What percent larger is Uranus than Earth?
Uranus has a volume which is about 63 times the volume of Earth which means that 63 Earths can fit inside Uranus.
Is Uranus 3 times bigger than Earth?
Uranus is about four times wider than Earth.
How would you compare Uranus to Earth?
Uranus/Ariel – Earth/Moon Size Comparison Uranus is approximately 31,000 miles (50,000 kilometers) in diameter, or about four times the size of Earth. The Earth is approximately 7,900 miles (12,800 kilometers) in diameter, or about four times the diameter of the Moon, 2,100 miles (3,500 kilometers).
How much longer is a year on Uranus compared to Earth?
One year on Uranus is 84.0205 Earth years, or 30,688.5 Earth days. One day on Uranus is 17 hours and 14 minutes long. There are 42,718 Uranian days in a Uranian year.
How is Uranus blue?
The blue-green color results from the absorption of red light by methane gas in Uranus’ deep, cold and remarkably clear atmosphere. In fact, the limb is dark and uniform in color around the planet.
Is Uranus the biggest planet?
Uranus, the third largest planet in our solar system, may be the strangest because it spins on its side. As the seventh planet from the Sun, Uranus takes 84 years to complete an orbit.
Does Uranus rain diamonds NASA?
Deep within Neptune and Uranus, it rains diamonds—or so astronomers and physicists have suspected for nearly 40 years. The outer planets of our Solar System are hard to study, however. Only a single space mission, Voyager 2, has flown by to reveal some of their secrets, so diamond rain has remained only a hypothesis.
What would happen if you fell into Uranus?
Uranus is a ball of ice and gas, so you can’t really say that it has a surface. If you tried to land a spacecraft on Uranus, it would just sink down through the upper atmosphere of hydrogen and helium, and into the liquid icy center. And this is why the surface of Uranus has its color.

How long is a day on Pluto?
6.4 Earth days
On approach in July 2015, the cameras on NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft captured Pluto rotating over the course of a full “Pluto day.” The best available images of each side of Pluto taken during approach have been combined to create this view of a full rotation. Pluto’s day is 6.4 Earth days long.
What planet is green?
Uranus is blue-green in color, as a result of the methane in its mostly hydrogen-helium atmosphere. The planet is often dubbed an ice giant, since at least 80% of its mass is a fluid mix of water, methane and ammonia ice.
