Peter is correct of course: there will be no meteorites from any of the gas giants. However,
perhaps you meant one of Jupiter's satellites? That would be a possibility. Of course, the impact
producing such future meteorites would have to be sufficiently energetic for fragments to
escape not only the satellite's gravity, but also the large gravity well of Jupiter itself. --Rob

Jupiter is a gas giant. The chance of a meteorite from the planet is 0.

Does anybody has heard of meteorite from Jupiter? Does it exists? Does anybody suspects that maybe he is in possesion of it?
