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 age of the universe is in the realm of 14-13 billion years old, and the age of the solar system is approximately 4.56 billion years old.
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.
The Solar System [a] consists of the Sun and its planetary system of eight planets, their moons, and other non-stellar objects. [b] It formed 4.6 billion years ago from th…e gravitational collapse of a giant molecular cloud. The vast majority of the system's mass is in the Sun, with most of the remaining mass contained in Jupiter. The four smaller inner planets,Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, also called the terrestrial planets, are primarily composed of rock and metal. The four outer planets, called the gas giants, are substantially more massive than the terrestrials. The two largest, Jupiter andSaturn, are composed mainly of hydrogen and helium; the two outermost planets, Uranus and Neptune, are composed largely of substances with relatively high melting points (compared with hydrogen and helium), called ices , such as water, ammonia and methane, and are often referred to separately as "ice giants". All planets have almost circular orbits that lie within a nearly flat disc called the ecliptic plane. The solar system could be described the following way. Our solar system consists of the Sun at it's center. All of the planets in the solar system orbit around the sun. There are 4 inner planets listed in order of closest to furthest from the sun: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars There are 4 outer planets listed in order of closest to furthest from the sun: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune The inner and outer planets are separated by a ring of asteroids known as "The Asteroid Belt" There are also several Kuiper Belt objects beyond Neptune.
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 ;)
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. …

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.'
