The reverse cumulative histograms of the number of encounters with the tidal impact parameter (10) greater than the given one, for all seven runs of Moetazedian & Just (2016). We consider the encounters with Mtid> 108M (black) and Mtid> 109M (blue) before applying the rescaling. The red arrow marks the position of the Aq-D2 encounter used in simulations with one satellite and it is the 5th encounter from the right hand-side of the upper cumulative line. The satellite with the highest impact (~ 0.4) has a mass 1.1 × 108M and comes as close as 0.25 kpc to the centre.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
