Many of these are similar to the Sun. We don't know yet if they have planets around them, but we have started discovering that many stars in our galaxy have planets, so that is probably true in other galaxies as well. cheers, Terry &91/quote&93 How big are the planets that orbit these stars And how small is the smallest galaxy

1 Replies and 3637 Views How did scientists do that? �3637 �1 Started by Anonymous In looking at the activities for today, there were two graphs that went back to the 1700's following the activity of the sun. How did scientists make their observations long ago, without all the technology and tools that they have today, AND how can scientists compare the data from then and now accurately Lastly, how come the data on the sun being active stops at 2000. That was 11 years ago Where would I find more recent data
