Astrophysicist Naomi Rowe-Gurney

Explained how gas giants Uranus and Neptune rain what we on Earth consider precious gemstones.

In Addition to Methane

Uranus and Neptune both have atmospheres made up of molecular hydrogen and atomic helium.

Rowe-Gurney Said

She Added

 “And that means that they kind of rain down in the atmosphere.”


She said the phenomenon is not something humans would be able to witness.
