A day is longer than a year on which planet?

Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 11 Jan 2010

The answer to this one is Venus.

Due to the way that it rotates so incredibly slowly on its axis (which is what makes a day) it actually takes longer to create one revolution than it does to complete one orbit of the Sun!

So incredibly a day on Venus lasts longer than a year, very strange when you think about the fact on Earth it is about 365.25 times longer!
