Oh sure we would not burn immediately from 10 feet, but would the Eart stay in orbit? Maybe that person means that when the earth would move 10 feet closer to the sun then where it would normally be, the gravity would pull it out of it's orbit. And 10 feet farther then it would eventually fly away. Even if it takes a few bilions of years.

earth moves 3.8cm away from the sun per year, your argument is invalid.

My argument? Learn to read. I have not made an argument in that comment. I was merely trying to understand how the person in OP's post could think that 10 feet would matter so much.

I knew there was a reason I bought these 200 pounds stress relieving grips..

I think you accidentally your science.

That's not how orbits work. You have to be accelerating to change orbit, and even at that, you would have to be going radical two times as fast as we are currently in order to reach escape velocity.
Trust me, I just took the AP physics exam today.

Okay I do not believe that 10 feet would make such a difference in this case but when an object's orbits around some planet or star gets smaller that eventually the object would fall because of the gravity, and when it gets bigger that eventually it would fly away due to a lack of gravity, right?

Kinda, only if the "center" object's gravity pull is stronger than the orbiting object's own opposite inertia. One example would be the Moon. It is getting farther and farther every year, and one day will escape its orbit on Earth... Still, it is VERY slow.

Oh nice, how do you think you did? Some friends of mine took it.
