I am still a little confused what happens if the Earth get hit by a very large meteor. Would that change the orbit due to the momentum and total mass or is the orbit change only dependent upon the combined mass of the Earth and meteor?
In addition does the Earth slowly drift away from the sun. I believe the science programs on tv say the moon is receding from us at a one inch per year rate. Are we receding from the sun?
