstances would it last a while. There are cases where a planet will orbit the center of gravity between two stars (Proxima Centauri orbits Alpha and Beta Centauri like this, in fact), but... no 'interesting patterns' -... show more
    Best answer: It may do so a few times, but the orbit wouldn't be stable; only under perfect circumstances would it last a while. There are cases where a planet will orbit the center of gravity between two stars (Proxima Centauri orbits Alpha and Beta Centauri like this, in fact), but... no 'interesting patterns' - that simply wouldn't be stable.

    Earth (and her sister planets) are far enough away from each other that there's very little force affecting them; while there *is* some, the effect is minuscule when you factor in the sheer momentum of each world. For a planet to 'fall' into the sun, you'd need to rob enough of it's orbital energy so that it's trajectory intersects the surface of the sun.... that's a LOT of energy to steal.
    Same for 'drifting into space' - now, you'd need to *add* energy to the planet such that it can climb up (and out) of the sun's gravity well - again, that's a LOT of energy to add.

    There are some cases of planets being "sling shot" out of orbit - but, generally, that requires the gravitational pull of a similar-sized or larger world acting on it. (There's some thought that we had another Neptune sized world in our solar system - but Jupiter threw it out: http://discovermagazine.com/2012/may/09-the-solar-systems-lost-planet)
