As per a new research the planet Uranus is claimed to be a stinky one and it stinks as bad as rotten eggs.
In the journal of Natural Astronomy, it was published that the study revealed that the seventh planet of our solar system—Uranus is surrounded by a colourless gas hydrogen sulphide (H2S), resulting in the planet to smell like that of rotten eggs as per the reports of Time.
The data was found using observations from an instrument Near-Infrared Integral Field Spectrometer (NIFS) at the Gemini North observatory in Hawaii. The observatory is a high-power telescope present on top of a Hawaiian volcano.
The stinking-pungent kind of gas was discovered to be present at the top of the planet’s clouds. BBC quoted the study of Patrick Irwin that if any unlucky human was ever to go through the cloud of the planet, he/she would be met with very stinky and pungent conditions.
Researchers are of the belief that the new finding of the hydrogen sulphide presence may assist in putting together the story of how our solar system was created and arranged itself some many years ago.
Uranus is the 7th planet from the sun and has got the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in the solar system. It is very much like Neptune in composition. It has got the coldest planetary atmosphere with a minimum temperature of −224 °C. It is the only planet whose name has been derived from a Greek mythology figure—Ouranos.
