Deposition of brecciated material as ballistically-emplaced or resurged ejecta is also unlikely because of the compositional homogeneity.
Data are summarized as FTIR spectra of gas in a sealed system [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 3 OMITTED]; FTIR spectra of particulate matter collected during laser processing [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 4 OMITTED]; NMR scan of liquid containing dissolved ejecta compounds [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 5 OMITTED]; and mass spectrometer scans of gases evolved from C[H.
While most of Nix is a neutral white, the crater and its ejecta blanket (the material thrown out by the crater) appear to be a much redder material.
Developments of our understanding of the nova ejecta in the optical and recent data from the upgraded VLA have shown that, in the latter case, the ejecta morphology do not fit the standard simple spherical thermal free-free process.
She has given them a name -- Low-Aspect-Ratio Layered Ejecta Craters -- and presented the findings this week at the American Astronomical Society Division for Planetary Sciences in Denver.
On Jul 8 an active prominence was observed at 08:22 UT and ejecta from this prominence was seen at 09:36.
In a second line of our proposal, we plan to investigate the detailed conditions for r-process nucleosynthesis in neutron star mergers, determining the dependence of the amount of ejecta on the EoS.
Contrary to some predictions, the astronomers were surprised to find the ejecta from earlier outbursts stayed in the vicinity of the star and formed a disk of debris around the nova.
Since velocity of the ejecta is the squared component in the recoil formula, a large component of recoil is eliminated.
Ejecta kicked up by Deep Impact contained lots of ice, and the absence of ice in Scheila's interior shows that it's entirely unlike comets.
The biggest crater, that of Tuttensee (Figure 2), which is filled by a lake, has a rim wall 8m high, a rim-to-rim diameter of about 600m, a depth of roughly 30m and an extensive ejecta blanket.
The auburn ejecta splatters on green grass, and its hue counterbalances the turquoise sky and hot orange sun.
The stellar ejecta of these extreme carbon stars throws carbon into the interstellar medium where it can feed the creation of carbon-rich molecular clouds.
The vertical asymmetry of the material that surrounds the black hole may also arise from the phenomena that are associated with the periodic ejecta of material from the black hole, which may be influenced by the magnetic properties of the super dense collapsed star.
