Information coming from JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) indicates that the elements discovered in our solar system are similar to those observed in the studied universe.


The elementary composition of a galaxy is dependant on how many stars exist within. It is the formation of stars, followed by their subsequent supernova explosions that manufacture increasingly heaver and different elements. In order to contain the assortment of elements we have discovered, our solar system was formed from well aged and multiple star explosions.

Comprehensive studies of galaxies and galactic groups have shown that the composition of the observable universe is consistent with elements found in our solar system.
