Explanation of the red cap of the moon Caronte


Mission dates New Horizons of NASA combined with laboratory experiments and exospheric models revelation of the probable composition of the red cap in the moon Pluto’s Crown.

This example describes the atmosphere of the methane dynamics of Caronte using new experimental data proportionally to the fascinating visibility of the original people of the red moon of this moon as described in two recent articles.

“Antes de New Horizons, las mejores imágenes del Hubble de Plutón revelaron solo una mancha borrosa de luz reflejada”, explica in communication Randy Gladstone of SwRI (Southwest Research Institute), member of the New Horizons Research Team and author of new studies. “Además de todas las fascinantas descubiertas en la superficie de Pluto, the sobrevuelo reveló an unusual characteristic in Caronte, a sorprendente gorra roja centrada en su polo norte “.

Pocu después del encuentro de 2015, los cientificos de New Horizons propusieron que un material rojizo “similar a la tolina” en el polo de Caronte podría sintetizarse mediante la luz ultravioleta que descompone las molecular de metano. They are captivated by the escape of Pluto and the world is congested in the polar regions of the moon lasting their long nights. The tholines are residual organic pegajos formed by chemical reactions impulsed by light, Lyman-alpha ultraviolet brilliance is dispersed by interplanetary hydrogen molecules.

“Our hallazgos indicated that the drastic oleades of stations in the delta of the atmosphere of Caronte, as well as the light that decomposes the methane condensate, are clave to complicate the origins of the polar zone of Caronte,” said Dr. Ujjwal Raut de SwRI, author of one of the articles entitled “Charon’s Refractory Factory” in the Science Advances magazine. .

The team reproduces the manner of realist conditions of the superficiality of Caronte in the new Center for Astrophysics of the Laboratory and Experiments of Spanish Sciences (CLASSE) of SwRI for medir la composition and the color of the hydrocarbons produced in the inner hemisphere in the inner hemisphere of Caronte que el metano se congela bajo el brillo de Lyman-alfa. The team will enter the medicine in a new model of the atmosphere of Caronte to show that the methane is decomposed into residues in the polar north of Caronte.

“The latest experiments in ‘photolysis dynamics’ of our team are proportional to the new limits in the contribution of the Lyman-alpha interplanetary to the synthesis of the material of the Red of Caronte,” said Raut. “Our experiment methane condensation in an ultra high power chamber with high exposure to Lyman alpha photos to replicate with high fidelity conditions in the Caronte region.”

The SWRI values ​​also revealed a new simulation by a computer to model the delayed methane atmosphere of Caronte.

“The model set the pulsations of the stations ‘explosive’ in the atmosphere of the Caronte from the extreme changes in the conditions due to the long journey through Pluto alrededor del Sol”, said Dr. Ben Teolis, author of an article related to “Extreme Exospheric Dynamics at Charon: Implications for the Red Spot” Geophysical Research Letters.

The team included the results of SwRI’s ultra-realist experiments in the atmospheric model to estimate the distribution of hydrocarbons complete that emerged from the methane decomposition of the ultraviolet light influence. The model has polar zones that generate mainly ethane, an incoloro material that does not contribute to a red color.

“We believe that ionizing radiation from the solar wind decomposes the escarp polar cocaine by Lyman-alpha to synthesize materials every one of the most complete and responsible ones of the unique alphabet in this enigmatic moon“, dijo Raut.” El etano es menos volatil que el metano y permanece congelado en la superficie de Caronte mucho después del amanecer de primavera. The solar exposure will be able to convert the ethan into persistent deposits of persistent rosaries that contribute to the red cap of Caronte “.

“El equipo está listo para investigar el papel del viento solar en la formation del polo rojo”, dijo el Dr. Josh Kammer of SwRI, who has secured the continuation of the NASA’s New Frontier Data Analysis Program.
