We’ve sent thousands of things into space over the years! Many of them just orbit the Earth, and some are flying out past the edges of the Solar System. In this episode, we present our favorite currently active space probes!

We’re conducting a survey of our viewers! If you have time, please give us feedback: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SciShowSurvey2017
