67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. A Single Body That’s Been Stretched- Part 19.

JUST RELEASED BY ESA- SOUTH POLE MATCHES ILLUMINATED FOR THE FIRST TIME. 

 

The first photo to show the south pole of 67P with both head rim and body rim illuminated shows matches between the two. As usual, this comes as no surprise at all in stretch theory. No need for the usual long explanations. The header photo says it all.

This means that matches have now been made all the way around the perimeter of both lobes except at missing slab A, where they are expected not to be present. Doubtless, more detailed ones will be found between the others but any new matches are purely academic. 

This brief post has kicked Part 18 off the top, which was there for only a couple of days. Part 18 is a more interesting post with another displaced rock, a structure running from head to body and a shear line jump between strata.
