VIVA – Astronomers detect mysterious X-rays coming out of the Planet Uranus for the first time. They saw that Uranus was so large it could be that the X-rays released by the Sun were scattered over a distance of more than a billion miles.
Another possibility is that the fine ring of dust surrounding Uranus produces their own radiation through an unknown process. A closer study of Uranus is needed to know with certainty about the phenomenon, according to the website Live Science, Thursday, April 8, 2021.
This planet before Neptune had cold, windy conditions and was made almost entirely of ice and gas. Despite its enormous size, Uranus is difficult to study in depth. Only one spacecraft, the Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Voyager 2, has ever made the dangerous journey to the planet.
