Solar Sail Configuration

Built like Box Kites this configuration could use the solar wind to navigate.
Space travel for this configuration is a side item for why I’m talking about this.

I would like to see larger versions and many 100’s of them spread out between the Earth and our Sun.

They would use the solar wind to stay in an area to deflect solar partials and light away from Earth and would result in changing the impact the Sun has on Earth.

During high impact solar disturbances, the ship would rotate in a way to give the least drag and impact area while rolling back in the sails.

Could be maned or not. Could be fuel depots for other ships, mainly a sun shade for Earth.
