Is a Universe bigger than the Solar System?
The Solar System is our Sun, the planets, their moons and a whole host of other interstellar stuff. Our Solar System is part of the Milky Way Galaxy, a collection of billions of Stars. Our Milky way is a galaxy part of a collection of many galaxies called the Local Group. Our Local Group is part of the the super cluster called the Virgo Super Cluster which is part of the Universe.

No. The largest star yet discovered is VY Canis Major. It's diameter falls roughly within the orbit of Saturn. Cosmologist believe (although this could change tomorrow) that s…tars likely cannot be much larger. VY CMaj is near the end of it's life cycle. While it is producing an atmosphere containing elements that scientists have not known the source of, and is one of the most luminous objects in the Milky Way, cosmologically speaking, it will not exist much longer.
No. A galaxy requires more than one star in the first place and all currently known binary or multiple star systems are larger than our solar system, and galaxies are typicall…y hundreds of millions times larger than any star system.
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… universe contained in what I choose to call 'Infinity'.
There are five planets in our solar system which are bigger than Venus; 1. Jupiter(has rings) 2. Saturn (special rings around it made with ice and rocks) 3. Uranus (has rings… around it) 4. Neptune (also has rings around it) 5. The Earth (the twin sister) MissFigglebot- im doing a research project on venus hope that helps
No, the solar system is just the same give to the system of planets which orbit the Sun. There are millions of similar systems in this galaxy and there are millions of galaxie…s in the universe.
Our sun is not bigger than the solar system. The sun is a star, and it contains over 99.9% of the mass of the solar system, but the solar system is much bigger than the sun.
you can't really know the universe is so vast that it is impossible to tell if there is a star bigger that the solar system there are numerous amounts of data unknown about sp…ace. That's just my knowledge because there is so much we do not know about other solar systems and galaxies. Than again i could be wrong. If you mean our solar system, then it may be possible, although unlikely. The logical conclusion would be that a star that big would either have so little mass that it would fly apart and cease to exist (or maybe form a Nebula?), or it would have so much mass that it would collapse upon itself and be a smaller star or form a black hole. If you mean larger than its own solar system, then no, there would not be a solar system since it would be engulfed in the star. The largest known star, VY Canis Majoris, is thought to be so large that it would extend beyond the orbit of Saturn, if it were to be placed in our solar system. One could think that that's almost as big as the solar system but, if you define the size of the system as the diameter of the orbit of the outermost planet, then it's still only about as big as a third of our solar system.
Our moon, the earths moon, is the fifth largest moon in the solar system. Ganymede is the largest moon (a moon of Jupiter), then Titan is the second largest (moon of Saturn), …then third is Callisto (another moon of Jupiter) and the fourth largest is Io (another of Jupiters moons).
Galaxy. Solar system contain planets and stars. While thousands of stars makes up a Galaxy A Galaxy. Our Milky Way Galaxy is ~100,000 light years across. Our S…olar system is a mere ~0.005 light years across.
Yes, the solar system is within the galaxy.
A nebula by far. One nebula's fingertips ( I think it's the eagle nebula? or horseshoe?) is 3 times as big as the solar system itself.
Seven moons in our solar system are larger than Pluto - namely Triton, Europa, Earth's moon, Io, Callisto, Titan and Ganymede.
The universe is older
Accruing to my research the milky way is bigger because the solar system is in the milky way
That can't really be compared. A constellation is, roughly speaking, a general direction in the sky, so you can't really assign a size to it.
