Do you ever want to escape to somewhere far away and exotic? It’s hard to get farther away or more exotic than the planet Uranus. Earth is the third planet from the sun, while Uranus is the seventh. You know what that means: it’s cold out there! In fact, it’s about -355 degrees! Yikes!
And I thought we were having a chilly spring this year.
Oh, and speaking of years, a year on Uranus, since it takes so long to get around the sun, is 84 times longer than ours. You might want to make yourself a cup of hot cocoa before I tell you this next part: that means that winter on Uranus is 21 years long!
On the other hand, that gives everyone a lot of time to curl up with a good book. Or two. Or three. Or more.
Does that mean that if I lived on Uranus, I’d be uber successful as a writer? Hmmmmm……. When does the next rocket leave?
After I make sure I have the absolute best cocoa in the universe to go with all that reading!
