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.
The Universe is much larger, and contains many solar systems.
A solar system is a single star in this case the SunA galaxy is an area in the universeA universe is every thing.
The Solar System is the Sun and other interstellar objects which revolve around it.A Galaxy is a massive collection of stars.The Universe is everything.
simply,the difference is that earth is a planet in the solar system and the universe is the entire infinite space containing the solar system,stars, asteroids ,black holes and all that space has to offer.
he thought that the universe and the solar system was the same thing but know we now that they are to separate things
They thought it was a explosion in the universe so they sent astronauts into space.
Geocentric understanding places the Earth at the center of the solar system or universe (depending on what is being discussed, and when) A Heliocentric understanding places the sun at the center of the solar system, or universe.
Our solar system is in the universe.
A universe is a very big realm of darkness with galaxies in it. and there are billions of galaxies in the universe! One of those galaxies is our solar system, and in that solar system is our planet. There probably is even more then just one univserse. O_o Well... Galaxies are within the universe and a universe is defintly bigger then a galaxy
The definition of "universe" is "everything". That includes the solar system Since the solar system is a part of the universe, and since there is other stuff in addition to the solar system, and since there is nothing more in addition to the universe, we can see that the universe is bigger than the solar system.
The Universe contains the galaxy's which contain the solar systems which contain the planets and stars.
The Geocentric model of the solar system proposed that the Earth was at the centre of the system (and universe), while the sun and planets revolved around the Earth. We now know this not to be true and that the sun is at the centre of the solar system (Heliocentric).
A solar system can be contained within a galaxy.
The Geocentric model of the solar system proposed that the Earth was at the centre of the system (and universe), with the sun and planets revolving around the Earth. We now know this not to be true and that the sun is at the centre of the solar system (Heliocentric).
A universe is a area in space that contains many galaxies and a galaxy is a group of stars of 100 billion or more. Finally a solar system is a sun/star that has an orbit (gravitational pull) and has planets or other matter orbiting it.
`Solar system` is the smallest. then `Galaxy`, then `Universe` is the largest.
The Solar system is the collection of planets orbiting around the sun(sol). A constellation is a collect/pattern of stars seen in the night sky.
In a geocentric universe the earth is the center of the universe or solar system and everything revolves around it. In a heliocentric universe the sun or a star is the center of the universe or solar system. We live in a heliocentric solar system with the sun as the center.
No the Universe encompasses everything including all the solar systems; i.e. the Universe is bigger than a Solar system
The universe, because the universe consists of the solar system, which consists of planets and galaxies.
No. The universe is much, much larger than the solar system.
Moon, Solar System, Galaxy, Universe
In order from largest to smallest.... Universe - Galaxy - Solar System.
The universe contains billions of galaxies and the Milky Way contains between 100 and 400 billion stellar systems (like the Solar system).
