How Big is the Solar System?

Our solar system is huge. we cannot predict the diameter or the length of our solar system. Our solar system is named as a solar system because planets move around the host star which is called the sun. as it is named by the Latin word “soils” thus anything related to the sun we called solar hence the name “solar system”. How big is the solar system? Our solar system is about 36 billion times larger than Earth (3.6 X 10^10).

our solar system’s size is almost difficult to measure the distance of the solar system is to make a scaled model and put the distance of each planet according to that.

The distance from the sun is 287.46 billion kilometres, as the sun is the host star of our solar system its diameter is 287.46 billion kilometres. There is not any prediction that measures the distance, diameter, or size of the solar system. The planetary size of each planet is measurable and the distance between each planet and distance from the sun to each planet, according to that we measure the predictable diameter of the solar system.

According to scientist the end of the solar system is unpredictable but hypothetically the end maybe consists of clouds with comedy asteroids which wrap the end of the solar system. Hypothetically we can measure the distance of the solar system depending on gravity.

Till the end when gravity does not exist we can consider it like a solar system. Considering only 1 solar system as there an uncountable solar system present in the universe, so what planet we consider then we can consider the end of the solar system.

That means our Milky Way galaxy is pretty big. Even Astronomers do not use miles to measure the many distances because they are too large in our solar system, there is zero gravity as well as no sound, not even light can pass through that much distance. No air is there to transmit the sound waves hence in zero gravity it is impossible to transmit anything hence we cannot predict the measurement solar system. There are eight planets in our solar system. The inner rocky planet is mercury, Venus and Earth, and Mars.

The outer planets are gas giants Jupiter and Saturn and ice giants are Uranus and Neptune. That means our Milky Way galaxy is pretty big. Even Astronomers There are three types of galaxies elliptical, spiral, and irregular. The milky way is the spiral galaxy. Our universe does not have any environment but it contains many worlds including earth with various kinds of climates.

Our stars are arranged in a pinwheel ornament with four principal arms and we existed in the unity of most of the stars in our galaxy are through to host their own families of planets.
