Dandelion

Spreading the spirit of the human adventure into the unknown universe, just like the way to seed the dandelion.


Dandelion”, the whole ship is designed to be like dandelion seed, and it’s built on the lunar orbit. As soon as departure, the giant "LightSail", which is led by the solar wind, will sail forward to the planet Mars.


After entering the orbit of Mars, the LightSail will be self-abandoned. The landing Mars Exploration Module (SEED) will separate out from the main ship then land to Mars. After the mission is completed, it will go back to meet with the main ship on the track and return to the lunar base.
