Fun fact. Uranus could have been called Georgium Sidus in honor of King George III. Or Herschel in honor of planet's discoverer. But finally was chosen Uranus because since Saturn was Jupiter's father, the new planet should be named after Saturn's father.

What is uranus made of


Dear
Uranus is a frozen, gaseous planet. The planet is shrouded in an icy cloud layer (made up of frozen methane, ethane, and acetylene) circling this planet at 185 mph (300 kph. Uranus' icy atmosphere consist of,hydrogen,helium,mithane.
Beneath the atmosphere, there is a liquid layer of hydrogen and helium. As depth increases, this layer becomes more viscous, and then partly solid. This layer may be composed of compressed water with ammonia and methane.
Uranus has a molten rocky core

Thanks.

What is special futures of uranus


Uranus was the first planet to be discovered in modern history. It was actually discovered by accident in 1781 by William Herschel.
Like the other gas giants, Uranus has a very thick cloud cover and an atmosphere made up mostly of hydrogen, helium, methane, and ammonia. The trace amount of methane is what gives Uranus and its twin, Neptune, their blue color. Unlike Saturn and Jupiter, Uranus has a different internal structure.
The core of Uranus is probably composed of liquid rock. Then, farther up, the liquid rock slowly gives way to an ocean made mostly of hydrogen, helium, and water, with small amounts of ammonia and methane. This "ocean" accounts for most of Uranus's bulk. Then, the water slowly thins out into the bland, almost featureless atmosphere.
Uranus also has a system of about 11 rings - not nearly as large as Saturn's. Nine were found when Uranus passed in front of a bright star, the rings causing the star to temporarily disappear when they passed in front of it. This was the first time astronomers had detected rings around any planet other than Saturn. It was the first time, also, that astronomers had detected thin rings around any planet. The other two rings were found when Voyager 2 passed by.
Uranus also has 27 known moons, most of which little is known about.

Uranus has two main unique features. First, there is absolutely no detail in the cloud cover. Only when pushed to the maximum level of color enhancement and contrast on computers do scientists start to see small swirls in the atmosphere.

For 21 years, Uranus's moons are seen as one would view a dart board, with one pole facing the sun. The next 21 years Uranus has its side to the sun, and the moons move up and down across the equator. then the cycle repeats itself starting with the other pole. Scientists aren't sure why this is, but they think that a large body smashed into it with such force that it pushed the planet over.
Mythology
Uranus was named for the ancient Greek god of the heavens. When Earth was first made, Uranus was the first thing she saw, and they fell in love.
