Did Something Massive Smash Into Uranus?


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?


Uranus is an interesting topic, one we must carefully inject ourselves into for fear of mixed results.
