Most Extreme Weather On Other Planets I business news I astronomy


Sulfuric acid raining from the sky epic dust storms raging for months on end and Giant hurricanes that could swallow earth whole if you think earth has some bad weather Think again Mercury has little to no atmosphere and therefore no real weather to speak of but you would feel the full brunt from the most powerful storms in our solar system called Coronal mass ejections these explosive storms form on the Sun and bathe mercury surface and high-energy radiation so if the lack of oxygen and extreme temperatures don’t kill you the radiation certainly will This isn’t as much of a problem on Venus. However After all, the entire planet is covered with clouds bad news is they’re toxic These clouds rain sulfuric acid. That’s so corrosive It would eat through your skin on contact on Mars The surface is rocky and desert like so when can stir up loose soil creating? Giant dust devils twice the height of Mount Everest, but that’s nothing compared to the dust storms that sometimes engulf the entire planet For months at a time and the weather on Jupiter isn’t any better, of course There’s the Great Red Spot a hurricane like storm that’s been raging for at least 300 years But there’s another storm on Jupiter that’s equally powerful with wind speeds twice as fast as a category 5 hurricane Its name is oval ba Otherwise known as the little red spot But it’s hardly little it’s actually about the size of Earth and it’s been growing in size since astronomers discovered it in 2000 Next door is a weather phenomenon. That’s even larger Saturn’s North Pole harbors a giant jet stream called the hexagon each of its six distinct sides are larger than earth itself and At its center is a massive rotating cloud system. That’s 50 times larger than the average eye of a hurricane on earth moving right along Next up Uranus. If you look at its tilt you’ll notice that Uranus spins on its side Which makes its seasons more extreme than anywhere else in the solar system, for example wintertime has no sunlight and because Uranus is so far from the Sun winter lasts the equivalent of 21 earth years that’s 21 years with temperatures that can reach as low as negative 216 degrees Celsius Last but not least is Neptune. You’ll want to pack a windbreaker for this visit nicknamed the windiest planet Neptune strongest winds can exceed 1930 Km/h, that’s one and a half times the speed of sound on earth and fast enough to fly from New York to Los Angeles in Just two point three hours So maybe the acid rain towering dust devils and super-fast winds make our planets weather look a little nicer Not too hot not too cold Not too windy Just right
