Venus: Evident Remains of 7 Continents
December 13, 2012 in Science
Venus 500 million years ago was an earth-like planet
The evident remains of the seven major continents can be seen from differences in elevation
Reason for flipping map upside down:
“The axial tilt of Venus is 177.3°. That’s a bit of a confusing number, so let’s figure out what’s going on here. Compare this number to the Earth’s axial tilt of 23.5°.
A full circle is 360°. Half a circle is 180°. So if you subtract 177.3° from 180°, you get 2.7°. In other words, Venus is actually only tilted away from the plane of the ecliptic by only 2.7°. Venus is actually completely upside down – almost perfectly upside down.
In fact, Venus is the only planet in the Solar System that rotates backwards compared to the other planets.”

Probe hints Venus once had oceans and plate tectonics
“Europe’s Venus Express orbiter suggests that some of the planet’s surface is made of granite, which on Earth needs water and plate tectonics to form.”
“Granite is the signature rock of the continents.”
