Which is bigger the solar system or the universe?
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 Solar System is our Sun, the planets, their moons and a whole host of other interstellar stuff. Our Solar System is part of the Milky Way Galaxy, a collection of billions …of Stars. Our Milky way is a galaxy part of a collection of many galaxies called the Local Group. Our Local Group is part of the the super cluster called the Virgo Super Cluster which is part of the Universe. So YES.
Galaxy. Solar system contain planets and stars. While thousands of stars makes up a Galaxy . A Galaxy. Our Milky Way Galaxy is ~100,000 light years across. Our Solar sy…stem is a mere ~0.005 light years across..
The solar system includes the sun and all things orbiting it, so naturally the solar system is bigger than the sun.
From largest to smallest: Universe; galaxy; solar system; planet.
No, the solar system is just the same give to the system of planets which orbit the Sun. There are millions of similar systems in this galaxy and there are millions of galaxie…s in the universe.
A nebula by far. One nebula's fingertips ( I think it's the eagle nebula? or horseshoe?) is 3 times as big as the solar system itself.
Constellations aren't really single units that we can measure the size of, as they consist of many stars that appear as patterns in our sky, but they are all completely separa…te to each other and spread out over large distances. However, given that they have many stars in them, and our solar system is connected to one star, then the combined area of the solar systems of all the stars in any constellation would be bigger than our solar system.
The universe, then our spiral galaxy(The Milky Way).
The "solar system" is the name we use to describe everything associated with the sun. The sun is one of an estimated 400 billion stars in this galaxy. This galaxy is one… of an estimated several billion galaxies in the universe. The "universe" is the name we use to describe: everything
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, because the universe consists of the solar system, which consists of planets and galaxies.
Maybe. The biggest known star is way past the orbit of Jupiter (Source for everything-Science Channel: How The Universe Works; Extreme Stars) . note: Biggest star is said t…o be a billion times bigger than our sun "Sun is nearly a million miles in diameter" 870,000miles (ibid) ...(Previous poster:Mass-wise, it's a whole different story!)
Well, the biggest planet is Jupiter. It has a surface area of 6.21796Ã10 10 kmÂ²
The word "universe" means "all space, all time, and everything in them". It's the concept that includes everything, and bigger than which nothing is.
Obviously, the Universe is the biggest of that lot.Next biggest is "galaxy", then solar system, then star, then moon.A comet is usually bigger than a meteorite, but not always….
