If we could actually get close enough, we might be able to smell this substance: semi-frozen methane. This conclusion departs from previous assessments of Uranus which concluded that the planet consists of mostly water and ammonia.

We will, though, have to wait for more advanced probes to deeply penetrate Uranus instead of relying only on data gathered by flybys, such as that procured by Voyager 2.
