This one can be hard if you don't approach it at the right angle. After you leave Earth, several rockets will fire as soon as you return close enough to the planet. These are the escape pods.

I found that the only way to get all of them before they leave the screen was to start at the bottom of the planet and go clockwise. The rockets all fire at around the same time, but the first group leaves from about the 5:00 position (imagining the planet as a clock face).

From your starting position, approach the planet so you hit it at about 4:00 and sweep clockwise (left along the bottom), catching the first three as they're fired. From here, it's just a matter of continuing to run a clockwise circle and catching all of them without slowing down much. There are the beginning three, another one solo just to the left of them, three more at the top left, one straight up, and the last three off to the right. If you can make it to the top one, you should be fine to get those last three.

Good luck.

EDIT: Got my clock numbers backward, thanks to SneezeSomeMilk for pointing it out.
