Fig. 3


Parameter space where stellar fly-bys lead to DPS sizes of 6 AU or smaller. The black line shows the case of a coplanar event, and the red line the case when it is averaged over all possible orientations between the plane of the DPS and the fly-by plane. In both cases, a parabolic orbit was assumed.
