Computer Model Of Cosmic Dust Particles

Computer Model Of Cosmic Dust Particles:

Indian scientists have created a computer model of cosmic dust particles that can imitate the unique way interstellar comet 2I/Borisov scatters light.

  • By studying the way light scatters off these cosmic particles, they can better understand how comets behave.
  • The model accurately reproduced the scattering of light seen in experiments and observations.
  • It revealed the presence of a large number of porous cosmic dust particles.
  • Cosmic dust particles are tiny solid particles that exist in outer space.
  • They are composed of various materials, including minerals, metals, ice, and organic compounds.
  • Shape From spherical to irregular or fractal-like structures.
  • They contribute to the formation of stars and planetary systems by providing material for accretion. T
  • hey also scatter and absorb light, affecting the radiation properties of celestial objects.
  • These particles serve as building blocks for the formation of larger objects, such as asteroids, comets, and planets.
