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 base is in the underground lava tunnels. To access it there is a large metal dome (like all those of the base) to re-oxygenate and shelter from the temperature, the storm, the asteroids… Once inside the large dome, an elevator descends below to be safe from any danger explained above. Once under the dome, you enter another dome that is a little smaller but very useful because it is a living room with a kitchen and a gym. Metal tubes connect all the parts together. Three of these domes are chambers and the last dome is a control room for talking to the earth and anticipating the trajectories of meteorites. We also have a very small water tank which is renewed with a filter for the shower and the toilet which is next to the kitchen in a small cylinder. And finally we have a small vegetable garden and a greenhouse.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the lunar poles
Why did you choose this location?
We chose to build our lunar camp there because we will find water more easily. We will also check the lighting conditions.
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
We have chosen to make our base with lunar material such as regolith.
we will recycle the urine, our drill robot will recover the ice thanks to this drill. in the small tanks there are propellers which crush the ice to make it liquid.
we have a vegetable garden that grows a multitude of vegetables and in our greenhouse there are pigs that breathe thanks to the trees that are there.
We have solar panels above the base.
We have trees in our greenhouse and in our vegetable patch we have algae.
we buried our base in underground lava tunnels.
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
To start the day off right, start by stretching after a good night’s sleep. We start with breakfast. Cereal bars will be the most used. Then, after being wide awake, we do 2 hours of sport and then we have lunch. After eating we start the household chores, the maintenance of the greenhouse and the garden. We report back to earth and make audio contact. After that we prepare dinner, we shower (hygiene) etc… Then we go to bed and the day will start again.
