Uranus - Scientific Theories and Mysteries

About Uranus, scientific theories for the unexplained mysteries of Uranus including its rings.


Theories and Mysteries: Much about the composition of Uranus remains a mystery. Scientific theory explaining its origin and evolution is linked closely to that of the solar system. In the collapse of the original nebula, much of the material is believed to have flowed inward to form the sun, while some of it remained in orbit. The outer Jovian planets took shape by the accretion of rocky material and ice, and by drawing large amounts of hydrogen and helium from the nebula. Uranus is thought to be composed of a rocky core, perhaps covered by a layer of ices, and enveloped by hydrogen, helium, methane, and ammonia in liquid and gaseous form.
