In mantle grey from bough to bough!

A scripture bright in great woods now.

Fast fading from our wistful gaze;

The last faint pulse of quivering light.

She sat, and watched the wicket-gate,
Not timid in her woman's throne,
Nor lonely in her sinless state,
Though all alone;

Up from the sod to the portals of day
The blithe lark is soaring—carolling free,
Musical spirit o'erflowing with glee.

She own'd herself his bride.

In science:

We assume that, during GJ 1214b’s formation, the primordial rocky material differentiated to form an iron core and silicate mantle in the planet.
Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b
The core and mantle are combined together on a single axis, with the vertical distance from the upper vertex determined by the fraction of the planet’s mass in the two innermost planet layers.
Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b
The H/He mass fraction has a spread in this case due to the range of possible core-to-mantle mass ratios.
Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b
The fractions of the planet’s mass in the Fe core, the Mg0.9Fe0.1 SiO3 silicate mantle, and the water vapor envelope are plotted on the three axes.
Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b
Fig. 5.— GJ 1214b as a rocky planet with an outgassed atmosphere. A three-layered planet structure composed of an iron core, silicate mantle, and pure hydrogen envelope is assumed.
Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b
Any mass not in the hydrogen envelope or iron core is contained in the silicate mantle; the dashed black lines represent contours of constant mantle mass fraction.
Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b
In contrast, a higher iron content in the mantle would increase the density of the planet interior, requiring a higher mass fraction of gas.
Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b
Moreover, Butler & Tan (2009) found some evidence for dust opacity changes within IRDCs, which could be caused by ice mantle formation and grain growth.
LABOCA mapping of the infrared dark cloud MSXDC G304.74+01.32
Thus, e.g., the molten silicates of the earth’s upper mantle are predicted to be simpler than molten silicates at ambient pressure.
What constitutes a simple liquid?
In a very real (though approximate) sense, the subsonic inner core and shocked mantle together execute a coherent harmonic oscillation that is near-critically damped.
Perspectives on Core-Collapse Supernova Theory
If there were no accretion, neutrino heating would explode the proto-neutron star mantle immediately.
Perspectives on Core-Collapse Supernova Theory
Neutrino heating in the shocked mantle exterior to the neutrinospheres is probably the foremost driver of convection (Burrows, Dolence, & Murphy 2012; Murphy et al. 2012).
Perspectives on Core-Collapse Supernova Theory
The neutrino energy emitted from the core and absorbed in the proto-neutron star mantle that is required for the neutrino-powered model has its origin in compressive work on the matter of the core by gravitational forces.
Perspectives on Core-Collapse Supernova Theory
However, in a fundamental sense, core-collapse supernova involve the transfer of energy from the core to the mantle, leaving the core behind.
Perspectives on Core-Collapse Supernova Theory
This mantle may start near ∼100 km, not the canonical radius of ∼10 km, and hence is much less bound.
