Uranus, the first planet that was discovered in modern times, since it was never visible from Planet Earth with the naked eye, smells of farts and rotten eggs. Although the seventh planet of our system (if you spoke of the distance from the Sun) was said to be visible to the naked eye, it was never recognized as a planet by ancient observers because of its comparatively very slow darkness and orbit. Researchers at the University of Oxford used IR (infrared) from Uranus captured by the Gemini North telescope placed in Hawaii to see that the upper layers of Uranus' atmosphere are dominated by hydrogen sulfide, a toxic gas that smells of lumpy eggs or gas . and it is often similar to your man gas discharge.
Uranus is the ancient Greek deity of the Heavens, the first supreme god. Uranus was the son and companion of Gaia the father of Saturn (Cronus) and of the Cyclops and Titans (who were predecessors of the Olympian gods).
This discovery was made and published by principal investigator Patrick Irwin in the April 23 issue of Nature Astronomy. "If an unfortunate person ever went down through the clouds of Uranus, he would be welcomed by very unpleasant and unpleasant conditions," said Irwin.
Uranus' atmosphere ranges from 83% hydrogen, 15% helium and 2% methane. The blue color of Uranus is the result of the absorption of red light by methane in the upper atmosphere. There may be some strips of colors like those of Jupiter, but they are hidden from view by the layer of methane that wobbles and overlaps.
The planet is often called an ice giant because 80% of its mass develops from a collective fluid mixture of water. Methane and ammonia ice cream.
Researchers have been analyzing sulfur in the main body of clouds for quite some time, "adds Oxford principal investigator Patrick Irwin," this means that on Uranus, and possibly Neptune, hydrogen sulfide is more abundant than Nitrogen This discovery imposes a powerful limitation on how planets were formed. "
Researchers have been analyzing the components that shape the upper layers of the planet's climate for a long time, since they have no confirmation, and in any case, the new perception has changed this:" We have judged the proximity of sulfur of hydrogen on the fundamental variety of mists, "said Oxford's chief scientist, Patrick Irwin," this implies in Uranus, and perhaps in Neptune, hydrogen sulfide is more abundant. "than nitrogen.
This revelation it forces an effective confinement on the shape of the planets. "This is partially unacceptable by planetary migration, which tells astronomers about the presence of giant planets near their sun.
Be that as it may, the nauseating stench would not be the most frightening of what Irwin indicates. "Choking and being present in the negative air at 200 degrees Celsius made mostly of hydrogen, helium and methane would inflict significant damage long before the smell," Irwin said.
This unusual high inclination of Uranus gives rise to extreme seasons of approximately 20 years, indicating that almost every quarter of the Uranian year equals 84 Earth years, the sun shines directly on each pole of the planet, leaving the other half of the planet to face a long, dark and cold winter.
Proof of the closeness of hydrogen sulfide gives an answer to researchers who have long talked about the synthesis of mists. Some star watchers were confident that the gas was hydrogen sulfide, others said it was probably alkaline.
Scientists reflect on whether the mists are dominated by ice or even alkalis, such as Saturn or Jupiter. It is difficult to find the correct solution, as it tries to mention an objective fact and obtain the required points of interest about Uranus removed.
Uranus contains the coldest atmosphere of any of the planets in our solar system, although it is not the most distant from the sun. That's because Uranus possesses little or no internal heat to supplement the sun's heat.
Other unusual weather conditions on Uranus include the diamond rain, which is expected to fall thousands of miles below the surface of the planet. It is said that carbon and hydrogen are compressed under such deep heat and pressure in Uranus' atmosphere to form diamonds, which are then supposed to sink downward, eventually deepening around the planet's nuclei and settling there.
