A pulsar is a rapidly spinning neutron star, and a neutron star is created when its host star explodes as a massive supernova explosion.
Any planets, which formed along with the host star, should have been destroyed or ejected out of orbit when the star blew itself apart.
Yet, one of the first extrasolar planets found was located around a millisecond pulsar PSR B1257+12.
It is now believed that these planets are either the rocky core remains of massive gas giants (chthonian planets), or planets that had formed from the remains of the supernova explosion during a period of secondary planetary formation.

These are like rocks or very small planetary bodies in the solar system.
The star Polaris may have its own planetary system. Certainly none in our solar system come close to it
If this is from Florida Focus, and in general terms, Modern astronomers would suggest the Sun is not the exact center of the Solar System, but would agree that the Sun is not revolving around Earth.
Saturn is in the same planetary system as Earth, the Solar Sytem. This system is in turn part of the galaxy known as The Milky way.
For a start, the solar system can definitely be no younger than Earth. The age of the Earth can be estimated from radioactive decay.
Anywhere there are stars. Hundreds of planets have already been discovered outside our own Solar System.
No, a pulsar star is not in our solar system.
As of the end of 2010, planetary astronomers have documented about 245 known satellites of the planets in the solar system.
There isn't a pulsar in our Solar System. The closest known pulsar is 280 light years from us.
No. There is only one star in our Solar System, the Sun and it is not a pulsar.
The galaxis are bigger than planetary nebulae, that are bigger than planetary systems.
A sun is a star that is the center of a planetary system.
The gears in a planetary gear system are the drive gear, ring gear, and planetary gear.
well since astronomers cant see all of space its impossible to andswer but the biggest in our solar system i believe is Ganymede of Jupiter, in the galaxy the largest is appartently also ganymede
It makes up about 70% of all the planetary matter in the solar system.
Not exactly, while a pulsar is a specific type of neutron star (that being a "spinning neutron star") and a binary system is a pair of stars orbiting each other, a pulsar does not need to be part of a binary system. It would be possible, however to have a binary system with one of the pair being a pulsar and the other a neutron star (assumed to be the non-spinning or "normal neutron star" variety).
Ptolemy sought to explain planetary movements by stating that every planet in the solar system revolved around the sun. Astronomers began to question this explanation when they realized that planets often appeared to be moving backwards relative to Earth.
