How Uranus is regarded in astronomy: The Giant Ice Planet

Sitting 2.87 billion kilometers from the Sun, Uranus is the third furthest away- only bettered by Neptune and Pluto. As a consequence, it’s no surprise that its atmosphere is the coldest of all the planets (-370°F/-218°C). This is a gaseous planet and consists mainly of hydrogen and helium. Considering its size, it turns on itself incredibly quickly, with days lasting only 17 hours. In spite of this, it takes around 84 years to complete a singular orbit of the sun!

In mythology it is known as the God of the skies

According to Greek mythology, Uranus is the ruler of all and god of the heavens. With his wife (who also happened to be his mother) Gaia, the Greek goddess of all life, he had many children. His offspring were gods, titans, and monstrous beings, all gifted with unimaginable abilities such as the power to trigger volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

Uranus was overthrown by his children following an attempt to devour them all. He successfully destroyed several of his heirs, but his son Jupiter overpowered him and forced him to regurgitate the children that he had eaten. As a result, he lost his power, and control of the world was divided between his sons, Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto.
