The seventh planet from the Sun, Uranus is a very distant land that has not really revealed its secrets. Recently, astronomers have thus discovered that this snow-covered planet emits X-rays. A discovery confirmed the publication of an article and, above all, by a NASA press release.
In fact, it was the lunar visionary who made such a discovery. Little wonder, even though X-rays have been discovered on absolutely all planets in our solar system, except Uranus and Neuron. This is enough to allow scientists to learn more about this very esoteric planet.
X-rays emitted by Uranus, discovered
It remains to determine the origin of these X-rays. Uranus rings may also be responsible for these X-ray emissions.
A rich and amazing planet
Indeed, the planet is surrounded by particles such as electrons and protons, which when exposed to its rings, can produce rays. Composed of 83% hydrogen, 15% helium, and 2% methane, Uranus was flown only once in 1986 by the Vyzer 2 probe.
