Uranus smells like farts and rotten eggs

Researchers studied Uranus using a giant telescope in Hawaii known as Gemini North. "And this is why it is so challenging to capture the signatures of ammonia and hydrogen sulfide above cloud decks of Uranus".

The Article from Hydrogen Sulfide makes Uranus smell like Rotten Eggs.

"While the lines we were trying to detect were just barely there, we were able to detect them unambiguously thanks to the sensitivity of NIFS on Gemini, combined with the exquisite conditions on Mauna Kea", said lead author Patrick Irwin of the University of Oxford, U.K. The answer was so helpful, as it was tough to make observations with detail on the Uranus. "Only a tiny amount remains above the clouds as a saturated vapor", researcher Leigh Fletcher said.

The atmosphere composition of the Uranus has been a topic of research for scientists for a long time. Scientists previously suspected that hydrogen sulfide might be present in Uranus but this time, the Gemini telescope captured the foul-smelling gas in Uranus' clouds. The long-sought evidence was published in the April 23rd issue of the journal Nature Astronomy.

Uranus is the third largest planet in our solar system behind Jupiter and Saturn, and the seventh planet out from the sun. Some astronomers believed the gas was hydrogen sulfide, others said it was likely ammonia.

If a person was unfortunate enough to penetrate Uranus' atmosphere, it would be very unpleasant - not because of the smell, but because that person would suffocate after being exposed to the negative 200 degrees Celsius atmosphere made up of mostly hydrogen, helium, and methane. "Now, that part of the puzzle is falling into place as well".
