How many times will the solar system fit into the galaxy?
Billions of times
NO! galaxys are many thousand times bigger than our solar system
Galaxies are larger, often containing hundreds of solar systems.
It takes about 225 million years for the solar system to travel once around the Galaxy. Th solar system is about 4.6 thousand million years old. So a rough estimate would be 20 times.
Yes, many times bigger. The solar system consists of our sun and the objects that orbit it. The sun is just one star out of an estimated 200 billion in our galaxy.
The solar system did not make the galaxy. The galaxy consists of billions of stars, of which our sun is just one. It has the planets and many other things orbiting it and together it is all known as the solar system. There would be many other solar systems in our galaxy.
Galaxy It contains many solar systems
Andromeda is a galaxy, not a solar system. No one knows how many planets are in the Andromeda galaxy
A galaxy is many orders of magnitude larger than a solar system.
Earth's galaxy is not called the solar system. It is called the Milky Way. Our solar system is one of many solar systems in the Milky Way.
No. Our solar system along with many other solar systems make up the milky way galaxy. So no, the Milky Way galaxy is larger than our solar system.
Yes. A galaxy contains many solar systems.
there are many galaxies in our ****** galaxy duuuhhh
Yes a solar system is a sun star with planets circling it and there can be many solar systems inside any galaxy.
There are eight planets, including Earth, in our solar system, there are many solar systems in our galaxy, and there are countless galaxies in the universe.
None. A galaxy is orders of magnitude larger than a solar system. Out solar system is just one small part of one galaxy which contains billions of solar systems.
No it isnt, the Galaxy is larger than the solar system in otherwords the solar system is a part of the milkyway galaxy No. The solar system consists of the sun and the planets, asteroids, and comets that orbit it. Our solar system is just one tiny part of the Milky Way Galaxy and our sun is just one of the billions of stars it contains. Many of the other stars have their own solar… Read More
The solar system is located in a galaxy called Milky Way.
No. The milky way galaxy consists of our solar system and many other solar systems. Since Jupiter is part of our solar system, you can safely conclude that it is indeed a part of this Galaxy.
the milky way is not a solar system, it is a galaxy, what kind of question is that?
The definition of the Solar System is our galaxy. The word solar comes from the word sun. So I'd have to say galaxies are bigger than solar systems, and OUR solar system is smaller than galaxies because there are many galaxies a lot bigger than the galaxy we live in. We have yet to discover in the big universe.
A galaxy is much larger. It contains many millions of stars, which are all the central parts of systems like our own solar system.
No, our Solar System is not the galaxy. Our Solar System is the Sun, and the planets around it (plus a few other objects, such as asteroids and comets). Our Sun (the center of our Solar System) is a star; in the galaxy there are several hundred billion stars, each of which might be called a solar system. At least if it is confirmed that it has planets - but it has already been confirmed… Read More
No. Our galaxy is the Milky Way, our sun is one of maybe as many as 400 billion stars in it, and we live in a small solar system on the outer reaches of one of the arms.
The Sun is in fact at the center of our solar system and all our planets revolve around it (in an elliptical path-- which means in an oval-ish form). However, a super-massive black hole is at the center of our galaxy (the Milky Way). Our solar system is located at one of the spiral arms of the galaxy, and there are many more solar systems and stars etc. in our galaxy than the ones in… Read More
There are many solar systems in the galaxy only none of them are the same, they coild be very similar to each other sometimes but they are not the same.
It is not known. Scientists are still not sure how many dwarf planets are in the solar system or how many true planets are in the galaxy. If estimates from our solar system apply elsewhere, however, the number is probably in the trillions.
How many times has the solar system orbited the center of the galaxy since the sun and planets were formed?
At about 225,000 years per revolution, that would work out to about 20 times - give or take.
From Wikipedia (article on the "Milky Way"): "It takes the Solar System about 225-250 million years to complete one orbit of the galaxy"
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!
A galaxy is made up of all sorts of matter, including stars. Many stars have object orbiting them, such as planets, asteroids, and even other stars. Solar systems orbit the galactic centre of a galaxy. (Solar systems don't orbit a galaxy, they ARE the galaxy)
Our galaxy has over 200 billion stars; many of them do have planets, and thus qualify as a "solar system". As to the total number, we will never know, as solar systems will live and die. As a rough guess, at least 50% of all stars should have planets - so that could be classified as a "Solar System".
No, it's the other way around; our solar system is a (very tiny!) part of our Galaxy. Our galaxy is many BILLIONS of stars, most of which probably have (or perhaps, once had) some sort of planetary or asteroid system in orbit around them. Scientists once thought that planetary systems like our solar system would be scarce. But recent discoveries have found planets circling many or most of the nearby stars.
The milky way galaxy is the galaxy that our solar system is located in. There are currently three generations of stars in our galaxy.
The Andromeda Galaxy is a separate galaxy, about 120,000 light years across, containing trillions of stars - possibly many with planets. Our Solar System is a single star with 8 planets and at best measures 2 light years.
the sun is the smallest by far.... the milky way IS our solar system.....many solar systems make up a galaxy and there are many many galaxies in a universe... now they claim to have found even more UNIVERSES..... wow.... we are but grains of sand.... how cool is that eh???
No. A galaxy is a collection of stars ... possibly as many as hundreds of billions of stars in one galaxy. Our sun ... including all of the comets, asteroids, moons, and planets including earth that make up the solar system ... is one star out of the estimated 200 to 400 billion stars in our galaxy.
The Milky Way is a Galaxy and a Galaxy is made up of many billion solar systems. A Solar System (Sol means sun) contains a star or stars and planets revolve around them
Diameter of our Solar System: 2 light-years. That's if you include the Oort Cloud; many definitions of "Solar System" make it much smaller than that. Diameter of our galaxy: 100,000 light-years.
How many times has your solar system orbited the center of the galaxy since planet Earth was formed?
Earth orbits the galatic core once every 230 million years.
Solar System: The sun with the celestial bodies that revolve around it in its gravitational field. Galaxy: A collection of star systems; any of the billions of systems each having many stars and nebulae and dust.
Yes, they certainly can be. In fact, Galaxies are clusters of solar systems, so they always will be. For example, our solar system is just one of many in the galaxy "Milky Way." We reside around one in many specks of light roughly midway between the edge and center of the Milky Way.
there are many galaxies that exist in the universe the one these are milky way galaxy,black hole,solar system
In our solar system there is only one star, which is the sun. All other stars you can see are in our galaxy, the Milky Way. Many have planets around them, and so they are solar systems.
No. Our solar system is about 2/3 of the way out one of the spiral arms of our galaxy, a LONG way from the center. Considering that the center of the galaxy (of many galaxies, actually) is probably occupied by a supermassive black hole, it's probably safer to be out that far.
NO, it is the solar system whichis part of the Milky Way Galaxy. There's also the faint band of many stars that's called the Milky Way. That's a long way from the solar system, but within the Milky Way Galaxy.
No, it's thought that most of the 200 billion or so stars in our galaxy are solar systems themselves, with planets in orbit around them. These are know as exosolar planets, many have been identified through their gravitational effects on the stars.
How many galaxies like our own would it take if they were placed edge to edge to reach the nearest galaxy?
Less than one. * The Milky Way (our galaxy) has a diameter of about 100,000 light-years. * According to the Wikipedia, the Canis Major galaxy is at a distance of 25,000 light-years from our Solar System. However, its status as a galaxy is disputed (in other words, it may not be a galaxy). * On the other hand, the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy is at a distance of about 70,000 light-years from the Solar System… Read More
Yes. A solar system consists of a sun or star with its satellites. (It can be 2 or 3 stars.) Its satellites are its planets, asteroids, meteors, comets, clouds, and other stuff in orbit around it. A galaxy consists of many solar systems. The Milky Way is a galaxy.
This is estimated at about 200 million years.
No, Makemake is a dwarf planet, a very small part of our solar system. Galaxies are made of many thousands of solar systems.
