Science question

Do all the planets spin in the same direction around the sun?

Yeah, we;re drunk and this sparked an argunment.

Re: Science question

All the planets orbit in the same direction, they all spin in the same direction, and they're all on the same plane.

actually, this is incorrect... one of the planets, I forget which one, has an axis of rotation that is over 180 degrees, which means it is effectively spinning the wrong way... I believe it might be Uranus... but maybe Neptune. I'm also drunk, which doesn't help things, but you know. They all orbit in the same direction... but one of them has an axis of rotation (the proper term... instead of "revolving"), that means it is spinning the opposite direction... based on the magnetic poles or some BS like that.

Re: Science question

actually, its axis is at a 90* relative angle to earths, meaning, we spin side to side, while neptune spins top to bottom.

and all panets are not on the same plane. each of the 8 planets almost rotate the sun on the same plane, while pluto, is quite a bit off, its a bit low on one stretch, and higher on the opposite. hard to explain semi-drunk and without a picture.

it all has to do with how the galaxy was formed. while were basically flat looking, we could look at a system and itll be completely at a different angle to us(as in, we could look sideways at them from the top, while they would be looking up seeing us from the side), and the "plane" that all the planets/orbital bodies are on has to do with gravity and how that system was formed.

Pluto isn't even a planet.

Re: Science question

I believe the current theory on Uranus' weird rotation is that early in its development, it was struck by a very large body... which is also what they think happened to Pluto... they think it was a moon of Neptune.

Re: Science question

if by direction you mean the exact same path, then no they do not do this.
