Example text

528. From Lat. 8 Today the term concussion is primarily used in medicine to designate a period of paralysis of nervous function resulting from an injury to the brain which, produced by a violent blow to the head, causes temporal unconsciousness. Concussions of the brain can affect memory, judgment, reflexes, speech, balance and coordination. Many encyclopedias, particularly the older editions, refer to this meaning only. In modern geology, a concussion fracture9 designates one of a system of fractures in individual grains of a shock-metamorphosed rock that is apparently formed by violent grain-to-grain contacts in the initial stages of the passage of a shock wave.

A hypervelocity impact is accompanied by an impact flash. Measurements in several optical, infrared, ultraviolet and even X-ray wavelengths allow astrophysicists to draw conclusions about the kinetic energy of the impact event and possibly about the physical state and nature of the impacted surface {Comet SHOEMAKER-LEVY 9 ⇨1994; Deep Impact Mission ⇨1999; SMART-1 ⇨2003}. Impactflash phenomenology has been known for many years, and 15 H. FAIR: Hypervelocity then and now. 1st High Velocity Impact Symposium (HVIS), [San Antonio, TX, 1986].

Oxford University Press, Oxford (2000), pp. 148-151. 2 GENERAL SURVEY the gaseous one, generating heat and an expanding plasma that carries a shock wave. With the advent of high-power pulsed lasers, a new type of explosion source was discovered: the breakdown of a gas caused by the attenuation of an intense pulse of focused laser light produces a kind of spark, the “laser spark” {LEE & KNYSTAUTAS ⇨1969; ⇨Fig. 11−G}. However, much higher temperatures and shock wave velocities are achievable than in electric sparks or exploding wires.
