Spin, orbit, and surface slope evolution for the Squannit-shaped Dimorphos when β = 3 (e = 0.023). (a) Body separation, Euler angles, and body spin of Dimorphos. (b) Slope and surface accelerations on a facet near (ϕ, λ)≈(0° ,45° ). These plots are identical to those of Fig. 1, coming from the same simulation, except they show a longer time duration to highlight how the evolving spin and orbital motion of Dimorphos influences the accelerations felt on the surface. Dimorphos’s NPA rotation (as indicated by the roll and pitch angles or spin about the A and B axes) leads to large increases in the centrifugal and Euler accelerations that are capable of driving large surface slope changes.
