    Wondering if this is possible

    I just want to know if this is possible, i do not want someone to tell me how to do it.

    I am wondering if you can use vectors to store a series of information at a given time
    ex)(my homework which is y i just want to know if this is possible)
    adding a planet and its information to a vector, then using the push_back() feature to put that vector inside another vector
    (vector <double> planet_info() into vector <vector <double> > planet_list)
    where planet_info() looks like
    Code:
    double planet_info()
    {
       push_back(name(string));
       push_back(mass(string));
       push_back(radius(string));
       push_back(planet_type(string));
       push_back(surface_area(string));
       push_back(density(string));
       push_back(gravity(string));
    }
    where the push_back() feature calls the function to input the data

    There's nothing stopping you from using a vector of vectors, or what looks to be more appropriate here would be a vector of structures.
