Hypothesis: ferrovolcanoes could act on young asteroids

Large iron asteroids are thought to be the heavy cores of Earth-like planets that

At first, they were molten, but gradually solidified and formed a hard crust.

Researchers believe that volcanicthe activity on such asteroids continued until they completely froze. Check this hypothesis will allow data from the device Psyche, which in 2022 will go to explore the asteroid belt and study Psyche, a large iron asteroid.

Previously, astronomers from the Southern European Observatorynoticed a rare cosmic phenomenon - the asteroid (6478) Gault spun so hard that the rotation began to destroy it. Because of this, the object acquired the tail, which makes it look like a comet.
