Uranus has an extremely tilted axis, you know... and wiki says:
"The wind speeds on Uranus can reach 250 meters per second (900 km/h, 560 mph)."
"Uranus is hotter at its equator than at its poles"
It's so true! "The third most abundant constituent of the Uranian atmosphere is methane (CH4)."

Has someone used a pole on Uranus?

Yes, Uranus shifts and moves so much its difficult to drill effectively. Sometimes it requires a firm hold on the surface.

A very tight hold so you can drill a long way to Uranus.

You people should be ashamed, you've taken a perfectly good thread and trashed it with your lowbrow humor and overzealous behavior. DammitJim is most likely scarred for life. Boooooo......for shame. It's unfortunate and unfair that Uranus has been made the butt of so many jokes.
