Q:

What is the surface temperature of Uranus?

A:

According to NASA, the temperature on Uranus is 60.92 degrees Kelvin. The planet does not have a solid surface. Most of Uranus’ mass is made up of icy materials, including water, methane and ammonia.

Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun at a distance of approximately 1.8 billion miles. A day on Uranus is 17 Earth hours, which is equal to the time it takes for Uranus to complete one spin. A year on Uranus is 84 Earth years, which is the amount of time it takes to orbit around the sun. Unlike the other planets, Uranus rotates on its side, which means it spins horizontally.

Every living organism known to science obtains all of its resources from Earth, and has very few other options available. Without the Earth, humans would be doomed to extinction, unless they were able to adapt to another planet's conditions before the Earth disappeared.
