Synopsis by Alice Day
Students will learn what comprises a solar system in this program. The solar system gets equal billing in Space Science in Action: Planets & the Solar System, as Malcolm and Stanley, future scientists, look at each planet. Earth, of course, is the only planet with life, but the other eight planets have interesting features. As Malcolm and Stanley explore the facts about them all, student viewers will absorb the information. Jupiter has the famous storm and many moons, while Saturn, once known as the planet with rings, is not the only planet with this distinction.
