Hiroshima's atomic bomb will provide keys to understanding the solar system

The extreme conditions experienced by Hiroshima in World War II appear very close to the origin of the solar system.

According to a new study published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, Attack on Hiroshima It was salvaged from the past for a scientific purpose during World War II: Understand how the solar system formed.

Then immediately the created conditions change Atomic bomb like Nebula from which our Sol. In fact, small glass spheres created by a fireball that ravaged a Japanese city A different appearance than most things that form on Earth. Hence the interest in the historical moment in question Japan.

“We don't have much access to these extreme conditions, and using models like this is a An interesting way to explore the conditions in the early solar system“, I said Eos, Greg BreneckaA cosmochemist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (USA) was not involved in the study.

Different, but similar

Yes right Hiroshima doesn't mean the same thing To “seed” the solar system, both happened at higher temperatures and with some of the same elements. Also: two events They may share enough similarities to make the same chemical reactions possibleEnds, Eos, Nathan Asset, cosmochemist and PhD student at the Institut de Physique du Globe (France).
