It was widely speculated that comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 may have been the origin of this water, but direct proof was missing.
With which planet did the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 collide in 1994?
1994 Photographs the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 crashing into Jupiter.
Ever since the release of sci-fi thrillers like Armageddon and Deep Impact, and the 1994 collision of comet Shoemaker-Levy with Jupiter, "it's become difficult to inform people about newly discovered objects without being sensational," Binzel says.
Several overlapping 8-km-wide pits (top) were forged when a fragmented object--much like Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9--struck the satellite.
Van Flandern's theory had predicted that Comet Shoemaker-Levy had once been such a family of cemetery satellites that was disrupted by previous encounters with Jupiter's gravitational attraction, and which was subsequently strung out into a cemetery train, much as we encounter with the annual Taurid and Orionid meteor streams.

1993 - Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 is discovered by American astronomers Carolyn and Eugene Shoemaker and Canadian astronomer David Levy.
Apart from Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9's historic multiple-hit crash in 1994, the most obvious impact observed on Jupiter took place July 19, 2009, and it left a distinctly dark "powder burn" in Jupiter's upper atmosphere, first spotted by Australian astro-imager Anthony Wesley (S&T: Nov.
During the crossing, icy and rocky debris in the belt could crash into the planet's atmosphere and create the type of cosmic fireworks seen when Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 crashed into Jupiter.
The evidence for an asteroid comes in part from comparing Hubble images of the 2009 impact site with those Hubble took in 1994, when comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 struck Jupiter.
