Scientists have been simulating giant impacts into Uranus since the early 1990s
Uranus really is strange
This allowed them to model how a giant impactor would have deposited “material and energy inside Uranus”
Models can’t tell us exactly what happened; it will take a lot more data to fully understand Uranus
Of course, what we really need next is an ambitious robotic mission to explore Uranus
Uranus is truly a mystery. Will humans finally take up the task to explore it?
