    Nothing like a terrestrial planet. I don't think it's possible to say one way or another about a gas giant though. Their composition is too similar to the Sun.

    I would say the IAU has rendered this an impossibility. Any object devoured by the Sun would not, technically, be orbiting the Sun, nor would it dominate the neighborhood around it's orbit. Therefore, any object devoured by the Sun, was not, by definition, a planet.

    I'm not worthy! I do have my moments, though few and far between. I think my last moment was in June of 1980, when I failed chemistry and convinced my instructor that I deserved a C, even though I failed the final exam and had skipped all but two quizzes for the entire semester.
