Enchantment's veil withdraws,
What lovely visions yield their place
To cold material laws!

If war inclined, they both shall find
We're rather tough material.

Can never once behold;
We've doubts, and fears, within that rise,
Of no material mould.

In science:

Note that the sequence with Zac = 0.0130 shows almost no changes in the predicted neutrino fluxes and χ2 values: this value of Zac is nearly equal to the AGSS09 Zini value, so that the accreted material and initial solar material have nearly identical compositions.

However, using round fibres, there is very little scintillating material near the edges of each channel and therefore, in case of very thin detector layers, each event can undergo large fluctuation in the amount of traversed active material.

This should be ascribed to the redistribution process of the specific angular momentum of the NS to the disrupted material and to subsequent behavior of the material (such as collision of the fluid elements in spiral arms).

In other words, the NS material accretes onto the BH coherently even after the tidal disruption, as is shown in the right panel of Fig. 17, because the BH radius is so large that the disrupted material cannot fully cover the BH surface before the BH swallows a large portion of the material.
