The universe is one place that holds curiosity for every one of us. We are all fascinated by its elements, and mystic beauty and have always questioned them.
The depths of space are really an interesting thing to know about and so are our planets. I have always wondered about the atmospheres in different planets and this curiosity led me to dive deep into so many facts about the universe that I couldn’t stop myself from writing this article. So, tighten your seatbelts and hop onto this cosmic ride!!
Facts About the Cosmos
- The footsteps on the moon will stay for 100 million years because it has no atmosphere, no wind to sweep the surface and no water to wash away the footprints.
- The next Halley’s comet will be seen flaunting off its beauty from the earth in the year 2061
- There is utter silence in the universe, because of null atmosphere there is no medium for the sound to travel.
Planets and their Atmosphere
As much as the universe is special, its elements are super special, with millions of stars, galaxies, and planets, let’s explore what our beloved planets carry with themselves.
This yellow white planet carries a whole bundle of clouds that are made up of Sulphur Dioxide and Carbon Dioxide and give out a formation of Opaque Cloud Sheets.
Mars tends to float the clouds that are made up of water and ice. It lets them glide on the level surface. Forming a thin scattered cloud similar to Cirrocumulus.
Neptune and Uranus
No, they’re not brothers or sisters as such. But yes! they do share a common gas that is Methane and the clouds are born through the same gas. And their formation is highly wispy.
Jupiter and Saturn
Multicolored cloud bands can be seen on these both planets. Due to large velocity, turbulent whirlpools are created and the most notable Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is the outcome of such eddies. The bright zones are the clouds in the cold upper atmosphere and colorful bands correspond to warm lower atmosphere.
