Complex spin state of the primary at the moment of secondary escape for HW1 simulations. The horizontal bars indicate the values of the secondary’s moments of inertia. The x-axis provides both the effective spin rate and effective spin period, with the rate above and the period below in parentheses. The dynamic inertia is normalized by the mass-equivalent sphere inertia and the effective spin period is normalized by 2.33 hr, the disruption period of a 2 g cm−3 object.
