New Images Reveal Clouds on Planet Uranus (http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/uranus_images_041110.html)


New images of the planet Uranus reveal more diversity in cloud features than ever seen before.

The new images, from the Keck Telescope in Hawaii, provide insight into some of the most enigmatic weather in the solar system, researchers said today at a meeting of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society.

The planet Uranus probably should be renamed. :-?

The planet Uranus probably should be renamed. :-?But then where will we get our snickers from in the early grades when we learn about the planets?

Not to mention all the tv & movie jokes made at the expense of such an innocent planet (no wonder it's upside down :) ). I saw part of ET (movie) a week ago and they used it there. :roll:

I remember being disappointed when Voyager 2 swept past that there were no spots on Uranus.

When I block the spyware, Ad Avenue Inc. All I get is a black page which refuses to load further. (A common trick of Ad Avenue Inc. BTW) Normaly I can work around by right clicking, view source, and picking up the image URL that way but I can't seem to find it burried in the HTML. Are there any other workarounds (PLEASE don't make me use Netscape!)

Edit: Eventually found this (http://www.space.com/images/041110_uranus_images_00.jpg) but the images are quite small.

I'll guess that it's because all images of the planet Uranus reveal clouds?

And on the other one, I also figured it was the redundancy of "underground aquifers".

Everybody does realize that ToSeek doesn't compose most of the headlines he lists, right? My favorite headline (from the "never thought there'd be time to print it" department) was from a Tucson paper announcing - on page 2, no less - "Missiles headed for West Germany". Right up there with one I clipped in the UK: "TV Body Fears Eclipse". And the British were thought to have gotten beyond that sor of superstition...
