I got rather interested in reading Wikipedia articles on rather basic stuff on other planets in the solar system. Mainly because of the music thread about how weird the ambient EM sounds from Jupiter/Saturn are. I stopped on Uranus for a while because:
1 - Just how completely featureless its surface is. Look at the attached picture. Nothing. Absolutely NOTHING. That's an enormous amount of surface area, and not a single feature. That just seems rather unbelievable. Jupiter has its pale red dot. Saturn has hexgonal poles. Neptune has its own dot and storm. Uranus has its axial tilt and weird rings, sure, but on the surface? Nothing.
2 - The surface gravity is lower than Earths, but the rest of the article keeps saying there's no surface, but does keep saying there's ice/an ocean. I'm curious about whether it's possible to send a probe in.
3 - There's a lot of hints that Uranus is crazy old compared to the rest of the planets. It's like it gives the allure that "It was made by the ancient ones" or something.
4 - The EM field and axial tilt is wack.
It's name is unfortunate, however. It feels like you can't really have any serious discussions about it just because of its name.
