I have seen many science shows on the planets, but this is one of the best. Excellent narration, really great computer animation, and easy-to-understand interviews with astronomers who really enjoy their work and area of expertise. A lot of them are women, which I think is a great inspiration to young girls who want to grow up and study the universe. A+

I really liked this because it tried to stick to
currently known facts about the Universe. If you have
watched other programs of the same type you know
that sometimes they spend all of the episode guessing
about what you will find on other planets etc...

I also like that they didn't present things in a
negative way. Example; When the Sun explodes in an
estimated 5 billion years the outer planets will lose
all of their mass and all that will remain are the cores
of once giant planets.

When possible I like to deal in known facts not
theories. Anyway, this is just the opinion of one
person. Overall, I found it enjoyable.

When will producers realize that not all humans have only a 2 second attention span? I looked forward to this title enourmously. I was going to drown in the glorious modern visuals of the planets and their myriad colourfull moons. Instead someone thought they were making an action movie for teenagers, and not a documentary. Machine gun scene changes did not allow the viewer one moment of visual pleasure. A total frustrating waste of pixels, and a crime. Because when is someone going to finance another (proper) go at the same title now ?

Very well done synopsis on our planets. Anything from National Geographic is tops for me. And this collection is no exception. Science, very well done, entertaining on many levels. The visuals are exceptional. 2 thumbs up.

There's so much information that I want to memorize! Can you ask these inspirational geniuses to write a book identical to their talk and photographs? To keep on my lap to confirm the facts, AT MY SPEED? PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! I do so very much want to see a text book supporting so many other science DVD'S I watch as well. Any chance my dream on this project on written material to support science DVD's will happen? Thanks, in advance. Just make sure that YOU get the credit for starting this project yourselves. Neato! Thank-you.

We got this for our son who is home-schooled, and the whole family loved the concept that National Geographic used--like a travel channel special, features on each planet that a "tourist" would be interested in seeing. There were a few extras as well: a guide to Black Holes. My son learned a lot and loved this portion of his Earth Science curriculum.

This is a very fast paced movie and very enjoyable! My students didn't complain at all on watching it, and the information married well with my textbook and PowerPoints.

I really love this set of DVDs on the planets! I learned things I never knew before about both our closest neighbors in the Milky Way and about unmanned missions to every planet. One of the coolest things about the programs is that they contain actual footage from rovers and robots that actually landed on some of the planets! Watching these programs restored my sense of wonder at the universe and the possibilities of space travel. The show is appropriate for all age levels and would be a great resource for educators. It would be an excellent addition to any library. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about our neighbors in the solar system!
