NASA Wants To Probe Uranus In Search Of Gas


We hear a lot about Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, and that’s because we have extremely fancy hardware floating around and, in some cases, cruising on the surface of those planets. The planets that lie further away from the Sun don’t get nearly as much attention, but they may soon, as NASA is currently spitballing some missions that will give us a better look at Uranus than we’ve ever gotten.


The theoretical missions, which would see NASA spacecraft heading to both Uranus and Neptune, would be of huge scientific benefit.

The idea is to determine what the planets are made of, get an idea of the atmospheric composition, and take lots of fantastic photographs, too.

Researchers hope to study the weather and overall climate of the planets, while determining how they fit into the overall makeup of our Solar System.
