Would you please answer these questions for me 1) I am trying to get an understanding of the relative difference between a solar system, to whatever--a constellation?, to a galaxy, to what?--a universe? I was taught that a constellation is composed of two or more solar systems that have a common center. Is that true? 2) Our solar system has the sun as its center. What is the name of the next larger center of which our Earth is a part? 3) If the Milky Way galaxy has a center then what is the name of the center and what is the name of the center around which our universe revolves? What is larger than the universe? Is it cosmos? Thank you for your help! jwb
