Collision snapshots. In the right top corner we indicate the timespan into the simulation for each frame. The collision itself occurs at a time stamp of 234 min. For better visibility of the inside structure we cut open the two Ceres-mass bodies along the z = 0 symmetry plane. Basalt is plotted in red, water ice in blue.
