Collision of Uranus Could Explain Two Other Oddities About Tilted Planet

A new study has found out that the collision of Uranus could have led to the planet’s extreme tilt and other odd attributes. [Uranus is so weird because of a massive collision billions of years ago]. “All of the planets in the solar system are spinning more or less in the same way … yet Uranus is completely on its side,” Jacob Kegerreis, the new study’s lead author and a researcher at Durham University’s Institute for Computational Cosmology in the U.K., says.

What If Other Planets Were as Close as the Moon?

What If Other Planets Were as Close as the Moon?

Have you ever thought about to see one of the 8 planets instead of Moon? In this creative video you can imagine how big the planets are in our Solar System. The Moon’s average orbital distance is 384,402 km (238,856 mi), or 1.28 light-seconds. This is about thirty times the diameter of Earth. The satellite’s apparent size in the sky is almost the same as that of the Sun (because it is 400x farther and larger).

Scientists Reveal the Sound of Space That Is Really Terrifying

The sound of space is truly strange. The sound of Earth! “It’s called chorus,” explains Craig Kletzing of the University of Iowa.  “This is one of the clearest examples we’ve ever heard”. The Researcher explains the sound of Earth. “This is what the radiation belts would sound like to a human being if we had radio antennas for ears,” says Kletzing, whose team at the University of Iowa built the “EMFISIS” (Electric and Magnetic Field Instrument Suite and Integrated Science) receiver used to pick up the signals.

Ceres Was the First Asteroid to Be Discovered

Ceres Was the First Asteroid to Be Discovered

Ceres is considered as the first asteroid that was discovered in 1801. It is sometimes assumed that Ceres has been reclassified as a dwarf planet, and that it is therefore no longer considered an asteroid. For example, a news update at Space.com spoke of “Pallas, the largest asteroid, and Ceres, the dwarf planet formerly classified as an asteroid”, whereas an IAU question-and-answer posting states, “Ceres is the largest asteroid”. So, according at the point of view of Space.com Ceres is a dwarf planet that is considered as the smallest and closest one.

We are Introducing You the First Earth Picture in Comparison with Last Erath Picture

We are Introducing You First Earth Picture in Comparison with Last Erath Picture

The first Earth Picture is very different from the last picture of Earth: the dissimilarities are really noticeable. The First Earth picture was taken on March 7, 1947. It was the time when a group of soldiers and scientists in the New Mexico desert saw something new and magnificent in these grainy black-and-white-photos: the first Earth picture. It is seen from height greater than 100 miles in space.

Top 10 Known Largest Exoplanets in The Universe

Top 10 Known Largest Exoplanets in The Universe

Planets in the Universe are countless that always need exploring. There are a lot of undiscovered objects in the Universe that it is not enough an entire life for humans to discover almost half of them. As indicated Stephen Hawking “We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special”. As you know the known largest planet in our Solar System is Jupiter, it is approximately 143,000 kilometers (about 89,000 miles) wide at its equator. Let’s find out more about largest exoplanets in our wonderful Universe. These planets are the largest exoplanets ever discovered and it will probably take a long time until astronomers find a bigger one. Accordingly, we suggest you to enjoy top 10 largest exoplanets in the Universe.

The Smell of Uranus is Like Rotten Eggs: NASA Scientists Revealed

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.

5 Dwarf Planets in our Solar System

5 Dwarf Planets In Our Solar System

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.
