Did you know: The approximate age of the Solar system is 46 billion years old and there are predicts that it will last another 5,000 million years.

Why is the solar system important?
Our solar system is the planetary system that orbits a star and all of the objects that travel around it—eight planets, dozens of moons and millions of asteroids, comets, and meteoroids. Most stars host their own planets, so there are likely tens of billions of other solar systems in the Milky Way galaxy alone.
