Headline Of The Year: Uranus Reeks Of Rotten Eggs

It's true! Science has confirmed Uranus reeks of the smell of rotten eggs. According to an article at DailyMail.com, scientists have confirmed that "if humans ever make it to Uranus, they're in for an unpleasant experience."

I am NOT making this up. Apparently Uranus doesn't smell very good. 

This is due to the presence of hydrogen sulfide, which carries the very distinctive smell of rotten eggs. The article goes on to say that if a human were to ever land on Uranus, it would be a terrible and deadly experience. 

I was facinated to learn that the study of Uranus was being conducted by scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. 

I think, for me, one of the more troubling items gleaned from the article is that scientists have been analyzing infrared light from Uranus using a giant telescope in Hawaii. 

That's it from The Road Show Science Desk. Now back to our regularly scheduled broadcast!
