Could Earth ever leave our solar system?

In Liu Cixin’s short story “Wandering land (opens in new tab)” (first published in the Chinese magazine Science Fiction World in July 2000), Cixin portrays a scenario in which the planet’s leaders agree to promote earth out of solar system to escape from a loved one solar flare which is expected to destroy all terrestrial planets.

This story is, of course, based in the realm of fiction, but could Earth ever really leave the solar system?
