Expert Answer
Any two bodies in the universe, attracts each other due to gravitaional force. 
According to law of gravitation, moon follows straight line path, gets attracted towards the earth at every pont along its path,
hence moon revolves around the earth, it dosen't fall towards earth.
The same thing happens in case with other planets.
