Uranus
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Photo Credit: NASA/Space Telescope Science Institute: This 2006 image was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.
 
2     Our spacecraft is taking us away from Saturn. Next, we will visit Uranus. Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun. It is much larger than the Earth.
 
3     Uranus is the only planet that seems to be lying on its side. It does not spin like a top. It rolls on its side like a barrel. No one knows for sure why it is tipped over. Some scientists think that an Earth-sized object may have hit Uranus.
