Miranda is the smallest and innermost of Uranus's five major moons. It was named after Miranda from William[1]Shakespheare's play The Tempest by Kuiper in his report of the discovery. The terraforming of Miranda May be very difficult. It is a moon that had reshaped itself into a sphere shape. It is one of the smallest known astronomical body that has been pulled into a rounded shape due to its own gravity. It is the closes major moon to Uranus. Miranda has a very low gravity rate.Its large distance from Earth making it even more difficult. Its close distance could make Miranda more easy for minding an Atmosphere around Miranda due to its close distance to Uranus.The surface area of Miranda is approximately equal to the land area of Texas. Miranda's surface may be mostly water ice, with the low-density body also probably containing silicate rock and organic compounds in its interior.Miranda's surface has patchwork regions of broken terrain indicating intense geological activity in the moon's past, and is criss-crossed by huge canyons. Large 'racetrack'-like grooved structures, called coronae, may have formed via extensional processes at the tops of diapirs, or upwellings of warm ice. Miranda may have a ocean deep bellow it crust. 50 % of Miranda may be water. The landscape of Miranda may be very unusually and mountain like. Miranda in away could be easier to terraform if it was closer to Uranus.After we finish terraforming Miranda. We will have to continuously replenish its atmosphere over time.Miranda will be a good place for a colonization.
