Disclosed the mystery of the "intermittent day" on Venus

Why Does Venus Spin So Weirdly

This was confirmed consistent with the observations of a computer simulation, which showed that the interaction between the wind and the high mountain ranges gives rise to a gravitational wave.

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency has a spacecraft orbiting Venus called Akatsuki. These effects are spread out so widely across the entire planet that it is losing two minutes each "Venus day". However, its atmosphere is moving much faster than the surface dense layer of clouds in just 4 days in order to make a complete revolution around the planet.

This was reported in the journal Nature Geoscience. In this regard, a new study has uncovered a connection between this planet's mountains and its atmosphere, which can trigger some powerful gravity waves that can lengthen a day on Venus with up to two minutes. As a result, Venus spins at different speeds. But the second planet from the Sun reveal new surprises.

Fabianski is now part of the Poland squad at the World Cup in Russian Federation . West Ham have announced the signing of Toulouse defender Issa Diop .

This is longer than it takes to orbit the Sun - around 225 Earth days - which in turn means that a Venusian day is longer than a Venusian year.

Venus is more similar to Earth than scientists initially assumed, with its dense atmosphere saturated by carbon dioxide and its size which is nearly identical to that of our planet.

According to Cosmos, the phenomenon observed by the researchers is similar to what we see when winds crash against our planet's mountains, thereby changing Earth's spin.

ICC Announces Plan for World Test Championship and ODI League
The Black Caps next tour to Australia had been penciled in for the 2020-21 summer, but was brought forward. Sutherland said CA endorsed the creation of the Test championship and ODI league.

"Over several days of observation, the bow-shaped structure remained relatively fixed in position above the highland on the slowly rotating surface, despite the background atmospheric superrotation", Japanese researchers wrote in the 2017 paper that described the wave for the first time.

The author of the study, Thomas Navarro at the University of California, said in a statement, "Overall, a net force is exerted on the mountain, and the whole solid body follows".

Accordingly, the planet's fast-moving winds strike the mountains peaks producing an atmospheric formation that appears not to move.

Prince Louis christening: Kate Middleton confirms christening date for royal baby
But the royal expert insisted the church where Princess Charlotte was christened is also close to the hearts of the royal couple. The date coincidently falls a week after Prince George finishes his school year and Princess Charlotte breaks for the summer.

There are other things we don't know about Venus, too, which we could learn by figuring out the precise length of a Venusian day, according to the team. They then ran the simulation. This could help explain why scientists have struggled to pin down a precise measurement of a Venusian day. Furthermore, the researchers acknowledged that the model they used has some limits, and the only way to confirm their theory would be to directly observe what goes down in Venus once the weather phenomenon takes place.
