What is the age of the universe and the solar system?
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 ;)
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'.
no because if there was a parallel earth there would have to be parallel planets
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!
No. The Universe is something quite different - and much bigger than a solar system, or even a galaxy.

The Universe is at least twice as old as the Solar System
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.
there is 1 solar system in spaec ;)
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
