Random Useless Fact: A Single Day on Venus is Longer than a Full Year on Venus

"Random UselessFact" is exactly what it sounds like, just a random fact that although useless is hopefully pretty cool.

Quick trip to your 3rd grade Science class, how do you define "a year"? If you said 365 days then sadly you're mistaken, after all what's a day? According to Science:

One Year: Is a single rotation of a planet around the Sun.
One Day: Is a single rotation of a planet on it's own axis

Venus being one spot closer to the Sun then Earth means a rotation around the sun is a tad bit shorter, 225 Earth days to be exact, while a day on Venus is a whopping 243 Earth days. Which is why a day on Venus is longer than a year on Venus.

Pretty cool huh? Share your thoughts down below.
