Just a funny thought I had about planets and flying into space really quickly.
First, two things: Gravity, and centrifugal force.
Gravity is when a small object is attracted to a bigger one, i.e. little arthropods attracted to large mounds of rock. Gravity is the reason we don't just fly away as the earth is spinning at around 1,038 MPH (At the equator). Because the earth has greater mass than us, we are pulled towards it.
