Scientists begin using the most powerful space telescope to look at Uranus

Scientists have begun using the James Webb space telescope, which uses infrared rays, to search for the mysterious seventh planet, Uranus. The image that was taken of the planet Uranus, famous for the turquoise planet, revealed the appearance of moons around it, and that Uranus is really strange at first sight, and the presence of […]
