Example of angular momentum transfer in the HW1 system. The six frames show the secondary moving through periapsis and gaining angular momentum from the primary’s spin and shape before moving toward an escaping trajectory. The system is shown in the primary’s principal frame with its angular momentum oriented out of the page.
