Exploring the Images in the Solar System with SPIF

We have a fascinating solar system. Much of what we have learned so far is from from space explorations and missions. Spacecraft Planetary Image Facility (SPIF), in partnership with NASA, housed at Cornell University, studies all the of the images we have captured in the universe, and WOW are they amazing! In this session, we explore why Jupiter looks so cool, why Mars has dust devils, why Mercury hasn't been explored as much, why Venus is called our sister planet, and more, through beautiful images delivered by SPIF Space Communicator Expert, Zoe Ponterio. SPIF has lots of resources for teachers and classrooms, including setting up a one-on-one Virtual Field Trip of your own. Want to explore why Mars has landslides? Check out Universe Today.
