I'm not 100% sure BUT I think our sun is not the type to go 'nova', but it will eventually die and expand outward by burning off most of itself thereby losing enough mass to contain itself and the growing ball of gas will finally engulf our solar system. I'm pretty sure that that's what will happen rather than a nova. Either way the earth is toast in a few billion years.
