Overall disk evolution after the landslide. Gray particles represent member particles of the top-shaped primary. Dark-gray particles represent disk particles and member particles of gravitational clumps (including the formed moon at later epochs). The black circle indicates the Roche limit of the primary (r R ∼ 2.5R c, where R c = 500 m is used).
