Are there any ice caps on Uranus?
At the center of the gas giant Uranus is beleived to be a solid planetary core composed of rock and ice, however it is impossible to see it through Uranus's thick atmospere.
This information is good, however, it doesnt tell me how many ice caps Uranus has!
Ice caps melt because of the suns rays. When the suns rays touch the ice on the ice caps they reflect off which doesn't do much but because of greenhouse gases, the infrared is bounced back to the ice as heat which then bounces of again. This cycle keeps happening until the heat that touches the ice caps finally melts it.
