New Study Shows Asteroids Could Camouflage Themselves With Other Kinds Of Material
There has been a recent study claiming that asteroids may not be what they appear to be as some have tendencies to camouflage with other materials. Thus, this could indicate a whole new perspective in the materials found on an asteroid and its own composition.
Asteroids Discovered To Have The Ability To Adapt Properties From Other Materials Upon Collision
Recent study suggests that asteroids have the ability to adapt or camouflage to the materials of other compositions that they may have encountered with. According to Pierre Vernazza, a research scientist from the Astrophysics Laboratory of Marseilles (LAM), this recent discovery of an asteroid's capability have answered the long-running question about the fundamental composition of the asteroid and whether its surface actually reflects its own composition. Thus, a recent study has now proven that as a matter of fact, steroids have the ability to camouflage the material that they come in impact with.
Dwarf Planet Ceres Discovered To Have Material Composition Gotten From Other Asteroids
This has been proven by the study of Ceres, a dwarf planet in the asteroid belt with the use of NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) aircraft. Other than being deciphered as a dwarf planet, Ceres may also be considered a large asteroid. Upon the study on its composition, it has always been known that Ceres is rich in carbon similar to other large asteroids. However, it has recently been found out that it also composes of other materials that can be found in other asteroids. Thus, Ceres may have adapted these materials upon contact with them.
The study then further advocates that this contamination taken from other asteroids may have been brought from interplanetary dust particles that are created when the asteroids come into collision. Furthermore, it has been indicated that Ceres may have been formed outside of the solar system, and came about the way that it is after having collided with other asteroids. This then becomes another scientific marvel when it comes to the study of space and its compositions which have been recorded to be a never ending discovery.
