Scientists Say That Uranus Does In Fact Smell Like Farts

That’s funny. My Uncle David told me the doctor said the same thing to him last week when he got a colonoscopy.
According to The Science Times, scientists have come to the conclusion that the gas emitted on the planet Uranus smells just like a frat house on a Sunday morning.
The crew at NASA along with other researchers used an array of spectroscopic tests gathered by the Cassini probe and determined that Uranus gas “smells like farts due to its composition of gasses such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, methane, and carbon dioxide.”
“It’s so cold that there’s not much,” Director of the Other Worlds Laboratory at the University of California Jonathan Fortney said. “A lot of the things you’d normally think of as volatile gasses, the smelly ones, have frozen out of the clouds.”
Of course, what Uranus smells like won’t really have an effect on any of us because none of us will ever be setting foot on that big blue ball in our lifetimes. It’s just funny that of all the planets to smell like dropped ass, it’s Uranus. You know, it would be like NASA discovering that Pluto smelled like dog shit.
In the meantime, if being able to smell Uranus gas is something that’s on your bucket list for whatever reason, the good news is that you won’t have to wait until mankind finds a way to get there to cross it off. Seriously, all you have to do is spend five minutes in a West Allis, Wisconsin dive bar to have that dream fulfilled.
