Default Jupiter ignition question

If all the asteroids in the solor system impacted with jupiter would it be
enough mass to cause jupiter to ingnite?

Jupiter already contains well over 70% of the extra-solar mass in the
solar system. Even if all the planets and asteroids and comets joined
in, it wouldn't grow even 50%. If you limit the growth to just the
asteroids, the growth would be pretty miniscule as a percentage.

Thanks for the reply...so basically there's no chance of us becoming a
binary star system then?

Compres 25 more Jupiters and you will have enough gravity to create
fusion. Jupiter has a surface gravity about 210 % more than Earth.
Suns core is 40% 0f its total mass. Great heat and pressure there

The Sun is 99% of the mass of the solar system . My thinking is if all the mass of the solar systrem was added to Jupiter it would not be enough by far. TreBert
