Two of Uranus’ moons may have active oceans according to Voyager 2 data

Uranus, also known as Arun, is the seventh planet in our solar system. Researchers have speculated that two of the 27 moons orbiting Uranus may have active oceans hidden beneath their surfaces. They can send their stuff into space. A team of researchers from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory has performed this analysis. The team believes that one or two of Uranus’s moons are sending plasma particles into its planetary system. These are energetic particles.

To reach this conclusion, the team of researchers used data from the Voyager 2 space probe. The Voyager 2 space probe, launched in 1977, collected information related to ice on Uranus in 1986. Voyager 2 is the only spacecraft in the story that has reached Uranus.

Scientists say the presence of energetic particles in the Uranus system indicates that one or two of its moons may contain an active ocean within. From similar data, scientists have also known in the past that Jupiter’s moon Europa and Saturn’s moon Enceladus are also home to oceans.

Although the team of scientists has not been able to trace the source of the particles, it has definitely given a big clue about the proposed missions for the future. Scientists have long been saying that the outer planets of the solar system should now be explored as well. Space agencies from countries around the world are currently targeting the Moon and Mars, but planets in the outer solar system, such as Saturn and Uranus, may also hold evidence related to the possibility of life.

Anyway, it has been revealed in many studies that the water on earth came from our solar system. Scientists believe that the water may have reached Earth from asteroids that roamed our solar system. Scientists have been studying samples from the asteroid ‘Ryugu’, which has indicated to them that water brought the asteroid to Earth. That is, the presence of water is in our solar system.
