In a new study, the scientist was stunned with new knowledge about the seventh planet of our solar system, Uranus. The planet smells of farts and rotten eggs Researchers believe that the bad smell on the planet is due to the presence of hydrogen sulfide clouds is caused in the Uranus atmosphere.
A group of researchers from Oxford University, who are associated with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, have discovered the foul-smelling hydrogen sulfide in the clouds, or Uranus, using the near-infrared integral-Fi field spectrometer (NIFS) at the the Gemini North Telescope is connected in Hawaii. Co-author of the study Patrick Irwin said that if an unfortunate or unhappy person ever came through the clouds of Uranus, they would be hit with very unpleasant conditions.
It is known that hydrogen sulfide is a compound that has an annoying rotten egg odor. So you can imagine how bad the Uranus could smell, since most of its upper atmosphere is covered with hydrogen sulphide.
The scientists were enthusiastic about the discovery of hydrogen sulphide in the atmosphere of Uranus and hope that this discovery will help them understand the mysteries of the universe. Researcher Leigh Fletcher said: "Gemini's superior skills finally gave us this happy break." He said that only a tiny amount of hydrogen sulfide remains as saturated vapor above the clouds. The scientists in the latest study reported that the Gemini telescope detected between 0.4 and 0.8 ppm of hydrogen sulfide as ice in the cloud layer of Uranus.
According to the Oxford researchers, enough hydrogen sulfide is present to give off the lazy smell, people will not be able to smell the gas. Irwin said that exposure and suffocation in the negative atmosphere of 200 degrees Celsius (minus 328 degrees Fahrenheit), which mainly consists of hydrogen, helium, and methane, would take their toll long before the smell. Scientists used to suspect that hydrogen sulfide might be present in Uranus, but this time the Gemini telescope picked up the foul-smelling gas in the clouds of Uranus.
Glenn Orton of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory said, "We strongly suspected hydrogen sulfide gas affected the millimeter and radio spectrum of Uranus for some time, but we could not match the absorption needed to positively identify it Now this part of the puzzle also comes into play. "
Earlier, an investigation found that unlike the magnetosphere, here on Earth, Uranus has a switch-like magnetosphere, thanks to the strange and unusual planetary rotation; claimed a new investigation.
Earth's magnetic field is tightly connected to its axis of rotation, and this causes the entire magnetosphere of the planet, in conjunction with Earth's rotation, to pivot like a spike. Since the same arrangement of the Earth's magnetosphere always remains facing the Sun, in the omnipresent solar wind it contributes to changing the direction of Earth's field configuration from blocked to unlocked. But Uranus is very different from Earth. It lies and rotates on its surface, and its magnetic field is asymmetric, which is off-center and inclined 60 degrees from its axis. And these properties cause the magnetic field of Uranus to stumble obliquely according to the direction of the solar wind and the planet needs nearly 17.24 hours to complete a full turn to the sun.
