Late-time small body disruptions for planetary defense

New research takes a closer look into at how different asteroid orbits and different fragment velocity distributions affect the fate of the fragments, using initial conditions from a Spheral hydrodynamics calculation. This video shows the hydro simulation in Spheral that provided the basis for the work. LLNL-PRES-805376
