The article commented "A day on Venus lasts 243 Earth days (that's how long it takes Venus to make one rotation), while a year on Venus (its revolution period around the sun) is shorter, at just 224.7 Earth days."

Venus spins retrograde vs. the Sun's solar rotation or Earth's rotation and Earth's length of day (LOD) so very different than Venus LOD. Interesting how *tiny dust grains* in the solar nebula evolved with so many differences that developed between Earth and Venus, like the retrograde spin and atmosphere differences or LOD :)

I really do believe the early solar system was a game of billiards, almost planets hitting planets causing varying obliquities and rotation periods, and creating our moon.
