Is to read up on the shrinking sun theory to determine the earth's age (about twenty million years).

But if the sun expanded, wouldn't its mass and gravity differ as well causing our orbits to change?

If the sun was larger in diameter, wouldn't that make the planets' orbits shift farther away from the sun? So if that happened (the shift), then the sun would never touch the surface of the Earth...or would it?
