There is no clockwise or counterclockwise in space, as clockwise and counterclockwise are based on your point of perspective. Imagine a clock having a transparent face; if you look at it from behind its hands will appear to run counter-clockwise!
As far as oddballs, Venus is the only retrograde planet in our solar system -- meaning all the planets spin (rotate) daily in roughly the same direction, except Venus (tilted 177 degrees, its 'north' is everyone else's 'south') and Uranus (tilted 98 degrees, so it's been knocked on its side somehow).
Nitpicky: While Venus is the only planet with a retrograde rotation, some newly discovered Kuiper Belt Objects and comets have been found to have retrograde motion.
New auther- Although that is true if you think of spinning in an opposite direction that continues the question. I don't know the answer but if there aren't any than there are many myths/theorys about it. Example- in atoms, there's a theory that there might be matter in existence in which the electrons spin in an opposite direction.
yes. 100 rotations per second, and it holds the universe together.
Reflections, translations, rotations.
the clock ran anticlockwise
Looking down from above the north pole, it spins anticlockwise. It also orbits anticlockwise around the sun.
anticlockwise. (All toilets in the Northern Hemisphere flush clockwise, all toilets in Southern Hemisphere flush anticlockwise.)
The earth spins anticlockwise, looking down from the north.
Yes, if looked at from above the north pole. All planets orbit the sun anticlockwise, while all planets except for Venus and Uranus rotate anticlockwise on their axis.
if blades of fan connected to stator of motor used in it then rotation will be anticlockwise...
The cast of Anticlockwise - 2008 includes: Brendan McCoy as The Busker
Yes it can be (anticlockwise rotation).It means the same as counter-clockwise, and is also used as an adverb.

Rotations is a noun (plural form of rotation).
A bicycle should not make any rotations! The number of rotations made by the wheels of a bicycle will depend on the wheel size.
Very close to 365 and 1/4 rotations per year.
A double salchow has 2 rotations.
