This series really does have it all. It does a great job of portraying the big stuff:

and also the small stuff:

The extras are also very interesting; beside the usual interviews, there is also a short movie from NASA demonstrating the damage that can be done by space debris; some amusing four-panel comics starring various characters; and something I have not seen before: broken-down footage of the various elements of the intro sequence, perfect for remixing!

This is actually the Region 1 DVD. Planetes has been released on Region 2, but I didn't want to risk it. :)

Picture quality

Superb. The source material is interlaced, but a decent reverse-telecine filter (such as mplayer -vf filmdint) restores the original material, and it looks great.
