Relative rotation rates and axial tilts of (the only) mapped planets and dwarf planets, at 10hours/sec [OC] from dataisbeautiful

An informative animation by data scientist James O’Donaghue showing the rotation speed and axial tilt of the planets of our solar system. I had no idea Jupitrer was spinning that fast considering its size! Wow!
