This guide collects information about planetary science into one place. For the purposes of this guide, planetary science is focused on solar system bodies and exoplanets, and it combines information on locating resources in astronomy and the geosciences. The primary goal is to elevate which databases and resources work best so you can cut down on the amount of time spent searching during your background research processes.
