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.

Thanks for the feedback!
A solar system consists of a star and other objects orbiting the star, so obviously the solar system is larger. Some very large stars could be bigger than the solar system of …another small star.
No it is not. galaxies are made up of many many stars, which is what a solar system is (along with the planets and other stuff) Hope this helps!
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'.
Yes. The sun is part of the solar system, so the solar system is obviously bigger than it.
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.
yes. Galaxies contain solar systems.
The universe, then our spiral galaxy(The Milky Way).
The definition of "universe" is "everything". That includes the solar system Since the solar system is a part of the universe, and since there is other stuff in addition to… the solar system, and since there is nothing more in addition to the universe, we can see that the universe is bigger than the solar system.
Yes, space is much bigger.
The Moon is within the Solar System. The Moon has a diameter of 1,738.14 km whereas the Solar System has an imaginary boundary of over 30 billion km.
Maybe. The biggest known star is way past the orbit of Jupiter (Source for everything-Science Channel: How The Universe Works; Extreme Stars) note: Biggest star is said to b…e a billion times bigger than our sun "Sun is nearly a million miles in diameter" 870,000miles (ibid) ...(Previous poster:Mass-wise, it's a whole different story!)
The word "universe" means "all space, all time, and everything in them". It's the concept that includes everything, and bigger than which nothing is.
Some, like Ceres, can be very large, while others are as small as a grain of sand. so some are bigger and some are smaller than solar system
Generally speaking, no chance.
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.
