If the sun holds all the planets in an orbit by its gravity, then what holds the sun? why doesn't it fall?

We did this one didn't we? It's like a gyroscope. As long as it keeps spinning, it won't fall over. Just wait till the planets grind to a halt!

Yeah, I posted it this way last night, but never got a response so I changed the bold letters and started getting them...but good point...so where will the sun go if the planets all do grind to a halt? maybe that's the unanswerable question...

Sun is revolving around our galactic center....it is just suspended in vast space and even if u think it will fall where do u think it will fall their is no ground to fall. And yes our planets are not goin to halt since their is nothing to stop them.
