Venus is also retrograde, according to Fred Hoyle.

Yes she is, she spins counterclockwise.

Oi You!

:-)))

If you could stand on the surface of Venus. You would see the Sun rise in the west and then take 116.75 days to travel across the sky and then set in the east.

She/He does do that.

When God created man she was just having a bad hair day.

The trouble is that none of us will ever know one way or the other ...

I've read it in "Cosmogony of the Solar System" by Fred Hoyle, pag.77 of the Italian edition which I edited in 1979 while working at Mondadori Edizioni Scientifiche.

Thanks Julie. I trust my books even if they are 30 years old, such as "Beyond the Moon" and "Monsters in the sky" by my friend Paolo Maffei. "Beyond the Moon" had seven Italian editions, all edited by me, before being published by MIT Press in USA. I remember a queer fact about its translation. It was done by Father O"Connell, a British astronomer who was also a Jesuit priest, in beautiful English. When we received the draft proofs Father O"Connell wanted to retract his name. The American editors had translated his English English into American English, and we had to make an effort to have him accept this fact.

Nice...but it only says that the Venus was made by the debris field of the Sun...and something went wrong with the collision with some larger body!

Also, Venus doesn't have moon(s)...so that also makes the rotation depended on the revolution...yes, the article is correct!

But, no...I don't see any proof that Venus was in fact "foreign body" in Solar system! There are no proof for that...allthough those are some nice ideas, that make so much fictional teories...those fiction needs proof, to become science! Like Sagan always said: "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence"


That is why I would like to see those flying cities on Venus in upper atmosphere...imagine the all data that we can get from those zepelins? Image what can we find out about the Venus? Image to live in a zepelin above Venus? (and a Top Gun music just plays back on radio...how propper!) :D
Imagine how nice it would be to have some algae on board for oxygen...and you release it wrom time to time on Venus...one that eats sulphur (and suphuric acid) & another one that eats carbon dioxide...and slowly, u terraform the planet... ;)

With a bit of luck we will get some pictures of Pluto but not until next year, even though the New Horizons probe is due to fly past starting in May 2015.

update.

NASA’s New Horizons Spacecraft Begins First Stages of Pluto Encounter

NASA's New Horizons spacecraft recently began its long-awaited, historic encounter with Pluto. The spacecraft is entering the first of several approach phases that culminate July 14 with the first close-up flyby of the dwarf planet, 4.67 billion miles (7.5 billion kilometers) from Earth.

“NASA first mission to distant Pluto will also be humankind’s first close up view of this cold, unexplored world in our solar system,” said Jim Green, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division at the agency’s Headquarters in Washington. “The New Horizons team worked very hard to prepare for this first phase, and they did it flawlessly.”

Beyond Pluto.

Two new planets may be hiding beyond Pluto

If the results of two latest studies from Spain and the UK are anything to go by, then two more planets may exist in our solar system and just starting to make their presence known.

Astronomers from the UK and Spain have theorized that two new planets exist beyond Pluto – which was recently demoted from the status of a planet – because this logic is the only way to explain the rationale affecting the behavior of objects in the nether regions of Neptune.

New Horizons returns first images from mission's Pluto approach phase



The two images in this animation were taken on January 25 and 27, 2015. They were the first acquired during the spacecraft's 2015 approach to the Pluto system. New Horizons was about 203 million kilometers from Pluto when the frames to make the first image were taken; about 2.5 million kilometers closer for the second set.

Looks like a planet.

New Horizons spots Pluto’s smaller moons for the first time

It's not exactly a clean shot, but it's certainly a timely one: 85 years to the day after Pluto's discovery, NASA has released fresh images from New Horizons that show two of its smaller moons. The long-exposure images, which were taken between Jan. 27 and Feb. 8 from a distance of 125 to 115 million miles, show Hydra and Nix -- moons too small to show up in previous shots.

Hoping they find more moons.
