No one here is agreeing with Sol88's electric comet insanity of actual rock blasted from Earth recently.

Rational people agree that comets Tempel 1 and 67P have low measured ratios of ices to dust. That "very little ices" for comet 67P is ~15% ices.

Sol88 insane stupidity of not knowing that a comet nucleus has a surface and an interior!
Sublimating ices outgassing with a gas production rate Q are on the surface of the comet. There are enough ices on the first few meters of the surface of a nucleus to produce Q.

Exclamation More insanity added to Sol88's insane playbook since he asked for it

Sol88's insane electric comet playbook of ignorance, delusions, idiocy (god of the gaps/false dichotomy/irrelevant mainstream citations), insults (an insane one of Michael O'Hearn), lies

46. Sol88's insanity of citing the Stardust return of only dust grains after a quote about ices/dust ratios.

47. Sol88's insane lie that a "surprise" from the Stardust mission supports his electric comet insanity.
As explained again and again and known since 2006, most of the dust grains had formed at low temperatures and a few dust grains had formed at high temperatures. All of the dust grains formed in space in the early solar system.
Stardust mission
Plucking comet dust from Stardust collectors (December 14, 2006)
Quote:
In particular, the comet dust analysis identified a few grains that contain calcium/aluminum-rich inclusions (CAIs) similar to those found in meteorites known as chondrites. Thought to be the oldest objects in the solar system, chondrites have always been a puzzle because they contain minerals that formed at low temperatures as well as minerals, like CAIs, that must have formed at high temperatures.

This discovery supports a theory of chondrite formation proposed 10 years ago by UC Berkeley astronomers Frank Shu and Hsien "Sienny " Shang in collaboration with Typhoon Lee, an astrophysicist and geochemist at the Academia Sinica's Institute of Earth Sciences in Taiwan. This theory, referred to as the X-wind model of chondrites, says that stars like the sun recycle some of the dust falling into them during formation of the system, melting it and throwing it out from the center in a fiery spray that condenses into small "chondrules," or beads of melted rock. These beads are pushed by the strong solar wind, called an X-wind, out of the solar system disk and settle into the distant reaches of the solar system, where they eventually combine with colder material to form chondrites, asteroids and planets.
A repeat of his insane cult's dependence on press releases that gave rise to:
25. A deluded lie that we have detected clays and carbonates on comets [as found on planets].

Refractory minerals, go look it up champ and stop being so ignorant.

Remember what A'Hearn said?
Quote:
(c) What are comets made of? At the simplest level, a very basic question is whether comets are mostly ice or mostly rock/dirt/refractory material. Whipple’s [2] model of the dirty snowball, the first quantitative model, envisioned cometary nuclei as mostly ice, although our understanding has been evolving more toward mostly rock, particularly for 67P/C-G for which refractory/volatile ratios as high as 6 have been cited [3,4].

Pure fantasy!

An insane lie and insult because we know that refractory minerals are created in the early solar system when comets formed.

Sol88 is doubly insane in this post because when we look up refractory we get Refractory (planetary science)
Quote:
In planetary science, any material that has a relatively high equilibrium condensation temperature is called refractory.[1] The opposite of refractory is volatile.

The refractory group includes elements and compounds like metals and silicates (commonly termed rocks) which make up the bulk of the mass of the terrestrial planets and asteroids in the inner belt. A fraction of the mass of other asteroids, giant planets, their moons and trans-Neptunian objects is also made of refractory materials.[2]

Remember that Sol88 is deluded:
We do not have any measurement of the charges of dust grains from the early solar system ~4.6 billion years ago !
Sol88 is commenting on Stardust results that debunk his electric comet insanity.
Sol88's insanity that merely stating that dust is charged supports his electric comet insanity.
Sol88's usual insane lie - we detected that dust and ice grains around comet 67P were charged.

I'd like to cherry pick this quote from the paper by Patzold.

The nucleus is thus a highly porous very dusty body with very little ice

Along with this ripper

and, not so unrealistically, the nucleus would be a highly porous stony agglomerate, essentially devoid of
volitiles
.

Lying again. Learn to read. From the summary and conclusions;

Quote:
Larger porosities (> 80%) require very high dust-to-ice ratios (Fnucleus >> 7), where the ice content decreases rapidly from afew percent to ultimately zero, representing a highly porous dusty nucleus with little to no ice. This is probably unrealistic in the case of 67P, but not unreasonable because it is the ultimate fate of a comet nucleus at the end of its "active life".
The part you cherry-picked was from a list of possible porosities. They dismiss this in the summary. Comprehension gone walkabout again, hasn't it? They suggest that is the ultimate fate of comets, which may well be correct, especially for short period JFCs.
However, I suspect Patzold et al have got something wrong in their assumptions. Fulle's contemporaneous paper presents no such problems, and includes extended sources for the outgassing, which would explain the differences between ROSINA measurement at the spacecraft location, and those of VIRTIS and MIRO sampling the coma from much closer distances. All measurements of the outgassing rate are way too high for a dry body, regardless of who did the measurements, and how they did them.
The impact ejected ice at Tempel 1 killed your woo 13 years ago. Why are you still here?

On RC's behalf;

Quote:
The Rosetta CONSERT experiment, which studies the propagation of radio waves in the VHF-band (~100 MHz) between the Rosetta orbiter and the Philae lander through the nucleus, has concluded that at least the interior of the ‘head’ of the duck-shaped nucleus is homogeneous down to scales of 3 m and that the porosity is 75% to 85% (ref. 19). As stated above, we consider the lower-porosity value to be more likely because porosities larger than 75% unrealistically constrain the nucleus material to mostly dust with very little ice. The porosity of about 70% to 75% inferred from the mass and the bulk density must therefore be considered an inherent property of the nucleus material.

I am not an expert. Unlike Sol88, I can read and understand English and science and have a memory. The porosity of 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. is in several of the papers that Sol88 has cited !

For example, Sol88's current insane obsession with the ices and dust comet paper: The Nucleus of Comet 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko - Part I: The Global View – nucleus mass, mass loss, porosity and implications
Quote:
For a range of compacted dust material density from 2000 to 3500 kg m−3, the porosity varies between 65–79 per cent when the dust-to-ice mass ratio Fnucleus for the nucleus body lies in the range 3 ≤ Fnucleus ≤ 7. The nucleus is thus a highly porous very dusty body with very little ice.
That agrees with other papers. Comet 67P has a high porosity, low density (537.8 ± 0.6 g/m3) and is made of dust and some ices but I would not label ~17% as "very little ice".

Sol88's insanity is that the porosity of the comet 67P supports Sol88's electric comet insanity. That is insane because a porosity of ~75% tells anyone with two brain cells that 67P is not rock.

Sol88 repeats insane lies about the paper by Patzold !
The range of ratio of dust to ices is stated in the abstract of the paper.
The Nucleus of Comet 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko - Part I: The Global View – nucleus mass, mass loss, porosity and implications
Quote:
For a range of compacted dust material density from 2000 to 3500 kg m−3, the porosity varies between 65–79 per cent when the dust-to-ice mass ratio Fnucleus for the nucleus body lies in the range 3 ≤ Fnucleus ≤ 7. The nucleus is thus a highly porous very dusty body with very little ice.
Patzold et. al. are describing 67P as a comet made up of 33% to 14% ices by mass. Other results suggest the high end of the range, e.g. Fnucleus ~ 6.

jonesdave116 posted before that Sol88 lied by quote mining the paper by Patzold: So let's put another episode of cherry-picking and lying to bed, shall we?

So we have that old adage: "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results". Sol88 is repeating his lies again and again and expecting us not to point out that Sol88 is repeating his lies .

Another spate of an estimated 1025 items of ignorance, idiocy (citing irrelevant mainstream papers), delusion, derails, insults, and lies from 27 July 2018 to 4 March 2019.
(~5 pathetic delusions or lies a day)

Sol88's insane electric comet playbook of ignorance, delusions, idiocy (god of the gaps/false dichotomy/irrelevant mainstream citations), insults (an insane one of Michael O'Hearn), lies

Sol88's electric comet insanity (comets are rocks blasted from planets by electric discharges, etc.).

18 November 2010: The lies, failures and successes of Thunderbolts Deep Impact predictions by Wal Thornhill
10th April 2015: The ignorance, delusions and lies in the Thunderbolts web site, videos, etc.
13 April 2018: A couple of the delusions in Scott's Birkeland current paper.

The electric comet delusion has at least 45 years without a scientific electric comet model or observations to support it!

Over 3 years of abysmal fear of doing basic physics: 25 June 2015 Sol88: Use a impact calculator to calculate the size of the crater on a comet made of rock by the Deep Impact impactor.

SAFIRE insanity in addition to his electric comet insanity.

A NASA spacecraft that will return a sample of a near-Earth asteroid named Bennu to Earth in 2023 made the first-ever close-up observations of particle plumes erupting from an asteroid's surface.
Jets from an asteroid?


No way...

This is going to give both your brain cells a work out reality check. strap in champ. ��

As a side note your very fast running out of candidates for objects that “delivered” water to earth.

You used to think it was comets until 67P, now asteroids are considered the primary delivery vehicle...

Asteroid Bennu is not a comet, real world surprises do not make Sol88's electric comet insanity any less insane.

We are not insane enough to thing that asteroid Bennu is a comet.

OSIRIS-REx reveals asteroid Bennu has big surprises
We expect and have seen that spinning asteroids can give off dust. The surprise observation is the asteroid Bennu has plumes of dust. The other "surprise" is that we had not detected that "Bennu's entire surface is rough and dense with boulders" from the Earth.

Total insanity from Sol88 because Sol88's electric comet insanity requires that comets and asteroids have water content that matches Earth (or other rocky planets) !
Sol88's insanity of comets being blasted from the Earth including in recent times by electrical discharges between planets means that their water is terrestrial water. 67P not having terrestrial water is year another real world fact that emphasizes Sol88's electric comet insanity.

The origins of water on Earth is thought to be several sources - interior, comets asteroids. The isotopic composition of water found for some Jupiter family comets such as 67P does not match what we predict so extra planetary sources are more likely asteroids.

67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, a Jupiter family comet with a high D/H ratio
Quote:
...Previous cometary measurements and our new finding suggest a wide range of D/H ratios in the water within Jupiter family objects and preclude the idea that this reservoir is solely composed of Earth ocean–like water.
(my emphasis added)
Anyone who can read, will understand that this paper only excludes Jupiter family objects as sources of Earths oceans. That leaves the billions of comets that are not Jupiter objects as possible sources .

Plumes of dust from an asteroid are not jets of dust and gas from sublimating ices on a comet.

Another spate of an estimated 1029 items of ignorance, idiocy (citing irrelevant mainstream papers), delusion, derails, insults, and lies from 27 July 2018 to 20 March 2019.
(usually an average of ~5 pathetic delusions or lies a day)

Sol88's insane electric comet playbook of ignorance, delusions, idiocy (god of the gaps/false dichotomy/irrelevant mainstream citations), insults (an insane one of Michael O'Hearn), lies

Sol88's electric comet insanity (comets are rocks blasted from planets by electric discharges, etc.).

18 November 2010: The lies, failures and successes of Thunderbolts Deep Impact predictions by Wal Thornhill
10th April 2015: The ignorance, delusions and lies in the Thunderbolts web site, videos, etc.
13 April 2018: A couple of the delusions in Scott's Birkeland current paper.

The electric comet delusion has at least 45 years without a scientific electric comet model or observations to support it!

Over 3 years of abysmal fear of doing basic physics: 25 June 2015 Sol88: Use a impact calculator to calculate the size of the crater on a comet made of rock by the Deep Impact impactor.

SAFIRE insanity in addition to his electric comet insanity.

What are causing particle plumes to erupt from an asteroid's surface.

Impact? Spin up?

What else in your limited toolkit reality check?

Oh and for the totally clueless Asteroid–comet continuum objects in the solar system

Poor reality check still struggl8ng to define the difference between comes and asteroids...

The answer is implied in the article about an asteroid Sol88 is insanely citing in a comet thread. The last paragraph is about spin rate variations. That asteroids spin up and eject dust has been pointed out whenever Sol88 goes crazy about that "asteroid-comet continuum" paper.

Sol88's totally insane act of repeating a citation to a paper stating there no asteroids that are comets ! The continuum is between rocky asteroids ejecting dust and ices and dust comets with jets.

I have the "toolbox" of sane, working science.
Sol88 has a "toolbox" full of insane delusions he parrots from his deluded cult with the addition of his own insanity, e.g. the current stupidity about asteroids in a comet thread.

Insanity that I am struggling when comets and asteroids have defined differences that children can understand. Excluding his deluded cult and Sol88 of course.

This is a comet.
This is an asteroid.
There are also main-belt comets (asteroids not comets) that sometimes show comet-like behavior. See Asteroid–comet continuum objects in the solar system.
There are also dormant and extinct comets which could be mistaken for asteroids. See Asteroid–comet continuum objects in the solar system.
There are also a few active asteroids outside of the main asteroid belt. See Asteroid–comet continuum objects in the solar system.

That's the best you can do. 'ol mate?


Let me focus your goldfish like attention span RC.

Impact??? No

Spin Up??? Maybe but into plumes?? No

Landslide/Cliff Collapse??? No

Sublimation??? Then its a comet.

What else have I forgotten Reality Check?

Comet 67P has little to no ice but we also see plumes of particles erupting of the subsurface sometime explosively!

and the best of the best can only suggest collapsing cliffs as the cause... some brilliant minds at work here, bit like Reality Checks.

4. Conclusion
In summary, the population of small bodies in our solar system today, including both minor planets and classical comets, is far less well-delineated into distinct groups of objects than the classical paradigm might have led one to believe in the past. These objects instead appear to occupy a continuum spanning the full range of observational, physical and dynamical properties
classically attributed solely either to asteroids or comets.
Asteroid–comet continuum objects in the solar system

as i believe, Reality Checks' deluded belief that Comets and Asteroids are separate well defined objects.

Seems like many here, he was wrong...again.

How many years have the mainstream been working on a plausible explanation for cometary jets now?

We still have zip, nada , nix, sweet fanny Adams

hint

Is the dust charged?

Is there an ambipolar electric field at comet 67P?

Mmmmmm....how-particle-accelerators-work

Sol88's usual utter insanity !
We have seen dust being ejected from asteroids before from the Earth. This is

The reason we see plumes is obvious and stated in the article. The surface is rough and covered with boulders which restricts the escape of dust.

Sol88's usual insane lies:
Comet 67P has plenty of ices, up to 16% of its mass is ices .
There are no plumes of dust. There are cometary jets of dust and gas.
We have images of jets coming from inside pits. We have traced jets to the pits, fractured cliffs and icy/dusty plains.
