    The planets in our solar system orbit in a counter clockwise orbit.

    Only if you look at them from above.

    From below they go clockwise.

    Then again, is there such a thing as above & below in space?

    The article I was reading made this statement. I do think these things have a default point on reference and that would be from "above". Maybe a result of referencing the north star and how we view our solar system. It also stated that is simply what dynamics our dust cloud was experiencing at planet formation. Indicating the opposite happens in other solar systems depending on the specific dynamics. Fun stuff IMHO.

    another TOTD

    A day on venus is longer than a year also venus rotates in the oposite direction than the other planets of the solar system, temperatures on the surface of venus are hot enough to melt lead, yet conditions in the cloud cover could support life, it rains sulphuric acid on venus .

    It's all perspective. Suppose you journey to the moon. The moon is "up there" as you leave the Earth, which is "down there." You approach the moon and it is "down there" and the Earth is "up there."

    When you look at a map, north is always / usually up, and south down. Why? Why not put south up and north down? Sure, all the land masses will be upside down, but who chose this point of reference?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    I'm thinking it was the dominant northern hemisphere nations, right? When you're in charge and you draw a map, where do you put yourself?

    Of recent, they seem to change their minds more often than they change their underwear.

    High five-ing you right now.

    I love the Dog. I actually was just listening to the album a couple days ago, along with the Mother Love Bone album. Nostalgia and smiles.
