The observations are vital for piecing together the science objectives for a future mission to Uranus.
Unvisited by spacecraft for more than 35 years, Uranus inhabits one of the least explored regions of our solar system.
Wind tunnels show what a probe descending into the atmosphere of Uranus or Neptune would probably need to contend with. Such a probe is a high-priority mission for both NASA and ESA.
