Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, and the gravity of Jupiter is also the most intense in our solar system. The gravity of Jupiter is 2.5 times that of Earth. The gravity of Jupiter affects every planet to one degree or another. It is strong enough to split asteroids apart and capture sixty-four moons at least.

Some scientists think that Jupiter destroyed many celestial objects in the ancient past as well as prevented other planets from forming. Jupiter is the fifth heavenly body from the Sun and the largest planet in this solar system. It is a huge planet with a mass one-thousandth that of the Sun, but two and a half times that of any other planet.
