so how many other planets smell of gone off food?

The discovery marks another distinction between the ice giants - Uranus and Neptune - and the gas giants - Jupiter and Saturn. Neptune is also presumed to contain hydrogen sulfide gas, whilst the gas giants have ammonia and ammonia ice in its upper clouds.

I'm glad they told us that, otherwise I would have thought Neptune smells of dead fish (ammonia) -- he's the god of the sea.
