The planet continues to travel forward, but the stars gravity holds onto the planet making it go in circles. Or it might be a third, a quarter. Why don't they ever run into each other.

The gravity of stars pulls on nearby planets. Use our calculator to find the equivalent in grams of half US cup of rice or any of many other ingredients. All the planets are in stable orbits around the sun and never comeclose enough to be significantly affected by each other's gravity. In order to be in a stable orbit at a certain distance, according to the laws of gravity, each object needs to be moving with a particular speed.

Why don't planets orbiting the Sun ever hit each other. This holds for both galaxies and planets. Planets want to move in straight paths.
