The comet was called NEAT and passed through our solar system in Feburary 2003.
Here is another link that even talks about the so called cover-up. www.space.com...
Truth is Nassim has some very interesting thoeries about the nature of our universe but they unfortunately will not get noticed as long as he does not stay grounded in the facts; which he seems to overlook for the dramatic and $ in sales.

actually, Jupiter is not a 'gas giant'.
Many are excused for thinking this, and in fact the Astronomical community did hold this as plausible until in 1994, comet shoemaker-levi 9 tore apart and impacted on to the planets surface.
Please see this link:
There are some fantastic photographs around showing the surface of jupiter, beneath its once thought impenetrable clouds.Have a look and tell me what you think; if interested I am sure I've seen other photos that do show some surface detail ; did a bit of browsing and this is all I could come up with for the moment.

As predicted beforehand, the collisions generated enormous seismic waves which swept across the planet at speeds of 450 km/s (280 mi/s) and were observed for over two hours after the largest impacts. The waves were thought to be travelling within a stable layer acting as a waveguide, and some scientists believed the stable layer must lie within the hypothesised tropospheric water cloud. However, other evidence seemed to indicate that the cometary fragments had not reached the water layer, and the waves were instead propagating within the stratosphere.
Astronomers did not observe large amounts of water following the collisions, and later impact studies found that fragmentation and destruction of the cometary fragments in an 'airburst' probably occurred at much higher altitudes than previously expected, with even the largest fragments being destroyed when the pressure reached 250 kPa (36 psi), well above the expected depth of the water layer. The smaller fragments were probably destroyed before they even reached the cloud layer.
