I.e. staying in Saturday for the whole time...essentially freezing time? Great stuff.
Even though it takes 225 days to orbit and 243 days to rotate.
But universe today and wikipedia are calling you out!
but if you count it as one rotation, as in a day, no.
but yeah, by that definition, a day on the poles of Earth lasts a year.
I mean a day on Venus is longer than a year ON VENUS
like day time at the poles on Earth is half a year, roughly.
WTF has happened, has the London server blown up or something?
I might go to my meeting early.
That's why reading conversations between RFWore and xylopum on here is known as 'The Venus Equation'
yeah, whatever, that's not a real measurement of days.
"It takes Mercury about 59 Earth days to spin once on its axis (the rotation period), and about 88 Earth days to complete one orbit about the Sun. However, the length of the day on Mercury (sunrise to sunrise) is 176 Earth days."
day = 58d 15h 30m (in Earth time)
A light year.
