In other words, formation of the universe is based on 3 major theories: (1) the Big Bang theory (most prevalent), (2) Steady State theory, and (3) the Oscillating Universe theory. The Universe is made up of galaxies grouped into clusters and super cluster. Our knowledge of the Universe is a result of scientific observations and use of sensitive tools such as radio and x-ray telescopes, spectrographs, etc.

For example, the Hubble Space Telescope is providing the spectrographic imaging of material surrounding the 4 million year-old star, AB Aurigae. The collected information will help scientist piece together the observations and data gathered to theorize how planets are formed.
