Journey to the Planets
Journey to the Planets (Multicom Publishing Inc.) is a beautiful program in need of deeper content. When it is good, it is very good — and it’s always simple to use. A classy interface uses a tree-style structure for organizing information. Nice features include large, easy-to-read type and excellent visuals which can be displayed at full-screen size. Content is the weak link here. While there’s information on each planet’s exploration history, statistics, moons, etc., it doesn’t add up to an in-depth reference work. Like Voyage Through the Solar System, the addition of substantially more text and scholarly material would make this very attractive CD-ROM indispensable.
