    Do i have this right now -- mass of the universe

    Edit.

    The mass of the universe is divided thus.


    Dark matter = 26.8%

    Dark energy = 68.3

    Ordinary matter = 4.9%

    The ordinary matter is made up of 3.6% intergalactic gas (nonluminous)

    And 0.4% stars etc (luminous)

    I hope i have as i am always +-1%

    You are missing 0.9% in the ordinary matter breakdown.

    Very doubtful. Planet mass is very much smaller than the sun.

    The missing 0.9% could be dead stars, but I don't have the specifics.
