Venus, despite being the closest planet to Earth in the Solar System, still keeps some secrets. New information about the complex evolution of the planet and its harsh atmospheric structure continues to be gained day by day. In the journal Nature Astronomy posted on April 29 a research also revealed how long a day is on Venus.
A group of scientists from the University of California (UCLA) announced the duration of a Venus day after their investigations and measurements. Accordingly, a day on Venus, on average equates to 243.0226 Earth days. In other words, a day on Venus is two-thirds the length of an Earth year.
More information about Venus erased:
Venus and Earth are rocky and almost if they are the same binaries, with their size and density they are very similar to each other. But this similarity is not found in other properties of the planets. Scientists at UCLA have begun investigating to learn even better the difference between the length of a day, a subject in which planets are not alike.
The team from the Mojave Desert in California from 2006 to 2020 Goldstone antenna studied the radio waves sent to Venus. Estimated radar measurements derived from the data obtained showed how long a day on Venus was on average. In addition, some data was obtained on the axis tilt and core size of the planet.
Accordingly Venus, exactly 2.6392 degrees of axis tilt have. This tilt is 23 degrees on our planet Earth. The motion of the planet too 29. In 000 years is happening. This period is 26,000 years in the world. Considering the rotation speed of Venus, the team, thanks to these data, 3. Close to 500 kilometers revealed that it has the diameter. The total diameter of the inner and outer cores in the world is 3. 420 kilometers.
