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.

The Largest Moons of Jupiter

In this article we are going to introduce you the largest moons of Jupiter. Jupiter is considered to be the planet of having the largest number of moons in our Solar System. There are 69 known moons of Jupiter, but the most massive or better to say the largest moons of Jupiter are the Galilean four moons. These objects were discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei and Simon Marius which were the first objects found to orbit a body that was neither Earth nor the Sun.

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.

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.
