PC Entertainment, March 1996

"Hitchhike across the solar system with The Planets, a Scientific American Library release from Simon & Schuster and Byron Priess. This Windows CD-ROM combines more than 60 spectacular videos and animations with the text from the book Exploring Planetary Worlds, by David Morrison, chief of the Space Division at NASA Ames Research Center.

"Best of all, you can build your own planet, create life, and then set the whole thing into orbit in your own solar system. Dr. Donald Goldsmith, host of the PBS series The Astronomers, provides you with tips.

The disc also includes a Planetary Traveler module that lets you view 3-D images of Venus taken by the Magellan satellite, as well as the pictures NASA's Voyager II took of Neptune and Uranus."
