(Too bad it doesn't smell like chocolate pudding!) When the poop dries, it hardens into a thick disk
. Cow chips actually have some practical uses.
For all solder applications, the small block of Pb-free solder powder and flux is formed into a thick disk
. To clean and de-wet soldering irons, wipe iron tip across the surface and wipe on a damp sponge.
A spectrometer on Spitzer revealed that a thick disk
of warm, micrometer-size dust particles surrounds the star, which has a mass and age similar to that of the sun.
While shrinkage of a thin block is largely affected by fibril angle and permeability of the wood, shrinkage of a thick disk
is done by the factors just mentioned and other factors such as growth stresses, drying temperature, drying stresses, collapse during drying, etc.
Such elongated shapes are common when a thick disk
of gas and dust forms a dense "waist" around a dying star.
Each core had three or four 51-mm (2-in) thick disk
sections available for the test.
"More radiation would be emitted in a direction perpendicular to the thick disk
, rather than along the disk, allowing material to fall in at higher rates," said co-author Niel Brandt, also of Penn State University.
Form into a thick disk
, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill until firm, at least 2 hours.
According to an analysis by Gilmore and his collaborators, that ancient smackdown was the last major collision the Milky Way has endured, and the creation of the thick disk
was the last significant change in the galaxy's structure.
