We revisit the distant future of the Sun and the Solar system, based on stellar models computed with a thoroughly tested evolution code. For the solar giant stages, mass loss by the cool (but not dust-driven) wind is considered in detail. Using the new and well-calibrated mass-loss formula of Schroeder & Cuntz, we find that the mass lost by the Sun as a red giant branch (RGB) giant (0.332 Msun, 7.59 Gyr from now) potentially gives planet Earth a significant orbital expansion, inversely… Expand
