FIGURE 18.10.1.- Diagram of the formation of a croup of bodies. Infalling gas is stopped and ionized at different distances from the central body The two regions in the figure may receive plasma simultaneously or during different epochs. Condensation of the plasma is rapid during the total infall period. Condensed grains are collected in jet streams which increase their mass during the whole infall period. Grains are stored in the jet streams as single particles and embryos (often for a lone period of time) until they are finally accreted by the largest embryo. In each region of plasma infall, 3-5 bodies are formed.
