Origin of the planets

    There is now evidence that the asteroid belt was once a planet. The core of the planet is still in the debris.

    One idea that struck me when hearing about supernova once was that the star collapses and a lot of the outer material of the star then bounces off of the core, and if this happens then the core of the star would be left behind. It seemed reasonable that a small enough star could produce a planet from it's core after going supernova or even a big one if most of the material was ejected. If this was true then it could explain the variety of different material that makes up the different planets. At one time they could have all come from different stars. That is one thing that has not been able to be explained in planetary evolution models. Then something like uneven distribution of diamonds or hard materials that couldn't be formed easily in a star could be explained by the compression of the core from the supernova and the outer layers bouncing off the core. Then something like Jupiter would have been a failed star, and the asteroid belt would have come from debris from the outer material in a supernova. Then it was already thought that a supernova has occurred close to our solar system that was involved in its formation. Then our solar system would just be a collection of mostly dead stars. Then that would mean that solar systems like ours are very common since the universe is so homogeneous, and a lot of stars would have solar systems that are suitable for life. The Earth could have a lot of water because the formation of water in a star cooled it down enough to collapse. Then any star that went supernova due to forming water in it's core would then be suitable for life if it ever came into the correct orbital distance of another star.

    Nope this is absolutely not possible. You are also not using terms properly either, small stars do not produce supernovas, a supernova will only occur if the star has a mass of greater than 8 solar masses. Instead of making things up that you guess might be true, why not google main sequece stars or stellar life cycle and learn something about astronomy.

    This is accurate. All the oxygen, carbon, iron, and other heavy elements above lithium are either from the relatively mild sheding of the outer layer of a small stars o from the material thrown out by the explosion of large stars going supernova.
