Eric Roth is located in the Kuiper Belt and, as Eric Sorenson explains, he is helping to find evidence about how planets like Earth formed and took off.
When the New Horizons spacecraft left Earth 14 years ago, the afterlife part was almost an afterthought, the main mission was to explore the dwarf planet Pluto, which happened in remarkable detail five years ago. Suppose there were mountains of ice, but then New Horizons took off. Deeper into space to explore planet formation and lo and behold, I found Eric, just 35 kilometers long with astonishing evidence of how planets form; It's just a lumpy little object in the far reaches of our solar system, in the Kuiper Belt, but it's had a really big impact on all the planetary science and astronomy that we've known for a long time about the major spinning planets. around the Sun in terms of distance.
Little Erica is in the Kuiper Belt, a vast region of orbiting asteroids, comets and icy objects. Erica is Six billion kilometers from Earth, 44 times farther from the Sun than we are, New Horizons' notable findings were that Eric Hoth was once two objects and, instead of a violent collision, they once orbited each other. and they came together at approximately this speed of one to three meters. per second they almost dock in space Erik Haas does not show fractures or craters that would have meant a forceful collision, instead suggesting that the planets may have started from dust and small objects that collapsed together gently, not violently, the Planets have been formed by violent collisions, but how did the planets begin?
It was always a mystery if it's a very violent collision, how things survive. Alena Hyde says Erica's smooth, rust-colored training may solve the puzzle. This actually matches the simulation's predictions for a softer collision, so this really changes the way we understand the planet. Erica Formation, a small object that represents a huge leap in our understanding of planets everywhere. Meanwhile, New Horizons has 10 to 20 years of energy left and is now heading deeper into the Kuiper Belt to learn more about the beginnings of our solar system.
