there is 1 solar system in spaec ;)

Thanks for the feedback!
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.
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 ;)
Within the actual universe, there is no way to know. However within the observable universe, since we are the one's observing, our solar system is at the very center. …
Yes, any system of planets that orbit around a star is called a solar system
The solar system consists of the planets and debris in orbit around our star. There are many solar systems in our galaxy, ours is but one of myriads (many thousands--possibly… even billions). Each of the stars in our galaxy orbits about the center of the galaxy. Our sun requires some 200 million years to complete one orbit. To give some idea of the scale of the solar system, although earth whips around the sun once every year, Uranus (the furthest planet from the sun within our solar system) takes 84 years. Pluto takes 250 years to complete one revolution. While it would take light some 25 hours to cross from one section of the solar system to the other, it takes light 263 million hours (30 thousand years) to get from the sun to the center of the galaxy. The Milky Way Galaxy is about a hundred thousand light years from side to side, and is one of some one hundred billion galaxies existing within our universe. Does the Milky Way Galaxy occupy a special place within the universe? No. Our galaxy is large, but otherwise fairly unremarkable. Our sister galaxy, Andromeda, is the biggest galaxy in our local group (about 20 galaxies). There are some galaxy WAY bigger than ours, containing trillions of stars.
It would be an enormous waste of materials for all those billions of stars if there were only one solar system!
Of course! The universe is like everything, so the solar system is a small part of it but its still a part!
Yes. There are many other solar systems in the universe. In fact there is the probability for some 200 billion solar systems in our own Milky Way galaxy alone, because our …sun is one of 200 billion stars in the Milky Way.
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.
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 o…f the Earth-visible universe. With regards to the rest of the universe, we are almost certainly nowhere near the center.
Solar System is our Sun and the eight planets (Plus all the other stuff that revolves around our Sun). The Universe is everything - I mean everything. Trillions of stars, bi…llions of galaxies and more than likely trillions of other solar systems.
Well, when we first left Mars in 1846 to transition to our new life on Earth, we created the best known creation to all of mankind, Reddit.com. This extension of our love for …narwhals who bacon at midnight shows our true dedication to squeezing our little life sized Solar System into the third universe of the Terran race. This whole event of fitting the only solar system in all of the cosmos began when we first held of the nasty Zerg from the planet Char. Through our mighty expedition through the stargates, we ended up meeting Doctor Who along the way with her sidekick who got drunk at a party, ended up taking nude pictures of herself, get her on the news, arrested, and then put back onto the show with a raise to her salary although the series ended. This... this is our brave story of how we fit our Solar System into the universe we call 'The Milky Way Bar.'
There are on average about 100 billion stars in each galaxy, and 100 billion galaxies in the known Universe, so that means that there are 10,000 billion billion stars in the k…nown Universe (or 10^22 in scientific notation - that's 10000000000000000000000!!) Even if only one in ten of those stars have planets - which is far too low an estimate - there would still be 10^21, or 1000 billion billion solar systems in the known Universe alone - and there are probably an infinite number beyond the boundaries of what we can see!
