Here is a tutorial which will help you exactly with what you want:

For the rotating planet effect, go here:

For importing into Powerpoint,
1. Create and save your movie in Flash as a .swf file. Take note of the path where you saved it.
2. In PowerPoint 97 or 2000, create a new slide.
3. From the VIEW menu, scroll down to TOOLBARS and choose VISUAL BASIC. From the Visual Basic Toolbar, click on the CONTROL TOOLBOX icon.
4. From the CONTROL TOOLBOX, select MORE CONTROLS icon.
5. From the scrolldown list, choose SHOCKWAVE FLASH OBJECT.
Your cursor will change to a cross hair cursor. Draw out a rectangle on your slide (size can be re-adjusted later).
6. Right click on the rectangle you just drew and choose PROPERTIES.
7. Under the Alphabetic tab, make the following changes:
LOOP - Change to FALSE (leave TRUE if you want movie to loop).
MOVIE - type in the absolute path of your file (c:\your_hard_drive/your_directory\movie_ name.swf)
8. Run slide show to see movie run. Make any size adjustments as necessary.

Hope this helps...
