What is the mass of Jupiter at these speeds? It's going to be many, maybe hundreds of times Jupiter's 'rest mass' isn't it? I'm too lazy and stupid to try to grab an equation and assume I got the right one. It's going to be one of those 1/[1-(v/c)2] things I think, my brain function has declined too for me to try to get it right. I know I've heard of cosmic rays that have had the mass of something like a tennis ball I think, and that's way more by many orders of magnitude than 'hundreds of times' that I just said.
