What is the age of the universe and the solar system?
Our solar system has been reliably dated to about 4.6 billion years.
No. The universe is much, much larger than the solar 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'.
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.
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.
No one knows it. Scientists lie or exaggerate about knowing. Although the above is partially true, scientists do have theories about how the solar system was formed. If the e…ntire solar system was formed at the same time then all objects in the solar system are the same age. Using radioactive dating of meteorites scientists calculate how long it has been since the meteorite solidified and go based on that date.
The Solar System is about 4.6 billion years old.
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 at least twice as old as the Solar System
8 in the Solar System Unknown billions in the universe. There are 8 planets in our solar system and 5 objects identified as dwarf planets. There are at le…ast 81 planets confirmed to be around nearby stars, and another 256 possible plants that are not yet confimred. There is no way of knowing how many planets there are in the universe.
14 billion years is a ball park figure for the age of the universe not the solar system. Depending on who you talk to, ages for the universe range from 11.3 billion to 13.7 bi…llion depending on whose theory you accept. Oldest rock on the surface of the Earth date around 4.3-4.4 billion. Geologist use 4.5-4.6 billion as the age of the earth which becomes the bottom limit for the age of the Solar System. The age of the Solar system can be defined as when the Sun became hot enough to ignite, starting the fusion process. The elements of the Solar system existed long before the event of 1st light for the Sun, as the dust cloud which became our Solar System contracted forming the planets and Sun. If you call the birth of the Sun when it first gave off light-started the fusion process astrophyscists, astronomers and nuclear physicists using the law of conservation of energy and nuclear energy working backwards from calculating the mass of the sun sort of thing come up with varying answers depending on the assumptions you use. My personal guess is 5-6 billion for the Sun since 1st light.
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. …
A planet exists within a solar system, a solar system exists within a galaxy and a galaxy exists within the universe, which is like, really freaking big.
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.'
A solar system is a star with planets going around. Like our sun (which is a star) and all of its planets. A solar system is the smallest of your three. A galaxy is a gro…up (millions) of stars, each of which may or may not have planets. The universe is everything, which includes hundreds of thousands of galaxies and other stuff too. Since it is everything it is the largest.
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.
