are galaxies just really large solar systems?

    No. Galaxies are gravity-bound conglomerates of stars and space matter. Galaxies contain everything from dust clouds to solar systems. Solar systems consist of a central star orbited by objects that are not stars, such as planets.

    Not exactly. The name “solar system” implies that everything revolves around a star, such as planets, moons, and space debris. A galaxy is a massive collection of potential solar systems that all orbit around around a central point. Also included in galaxies are nebulae, stars without things orbiting them, asteroids, and a whole manner of other things that perhaps we have yet to discover. If anything, a solar system is a very dumbed-down galaxy; the only thing they have in common is that all things orbit around a central point, which is usually a massive object in space with a massive gravitational pull.

    Yes. Galaxies are massive rotating gravitationally bonded conglomerates or system that consists of stars, stellar remnants (an interstellar medium of gas and dust,nebula) and space matter. Galaxies are the huge cluster of dust clouds and distant stars and it consist of a solar system within it. The core of the galaxy The Galactic center is the rotational center that bonds all objects in a cicular sphere. The solar system consists of the central star (The Sun) orbited by planets, asteroids, and mysterious things that is not discovered by man. All of matter including the solar system and everything in it orbits the central point with a great gravitation pull. So galaxies are larger than solar systems.
