NASA scientists discovered that the smell of Uranus is extremely bad like rotten eggs. Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun that has the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in the Solar System. Uranus’s mass is roughly 14.5 times that of Earth, and its structure consists of three layers: a rocky core in the center, an icy mantle in the middle and an outer gaseous hydrogen/helium envelope. Finally, scientists discovered “one critical secret” in the composition of its clouds – the smell of Uranus, which is not a pleasant discovery. The smell of Uranus is extremely bad like rotten eggs due to the planet’s cloud tops containing hydrogen sulfide which is an odiferous gas.
Dwarf planets in our Solar System are Pluto, Eris, Haumea, Makemake and Ceres. It is estimated that there are more than 200 dwarf planets in the Kuiper belt of the outer Solar System and possibly more than 10,000 in the region beyond. A dwarf planet is a planetary-mass object that is neither a planet nor a natural satellite. It is a body orbiting the Sun that is big enough to round itself by its own gravity, but has not cleared its orbital path of other rival bodies. So let’s discover which ones are 5 dwarf planets in our solar system.
Eris dwarf planet is the most massive and second-largest dwarf planet in the known Solar System. Eris was discovered on October 21, 2003 by M.E. Brown, C.A. Trujillo, and D. Rabinowitz at the Palomar Observatory. It is named for the ancient Greek goddess of discord and strife. The name fits since Eris remains at the center of a scientific debate about the definition of a planet. As stated NASA “Eris first appeared to be larger than Pluto. This triggered a debate in the scientific community that led to the International Astronomical Union’s decision in 2006 to clarify the definition of a planet.
There are millions of asteroids from which some of them is dangerous uniquely. A potentially hazardous object (PHO) is a near-Earth object with an orbit that has the potential to make exceptionally close approaches to the Earth. It is also of a size large enough to cause significant regional damage in the event of impact. Astronomers indicate that between 37,000 and 78,000 tons of solar system debris hit Earth each single year. Fortunately, they usually rain down in tiny pieces that burn up in the atmosphere. Now, we’d like to call you attention introducing top 10 dangerous asteroids.
Sweden announces about first vehicle-charging electrified road. Owing to the technology that is called the conductive charging it works by recharging the electrical batteries of vehicles as they drive along the road. The 1.2-mile-long stretch of electrified road was developed by eRoadArlanda – a consortium including vehicle manufacturer DAF, property developers, technology companies and academic institutions.
Tourists like to visit those places where is cultural value, historical significance, natural or built beauty, offering leisure and amusement. This post is for tourists that do not know where to go to enjoy their leisure time. Here is top 10 most visited countries where tourists prefer to visit.
Virgin Galactic launched its first rocket Spaceship after a fatal crash in 2014. Virgin Galactic is a spaceflight company within the Virgin Group. It is developing commercial spacecraft and aims to provide suborbital spaceflights to space tourists and suborbital launches for space science missions. Virgin Galactic plans to provide orbital human spaceflights as well. SpaceShipTwo is air launched from beneath a carrier airplane known as White Knight Two. The founder of Galactic, Sir Richard Branson, had said that he hoped to see the first flight by the end of 2009, but this date has been delayed on a number of reasons, most recently by the October 2014 in-flight loss of SpaceShipTwo VSS Enterprise.
A volcano is a mountain that opens downhill to a reservoir of molten rock below the surface of the earth. When pressure from gases within the molten rock becomes too great, an eruption occurs. Eruptions can be quiet or explosive. There may be lava flows, flattened landscapes, poisonous gases, and flying rock and ash that can sometimes travel hundreds of miles downwind. Now, we are continuing our range of tops, and this time it is about dangerous volcanos. Below we are going to touch upon your attention introducing top 10 dangerous volcanos.
An exoplanet or extrasolar planet is a planet outside our solar system that orbits a star. This is a list of habitable exoplanets and possible exoplanets. We are introducing you top 10 potentially habitable exoplanets, that is based on estimates of habitability by the habitable exoplanets catalog (HEC), and data from the NASA Exoplanet Archive. The HEC is maintained by the Planetary Habitability Laboratory at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo.
