Why it took so long to detect Uranus's stinky clouds
But since no human has directly visited any of these planets, how do we know how they smell? Researchers use a range of methods, including studying their chemical composition and using techniques such as spectroscopy, which detects individual wavelengths of light emitted by particular molecules. Hydrogen, oxygen, methane, nitrogen etc.
