New planets are now being discovered outside our Solar System on a regular basis, and these strange new worlds are forcing scientists to rewrite the history of our own Solar System. Far from a simple story of stable orbits, the creation of our Solar System is a tale of hellfire, chaos and planetary pinball. It’s a miracle our Earth is here at all.

Scientists genuinely don't know what most of our universe is made of. The atoms we're made from only make up four per cent. The rest is dark matter and dark energy (for 'dark', read 'don't know'). The Large Hadron Collider at CERN has been upgraded. When it's switched on in March 2015, its collisions will have twice the energy they did before. The hope is that scientists will discover the identity of dark matter in the debris.
