NASA Intends To Take A Better Look At Uranus Than We Have Ever Gotten
NASA announced that they are intending to take a better look at Uranus than before, as they have not paid attention to Uranus until now.
The gas is what they are interested in. NASA intends to carry on four missions to both Neptune and Uranus. These missions, which will probably happen in 2030, will be of great scientific importance.
The idea of these missions is to find out what Uranus and Neptune are made of, to study their overall climate and weather, and to determine their atmospheric composition.
The first mission includes three orbiters to Neptune or Uranus and this probe is intended to provide information about all aspects of the system, including magnetosphere, atmosphere, satellite, and rings of the planet.
Another mission includes fly-bys of Uranus and this probe with a narrow-angle camera is intended to work out the levels of heavy elements and gas of Uranus.
On 24th January 1986, Voyager 2 flew closely past Uranus (81.500 kilometers) and radioed numerous pictures and other data on Uranus, its rings, moons, interior, and atmosphere.
Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft have flown to Jupiter in 1979, Saturn in 1981, Uranus in 1986, and Neptune in 1989. Both spacecraft have revealed data on the varying part of the planets, and have also found out 10 unseen moons.
The rings system of the planets was studied out with many instruments, which detected the previously known rings and two newly found rings. 17 hours, 14 minutes is the rate of rotation of the planets.
Even though these proposed missions are a long way from reality, NASA claims that the Uranus trip will be feasible through 2030 – 2036, and the Neptune mission is intended to take place before.
