Yes, we have found evidence of planets orbiting neutron stars. A planet similar to Earth in size and mass could exist around a neutron star, but beyond that it would not be very Earthlike. Such planets probably form from the remains of the supernova.

Why is it most likely that mars would be the first planet that humans would settle on?

Because it is the nearest planet to Earth that does not have conditions readily deadly to humans (poisonous gases in the atmosphere, extreme heat, etc.), and theoretically could be made more Earthlike.

How does the mass of a planet affect its habitability?

We humans evolved here on Earth, in Earthlike conditions. W're pretty adaptable, though, so we could probably survive on a bigger planet with somewhat heavier gravity (perhaps up to 1.5gs!) or a smaller planet with less. But too little gravity and it wouldn't be enough to retain an atmosphere....

Could neutron stars support life?

No it could not most stars burn helium and hydrogen to give light and heat neutron stars are made of only neutrons and gives off little light and the gravity is extremely high compared to a normal star if a earth like planet orbited a neutron star the stars gravity well ( is the pull of gravity that a large body in space exerts. The larger the body (the more mass) the greater the gravity well it has. The Sun has a large (or deep) gravity well) then its gravity well would most likely pull earth into the neutron star so fast and so hard it would smash the planet apart

Did the neutron help the world?

I'm not sure what you intend with the question, but in a sense you could say that the Neutron IS the world. As part of the basic structure of matter, the world could not exist without it. Since the neutron preceded the world, the question is a bit of a non-sequitur.
