Artists impression of Voyager 2 at Uranus

Travelling at more than 64, 000 km/hr, Voyager 2 is less than 6 hours from closest approach to the planet Uranus, on 24/Jan/86, in this artwork by Julian Baum. The planets atmosphere consists mainly of hydrogen, helium and methane and has a characteristic greenish hue. Uranus is unique in that its equator, along with its moons and tenuous ring system, is tilted at 98 degrees to the plane of the Solar System, which means that in alternate seasons the poles and the equator will in turn face the Sun. Uranus orbits the Sun once in 84 years and, at present, the planets south pole faces the Sun, in the midst of a 21 year long summer

Exploration Interstellar Mission Planetary Space Art Space Craft Uranus Voyager Voyager 2


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an artist's impression of Voyager 2 as it approaches the enigmatic planet Uranus. Racing through space at a staggering speed of over 64,000 km/hr, the spacecraft is merely hours away from its closest encounter with this distant celestial body on January 24th, 1986. Created by the talented Julian Baum, this artwork beautifully captures the essence of Uranus. The atmosphere surrounding Uranus predominantly consists of hydrogen, helium, and methane gases, resulting in its distinctive greenish hue. However, what sets Uranus apart is its peculiar tilt; not only is its equator slanted at a remarkable angle of 98 degrees to the plane of our Solar System but also its moons and delicate ring system share this unique orientation. Consequently, during alternating seasons, both poles and the equator take turns facing towards or away from the Sun. Uranus completes one orbit around our star every 84 years. Presently experiencing a prolonged summer lasting for two decades due to its south pole being sunward-facing. This extraordinary interstellar mission conducted by Voyager 2 has provided us with invaluable insights into this mysterious gas giant. Immerse yourself in this mesmerizing depiction that combines elements of research, exploration, planetary science along with awe-inspiring space art courtesy of Science Photo Library's collection.
