I am under the impression that the angular momentum of the cloud of gas that formed our solar system came from the angular momentum of the Galaxy. Is this true, and if so, does this mean that other stars in our galaxy must rotate in the same direction as the Sun, and that furthermore, planets in other star systems exist in more or less the same plane in relation to their parent suns as is the case in our solar system? Also, is the Sun's equatorial plane aligned to the equatorial plane of the Galaxy?
