Is there energy loss during the annual traveling loop that our planet is making in space?

"Where from?" and "What is?" the energy which propel the seemingly endless trip of our planet around the Sun, assuming there is some friction, over time, for any movement of bodied through space, witnessed by the results of meteors traveling within the universe or human actual experience with propelling energy for space travel or needed energy for manoeuvring and sustaining flights.

Hello alohino,

The total energy for momentum is provided by the sum of the kinetic energy and the potential energy. As the Earth is in motion, it does not lose kinetic energy. And potential energy exists because of the gravitational energy between the sun and the Earth. So the Earth is able to orbit the sun without losing energy.
