Abstract:
    Tensegrity robots allow for a much more cost effective solution to other planetary explorations by combining both the landing and mobility platforms into one.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Sustainable space exploration missions in terms of investment as well as the science payback per mission.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   It
How will the solution works
    Tensegrity robots can withstand high impact loads and by use of ingenious control systems can be converted into a mobility platform. By the use of space-grade materials for the structure, along with the concept of morphological computation through resonance, tensegrity robot will not only be capable withstanding the impact force after being dropped into another plant, but will protect its payload and then travel to the required destination to collect data and samples.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
