And the award for unintentionally funny headline of the day goes to this article. I can now spend the rest of the day walking up to people and talking about all the new things we have discovered on Uranus.

Uranus may have two small moons that no one has ever seen, orbiting closer to the planet than any of its other satellites and making wavy patterns in the planet’s rings. The ice giant has 27 known moons, far fewer than the 67 and 62 of its neighbours Jupiter and Saturn, respectively. Uranus is a smaller planet, which may explain the difference.
