In the Outer planets region, energy is weak and thus no rocky planets can survive.

Oh, sorry it is an incorrect word used by me.
As we move away from Sun, energy weakens. Curvature of space time mainly depends on the distribution of mass/energy in the open area. When an asteroid enters our solar system, it all depends on the matter contained therein. First of all we have to remember that there is no gravity here. Energy in the space moves towards the asteroid and curves and try to throw it into inertial position. Here in the outer planets region, energy present in the layers is weak and thus mass effect. It is true that each and every closed volume curves the space time. If the asteroid is gaseous form, mass effect is limited. Though energy is weak, it is sufficient to cause and threw it into inertial position. If the asteroid is rocky type, since mass effect is limited it crosses outer region and enters inner region.
However in the case of gaseous planets, each particle can curve the space time and thus they can exist.
And why do you say that the gas giant can do this whereas rocky planets cannot?
Gravitation is not an attractive force between masses, but a pressure force exerted by spacetime on closed volumes that tends to bring them closer to each other.Ok, there is another thinking or possibility that these elementary particles are building blocks and are responsible for Curvature of space time which is not at all correct.
In case if it is a gas giant, it is spread in a wide area and more particles are exposed to energy, resulting in curvature. Though energy is weak particles gets into its grip.
