What You Did Not Know About Planet Uranus
One can acquire a lot of knowledge about the discovered facts about the universe. The discovery of the planets alone and exploration tours by satellites and distant observation using a telescope has offered so much knowledge to human about the space. So much information has been acquired about the space such that one can have so many details about a planet such as the Uranus. It is a cool space fact that Uranus is the seventh furthest planet from the sun. It is also a cool space fact that the planet earth is third with mercury being the first and Venus the second. Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn tend to come in between the earth and Uranus. Among the reasons that made it too long to discover the planet Uranus is due to the fact that it is not only dim but also tend to take to love before revolving around the sun. It is the first planet that was discovered using a telescope. Due to its 98 degrees inclination, it tends to be described as a planet that rolls around the sun on its side.
One would also need to note the fact that Uranus has a polar diameter of 49,946 km, a mass of 8.68 x 10^25 kg (15 Earths) and an equatorial diameter of 51,118 km. It is also known to have moons such as Umbriel, Oberon, and Titania. It is also a fact that the temperatures in planet mars tend to go as low as -216 ?C. Among other facts about the planet Uranus include an orbit period of 30,687 days (84.0 years) and an orbit distance of 2,870,658,186 km (19.19 AU). It is also a fact that the name Uranus comes from a Greece deity known as Ouranos.
One part of the planet Uranus tend to point on the sun for about 42 years while it tends to be exposed to darkness for another 42 years. It is also a fact that the planet Uranus also tend to be known for its pale blue color which is resultant of water on its upper atmosphere as well as ammonia and methane ice crystals. It is also a fact that Uranus also tend to poses hydrogen that is also mixed with helium and a mixture of ice and rock at the mantle.
Compared to other planets, Uranus tend to hit the lowest temperature range. It is known to hit temperatures as low as -224?C making it nearly the coldest planet in the entire solar system. However, one would need to note that Neptune tend to be colder on average although its temperatures do not sink as low as -224?C. The moons such as Oberon, Miranda, and Titania tend to be frozen all with dark surfaces some formed of a mixture of rocks and ice. It is also a fact that Uranus has had one spacecraft take close range images displaying details about its moons as well as its rings.
