According to latest understandings of the evolution of the Solar System, 
Jupiter messed up the inner solar system by migrating inwards when it 
was out of enough 'food', only to be checked by Saturn. Earth and Mars 
(and asteroids) are what they are now because of this. Unchecked, 
Jupiter would probably have mopped up all the inner planets and become a 
'hot' Jupiter. This is the series:
