Though the exact impact of this giant gas planet is relatively unknown; current space theories suggests Jupiter acts as a Vacuum Cleaner for the Innermost Planets (Mars, Earth, Venus and Mercury) by taking bombardments from comets and meteorites flying from the outer space due its immense gravity. Jupiter receives 200 times comet and asteroid impacts than the Earth.


Another theory suggests Jupiter was primarily responsible in shaping the Solar System from its initial chaotic form. If not for Jupiter, all possibilities of planet formation mainly, the Earth would have been neutralized. The Whole Solar System might have looked like asteroid belt.
