Where is the solar system located in the universe?
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.

between mars and Saturn
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.
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 ;)
it is the second planet in a line of 8 including Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune
It's far away from the Sun (30 to 49 AU or 4.4 to 7.4 thousand million kilometres), usually further out than Neptune, in the Kuiper belt.
Earth is the third planet from our sun in the Solar System after Mercury and Venus. Following Earth is the Asteroid Belt, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
It is the second planet from the sun.
There is only one star in our solar system called Sol or the Sun. It is located pretty much in the dead center of the solar system.
Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and is the largest one in the solar system. It has a mass of 1.9 x 1027 kg and is 142,800 kilometers (88,736 miles) across the equator…. Mean distance from the sun is 778,330,000 km.
The 1st planet from the sun
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.'
If you meant to type "Quasar" and simply neglected to proofread your question, then the answer is: There is no quasar in the solar system. If "Quaoar" means something com…pletely different, then I have no clue.
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.
There is insufficient information for us to even begin tounderstand this question. Please editthe question to include more context or relevant information - particularly abou…t what IT is: the Milky Way, the local galactic cluster, or what.
