Planetary Science

I really want to like this book.  An actual planetary science book for middle schoolers, with occasional interspersed comics of two kids of color and a hijab-wearing astronomer?  What's not to like, right?  It is also up-to-date, including the upcoming InSight, ExoMars, and Mars 2020 missions.

Title:  Planetary Science
Author: Matthew Brenden Wood
Publication year: 2017

Mostly, I do like it, but there's this absolute screamer of an error:

I'm not a planetary scientist, and I found this one pretty quickly. I hope the publisher and author will commit to a better quality control process for the second edition, because I really want to love this book!
