The escape velocity is 76,605 km/h (47,600 mph). One orbit of sun is 30,684 days, and one rotation is 17.2 hours. The adverage density is 1.27 g/cm3 or 1 1/4 times density of water. The layers of the planet is icy 83%, hydrogen 15%, and helium 2%. The atomosphere composition is frozen, gaseous planet with a molten core. Some unique features are Uranus has 11 rings and is the 7th planet from the sun.

Then Uranus is almost identical to planet Neptune. Uranus average obital speed is 6.8 ( km/s). Uranus Atomosphere gives the planet its distinct blushis- green color. Uranus is a large gaseous planet and it has thin dark lines. Your summer and winters would last 42 years each and be like your days and nights
