THE STORY OF URANUS By: Nathan Kiehn

The color of Uranus is light blue and has thirteen faint rings and twenty-seven moons.

The size of Uranus is 25,362 km radius and the weight is 8.681 × 10^25 kg.

The location of Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun.

The temperature on Uranus during the day is -193 degrees Celsius and the temperature does not change during the night. The average temperature of Uranus is -216 degrees Celsius.

The surface of Uranus is 15% helium and 5% methane.

Every eighty four Earth years Uranus goes around the sun once.

Also Uranus is named after the Greek of sky who was the father of Kronos.

This person is named William Hershel he discovered Uranus on March 13, 1781.

The Voyager 2 spacecraft was launched on Aug 20, 1977 and it reached Uranus on Jan 24 1986. So, Voyager 2 took almost nine and a half years to reach Uranus.

There no land forms on Uranus Saturn, Neptune and Uranus are gas planets and have no solid surface. Therefore, they do not have volcanoes.

Some of their moons may have ice volcanoes. Pluto is an icy planet and although we do not have sufficient images of its surface to say for sure, it is unlikely that it has volcanoes because it is too cold.

It is COLD. The surface temperature is about –300° Fahrenheit degrees! There are strong winds, and sometimes cirrus clouds made up of methane ice crystals are seen in the atmosphere.

Space travel would not be possible for humans because the planet is to cold and it is made of gas.

And that is the end of my slide show I hope I liked it peace.
