You can build new landers at the starbase (outfit flagship section).

In the early days before you upgrade your landers (don't worry about this yet) the best thing to do is...

1. Only use landers when you can fill them with crew (they last longer)
2. Always keep your finger on the escape button so if you start taking damage you can get out quick!!

I always carry 2 landers. Nothing worse than having to fly all the way back to earth in the middle of a 'harvest'...accidents happen. The maximum you can carry is nine (or is it ten?) but that's overkill really!

Also, before you get upgrades from the Melnorme avoid planets with Weather or Tectonics ratings above 3 (even 3 is risky if you're not careful) and avoid planets with temperatures above 150 degrees Celcius.  Also, avoiding planets with hostile lifeforms is probably a good idea too.  There are plenty of planets out there with good minerals to get you started, you just gotta look around and be careful!

I've never needed to carry more than 2 landers.
