Get ready to access the giggly, 14-year-old sense of humor you’ve still got buried somewhere deep. Because this sounds ridiculous, but it’s 100% true!) . SCIENCE!! Researchers have finally confirmed that URANUS smells like farts. Knew It . Called It.
Astronomers have always wondered what the atmosphere around the planet Uranus is made of. And a team of researchers just figured out it contains hydrogen sulfide . . . Just like your uncle. It’s the same thing that gives rotten eggs that gassy smell.
It’s important, because it could help them figure out how other planets in the solar system formed. But obviously the only thing WE really care about is that if anyone ever gets too close to Uranus . . . they might want to hold their breath.
