Within distances of ∼600,000 km from Uranus, the Planetary Radio Astronomy (PRA) experiment aboard the Voyager 2 spacecraft detected impulsive (100–300 ms) bursts of broad-band (≤900 kHz to ∼40 MHz) radio emission. This emission is very different from the uranian magnetospheric radio component, also discovered during the recent Voyager–Uranus encounter1. During the two Saturn encounters, in 1980 and 1981, the PRA experiments detected similar radio emissions2,3, which have been interpreted as… CONTINUE READING
