Light Sail Probe to Alpha Centauri

A composite picture I made to today from public domain pictures, to celebrate the news about the Breakthrough Startshot project. The probe is my rendering of a public domain 3D Warehouse model. The final Breakthrough Startshot interstellar payload is likely to be much smaller and more central to the propulsion disk, although a solar system -only probe might perhaps be as large as shown.
