Caption: Figure 4.

Location of impact locations for collision cases shown in the body-fixed frame of the Moshup primary. The points are colored by the magnitude of the surface velocity at impact. All secondaries are initialized roughly at the equator as identified by the arrow. The point of maximum extent identifies a bulge on the equatorial ridge that is roughly 20 m further from the center of mass than the rest of the equatorial ridge.
