  • A suite of high-resolution N-body simulations of the Magellanic Clouds–Milky Way system are presented and compared directly with newly available data from the H i Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS). We show that the interaction between Small Magellanic Clouds (SMC) and Large Magellanic Clouds results in both a spatial and kinematical bifurcation of both the stream and the leading arm. The spatial bifurcation of the stream is readily apparent in the HIPASS data, and the kinematical bifurcation is… CONTINUE READING
