If it was just a little closer, we couldn't survive. If it wasn't there at all, we'd be victim to countless more asteroids. Or maybe I'm just a size queen.

Yes, exactly! Jupiter's existence actually bolsters evidence for the rare Earth hypothesis. Based on the thousands of exoplanets they have now observed, astronomers believe that the most common kind of planet in our galaxy is the "super Earth," meaning just planets that are several times Earth's size but still much smaller than the gas giants. We don't have any planets like that in our solar system. Our combination of large gas giants and small rocky planets might be pretty unusual, and Jupiter is like the exact correct size and location to clear out tons of space debris and help Earth avoid collisions. Without Jupiter, there might not be life on Earth at all.

Yeah, but can Jupiter fit its whole fist in its mouth?
