Hi, I'm new to this forums (and please forgive my grammer and sentence structure as my first language is not English and I'm trying my best :) I'm just a teenager who has great interest in these types of stuff, never did any proper education relating to this, just some research out of curiosity and interest) Question: I've been wondering, do our sun orbits in a circular or elliptical manner around milky way. If it is elliptical, at a point where it is the closest to Sagittarius A* will our sun loses its velocity and gets "sucked" into the supermassive blackhole? (Senario 1) or will we just spun out like the rest of the stars and continue orbiting (Scenario 2). From what I understand from wiki as well as other sources, it would take around 200 million years to complete 1 orbit around milky way. Are we halfway there? or are we still far from it. Scenario 2: If we are very close to the BH, will that outwardly huge amount of gravity affects us? Gravitational Time Dilation? and due to the immerse speed where we are being thrown out the BH, by any chance will those planets such as Neptune, Uranus that is far away from our sun's gravity break free from our solar system and become a rogue planet? Just a note..I might get some of my understandings wrong..please correct me, I really want learn more. Thanks!!!
