Which is the only planet to spin on its side
Uranus doesn't appear to spin on its side because it is clearly visible that it spins on its side.
Scientist aren't sure yet but they have a theory that a huge comet or asteroid collided with the blue planet causing it to spin on its side.
Uranus spins on a 97 degree angle or on its side.
Yes, the moon rotates aound it's axis, but it doees that in the same time as it orbits our planet - this is why only one side of the moon faces us (the near side).
Uranus is the only planet which rotates on its side, with an axial tilt of 97.86 degrees.
all planets spin the same way' except for 1. this odd planet is venus.out of all the nine planets, venus is the only planet to spin clockwise. this is because billions of years ago venus got hit by an asteroid, this asteroid effected not only the way that it spins, but also how fast it will go. Jupiter spins faster than any other planet. A point on the equator of Jupiter spins faster around the… Read More
It is the only such planet in our Solar system.
sense it does not spin on it's axis its both hot and cold. the side facing the sun is hot and the side away is relatively cold
I think it's mercury (:
Uranus' axial tilt is at 97 degrees. This means it orbits lying to it's side. Venus, the 2nd planet from the sun, appears to spin 'backwards.'
1) it doesn't really ... it's tilted about 90 degrees, so it spins on its side. 2) A planet's "spin" is the result of ALL the various collisions in the lifetime of the planet ... thus its random.
The rotation of the planet on its axis of spin. The spin is responsible for the day and the night.
The same reason there are seasons that range from winter to summer its because the planet is not on a vertical spin it spins off to the side causing the orbit of earth to be different with each spin
Uranus is the only outer planet (and only planet in our solar system) that rotates on its side.
no, all planets spin and all planets in our solar system revolve around the sun.
There is only one planet that is on it's side, and it's also a gas planet. It's called Uranus. It's thought to be tilted on it's side because of a meteorite that smashed into it.
Mercury has a neighbouring planet on only one side and that planet is Venus.
Venus. it spins east to west, while other planets spin west to east. (Also Uranus has a spin that is retrograde.)
No. Only in science fiction.
Uranus. Its spin is tilted 90 degrees to that of all the other planets.
what does earth spin on besides a inmaginary line? ============== Planet Earth rotates on its axis.
Well kind sir, The planet mars, rather like our own earth, has a spin, does it not? This spin is perpendicular to the plane of the solar system, the plane that all of our fine planets spin around the sun on. Therefore, night on the red planet is created when it spins the observer around to the dark side, and day to the night. I hope this has been a satisfactory answer!! -Mr. Magorium.
Alas this planet only has the one sun, so if the sun is on one side of the planet then the other side would be in darkness.
What is a period of time it takes for a planet to spin one time around on its axis is the planent's?
It differs from planet to planet
Uranus. "Lies on its side" isn't the proper scientific description, of course.
The revolution of a planet is the time it takes to spin once on its own axis.
The side of the planet facing the sun would have air rushing from it to the other side of the planet with the force of a hurricane. The side facing the sun would be a very hot low pressure area, and the other side would be a cold high pressure area. Buildings would be ripped apart by the force of the winds. One word sums it up. Carnage.
It is called spin, there are many forms of spin, * top spin * side spin (slice) * back spin
no u cant only spin o ramas and side to side , the game sucks for the special dekes that ur talking about
Uranus, though unfortunately no one really knows why. Pluto also has a horizontal axis so it rolls on its side as well. However, Pluto is now classified as a dwarf planet so Uranus is the only planet of the 7 that spins this way.
The size of the planet doesn't have an effect on how fast a planet spins, therefore the speed to spin is random or has some other factor.
Uranus. It is almost completely tilted over onto it's side.
I believe you mean planet, as their are only planets next to Venus besides our own Sun. The Planet on the other side of Venus is Mercury and on this side is us, the Earth.
All planets lie in the plane of their orbit, but most spin on an that is nearly (many have tilted axes of spin) perpendicular to that plane. The one exception is the planet Uranus which has its axis of spin lying very close to its orbital plane.
mercury spins faster.
This is called "rotation" or "spin".
Well they all spin, but Uranus has a tilt to its axis of rotation of about 89° so you might say that at times it appears to be rolling and not spinning.
Great question. There are two reasons. The initial spinning was caused because of conservation of angular momentum. As the planets formed, dust and dirt and rock began clumping together, as they clumped together, they spun faster and faster, giving the planets their original spinning rotation. The second reason, is because one side of the planet is a little closer to the sun then the far side, so it experiences a slightly greater gravitational force, and… Read More
Uranus is one planet that spins on its side, although there is another famous dwarf planet named Pluto that also spins on its side. Uranus was first discovered as a planet on March 12, 1781. Its axis of rotation is in fact tilted sideways and its north and south poles are located where most planets have their equators.
Jupiter rotates on its axis most rapidly out of all of the planets, 9h 55m 30s for one full spin. Haumea is a small dwarf planet, it rotates once in only 3h 54m 56s.

Every single planet but Mercury
If the planet moved out of it's orbit the planet can be destroyed or spin out of control
All of the planets orbit the sun in the same direction. The axial rotation of each planet, the spin can vary though. Most spin in an anti-clockwise direction, but Venus and Uranus spin in a clockwise direction when viewed from above.
All planets spin on their axes as well as orbiting the Sun.
Absolutely. Spin creates centrifugal force, which actually works against gravity. When a object on a planet spins with the planet, the spin of the planet is constantly trying to fling said object off into space, where as gravity is constantly forcing the object toward the spinning body. If the spin became so great that it overcame the gravitational pull, the object would be flung into space. While spin does not actually affect the gravity of… Read More
Yes, SPIN. With spin you can do spin. With bat. And the in another side human will not hit the ball.
I think the planet Mars spins clockwise.
There are 3 planets you fight Bowser on. Planet 1- Bowser will turn into a rock and start squashing you. Spin where his head is, then spin him again. Repeat. Planet 2- Hit 1 of the buds into Bowser's face and spin attack him. Repeat. Planet 3- Wait till he leaps into the air and onto the lava hole, then spin attack him twice. Repeat. Bowser is dead.
