Goofs

The narrator first states "the Venutian days are long ones: The amount of time from one sunrise to the next is about 8 Earth months," then later says "when it comes to the time it takes Mercury to spin on its own axis, the planet holds the record for being the slowest: Length of time, around 180 Earth days, about half a year." According to what he said earlier, Venus rotates slower, and is in fact the slowest rotating planet, as can be verified online. See more »
