Uranus takes a pounding more frequently than thought

Uranus isn't just gassy, it's also tilted completely sideways, such that instead of rotating like a spinning top, it rolls around the plane of the solar system more like a giant ball. Now astronomers think they know how this happened, and it means that Uranus has been pounded really, really hard not once, but twice.

Before I clicked on this thread, the title took a different meaning for me seeing as I just booked an appointment for a colonoscopy in the near future

I love astronomy; there is always something new and wonderful being discovered. BTW I prefer the original Greek origins for the name of the planet. Ouranos avoids the childish puns connected with the name.

I love Futurama. In one Episode, Fry makes a joke about Uranus, and Professor Farnsworth informs Fry that astronomers changed the name of Uranaus to avoid those silly puns. Fry asks what the new name is. Urectum

Could also be a sign of a faulty check valve?

Can sometimes be remedied with a breather vent. We were getting "burps" of "rust" at work, and the breather pipe solved that problem!

I recommend additionally an HEPA filter for Walt though...just for biosecurity.

Nope, science peon for a large drug company (animal health). But that means I know a thing or two about the flow of $hit and proctology in general!
