    When Stars go Nova, scientists still aren't sure what exactly they become because of the level of destruction that follows and the far reaching effects or crap that gets shot out of the star that could land many light years away from the location of the nova.

    The solar system was believed to consist of nine planets.  In 2006 it was decided that Pluto is not a planet because of it's relatively low mass.

    Planets generally come in pairs of similar sizes:
    Earth/Venus, Mars and the either unformed or exploded planet of the asteroid belt, Saturn/Jupiter, Uranus/Neptune.
    Mercury and Pluto are the two "oddballs".
