How is your solar system situated in the universe?
Because it is impossible to determine the extent of the universe because we are only aware of the parts we can see. For this reason, our solar system sits in the very middle of the Earth-visible universe. With regards to the rest of the universe, we are almost certainly nowhere near the center.

Some have been detected round other stars than the Sun. It is conjectured that million or even billions of stars must have their own solar systems, because without a solar sys…tem the average star would have so much angular momentum it would fly apart. Most of the solar system's angular momentum resides in the planets, thus keeping the Sun quiet and stable.
Answer . No
There are on the order of 100,000,000,000 (one hundred billion) galaxies in the universe, as far as current telescopes can detect. Some of these galaxies may hold up to 100,00…0,000,000 stars, but most galaxies probably contain at least 10,000,000,000 stars. Young galaxies under 2,000,000,000 years old may not have formed many solar systems yet, while very old galaxies more than 10,000,000,000 years old may have very few galaxies left. For the galaxies of middle age, as many as 1/4 of the stars may possess solar systems. My comment: While the answer above is true based upon current knowledge, it is essentially incorrect. The answer to your question is: ONE. Our Sun is named Sol - and the system of planets and other objects orbiting it are referred is referred to as "Solar", being of Sol. So other planetary systems exist, but they are not "Solar"... Comment: The above is incorrect, the answer above is for our known universe not the entire universe. There may be even more. The universe doesn't have a known edge, or a wall so, it's really hard to say. It would be possible to even say infinite, though scientists really hate the word infinite ;)
the universe is bigger than a solar system. Obviouisly, because there are many solar systems in our galexy, and many galexies in our universe, there may be more that one unive…rse contained in what I choose to call 'Infinity'.
no because if there was a parallel earth there would have to be parallel planets
The age of the universe is in the realm of 14-13 billion years old, and the age of the solar system is approximately 4.56 billion years old.
No they are different, the universe refers the whole of space, plants ,stars, solar system galaxy..., where as the solar system is the name we give a single star with planets …revolving around it.
The sun is at the center of our solar system. It makes up 99.85% of the mass of our solar system, and due to the way gravity works, this keeps it at the center and everything …else spinning around it.
there is 1 solar system in spaec ;)
There are no black holes within our own solar system. There are, however, black holes located within our own galaxy.
As we only know of our own in any definite terms we cannot say which is the largest. Nor are we ever likely to be able to do so.
The universe is all existing matter, energy, space, and time, seen as a well ordered whole known as the cosmos. Believed to be at least 10 billion light years in diameter, con…taining a vast number of galaxies. Said to have been expanding since its creation in the Big Bang around 13 billion years ago.
Univers is everything in existance, solar system is in univers
No. It is a planet in another solar system about 500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus.
the milky way is our galaxy in which our solar system is situated.
