In Moon Camp Explorers each team’s mission is to 3D design a complete Moon Camp using Tinkercad. They also have to explain how they will use local resources, protect astronauts from the dangerous of space and describe the living and working facilities.
Our Moon Camp project is located in the south pole of the Moon. It is a invetigation center where astronauts go to investigate. After one year maximum people have to come back to Earth. There is enough oxygen and food (water too) for five people in one year. The structure of it is also very useful because you can easily make it bigger.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the Lunar Poles
Why did you choose this location?
We chose this location because in the poles is where we found water in the solid state, and that way if suddenly we run out of water we can take ice and treat it so that we can drink it. And besides if there is water there, it is possible that there are other liquids and we can try to find some new liquids. The fact that BBC says that we know that there is water in the moon, changes the whole point of view of the Solar System. Water is also fuel to rockets. To life and agriculture too. So that’s why we chose this place, so that we can investigate and have natural resources at our hand.
How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Which materials would you use?
On Earth we build the base on earth, and then we take it to earth and build it like a bunch of legos on the moon. We would use different types of metals.
Explain how your Moon Camp will provide the astronauts with:
The first days we use the water we bring from Earth and the rest of the days we can melt the water and purify it doing the magic of science.
The meals would be base in tomatoes and wheat, that are the best one that on the mmon can grow. In adittion to that, we have a garden which provides more vegetables, and astronauts need to collect the fruit when it is ripe. The garden provides food and the seeds regenerate when you take the vegetables.
One of the ways is while astronauts are running in the treadmill (yes, the one that looks like a spantapajarus), and the energy gathers for a whole day, and that way they are obliged to keep fit. And of course with the solar panels and also with a hydrogen motor, in which we use drinkwater and split with the energy of the solar panels, the water components. Then we use those components to generate electric energy and water.
We use part of the water too, and separate it with the solar panels and the hydrogen use it to experiment and the oxygen use it to breathe. It also has to make that the carbon dioxide leaves the base, and we can use the method that ISS calls electrolysis to split the water in oxygen and hydrogen and airs the carbon dioxide stuck in the room.
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
Firs they wake up and they eat something, then they go to the gym, then they go take showers, in turns, and then when each finishes, they can go explore and test things and experiment. Then with the antenna they comunicate with the Earth and tell them their progress.
