The planet Uranus has strange phenomena and fractured terrain

A recent study conducted on the planet Uranus, one of the planets of the solar system in the Milky Way, revealed that the planet has strange phenomena that must be carefully studied and examined.

The most prominent phenomenon of the planet far from Earth was that it has 27 moons, the smallest and closest to the planet is called “Miranda”, and its diameter is less than 500 km.

And international media revealed that the surface of the Miranda moon is unusual and attracts the attention of researchers, as it is characterized by the fact that it contains areas with a geological mixture of fractured terrain to the extent that one might think that Miranda is composed of pieces stuck together, and this adhesion appears inconsistent.

In a recent study published in The Planetary Science Journal, two researchers led by the Carl Sagan Center at the SETI Institute in California investigated the possible origin of regolith deposits, or rocky debris, on Uranus’ moon Miranda.

The regolith is defined as a heterogeneous layer that covers rocks and consists of dust, dirt, and thick fractured rocks. The surface material on both the Moon and Mars is usually referred to as rigolith or rhyolite, in contrast to the soil on Earth, as the soil provides nutrients and minerals necessary for growth, while it can Considering regolith as dead soil.

The purpose of this study was to determine Miranda’s internal structure, and in particular its internal temperature, which could help determine whether Miranda harbors an internal ocean.

“It is unlikely that Miranda could hold a subterranean ocean to this day because of its small size,” said Dr. Chloe Bedingfield, a scientist at NASA Ames Research Center. “However, the thick regolith layer would act like an insulating blanket, trapping heat inside Miranda and enhancing “Longevity of the subsurface ocean for some time. This trapped heat would also promote internal activity for longer periods of time in Miranda, such as the geological activity that formed one or more Miranda coronas or the global rift system.”
