Uranus is a Strange World. Instead of spinning like a top, like the other planets, Uranus spins like a bead on a string. For some reason, the side of Uranus facing the Sun is the same temperature as the side facing away from it! How do we know all this?

Spacecraft from Earth have visited Uranus, and they have taught us a lot about this sideways-spinning planet. Learn about the missions, the dedicated scientists who plan them, and more far-out facts about the seventh planet from the Sun. All the facts you need, and lots more, are included in this up-to-date book.

Haha thats true Lily! Especially in our case! Whens the meeting going to be? Pebble um tigerkit is the most aggresive one of the bunch and a real "tiger" (lolz) at heart. He looks like a tiger th faint black stripes on his fur and a black tail tip. He kinda takes after Tigerclaw from the warriors series just without the evil part... yet ...
