Thanks to the huge number of images taken by the Rovers, a scientist, a planetary scientist from space flight Center name Goddard NASA Greenbelt Geronimo Villanueva created a simulation of a sunset on various celestial bodies.
About it writes National Geographic.
In his work, he used computer modeling and created an online tool called “Planetary generator”spectrum.
The simulator helps to make predictions on the transmission of light through the atmosphere of planets, exoplanets and comets, given the surface and atmospheric composition of cosmic bodies.
In particular, the simulation took into account the photons scattered in different directions depending on energy of photons and types of molecules in the atmospheres. The resulting color palette would be visible to those who meet sunsets on the surface of these worlds.
Another animation demonstrates the change in the colors in the atmospheres of the worlds more schematically. The white dot in the video represents the location of the Sun.
The authors note that the simulations are not fully reliable, but have a broad scientific basis.
This work was conducted in preparation for a possible future mission to Uranus, which is headed by Villanueva. Once, the probe can descend into the planet’s atmosphere and will help to study the composition of the Uranium, its structure, and find out what the frost giants are different from gas. At best the mission to Uranus will be launched in 2034.
