For several decades, various space agencies have launched orbital missions exploring the universe, and the volume of accumulated data and imagery is staggering. The level of detail available allows scientists and engineers alike to explore planetary surfaces well beyond Earth. Join Dr. Bhairavi Shankar as we explore these findings and images, how and why we investigate planetary surfaces, and where we are now in our search. *Featuring hands-on elements*
