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 lunar base project has several parts. It will consist of two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen with an integrated dining room, a living room, a relaxation room located upstairs + a work room (where they go for their research and their experiences. To feed it was decided that it would feed on insects and for water take packs from Earth and then store them in a room. The base is made of concrete harvested from the lunar soil
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
On the far side of the Moon
Why did you choose this location?
Our lunar base will be placed on the hidden surface of the moon.
We chose this location because it is quite far from planet Earth. So from where the lunar base will be we will not be able to see the Earth. This allows us to be completely disconnected from planet Earth. This location is just as good because this far side of the Moon also has the largest known impact crater in the solar system: The South Pole Aikten Basin. It was decided to install a gigantic radio telescope there, with the advantage that it would be protected from possible interference from the Earth.
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
According to researchers the best material on the moon is concrete because we can make it thanks to the lunar soil (regolith)
Regolith: is a soil part of the soil overlying bedrock that may contain loose material, such as dust or earth.
Water: Take packs of water from Earth and then store them (be careful that the water does not come into contact with the Sun’s raysbecause to a certain degree it can cause bacteria).
Food: Raising edible insects or growing food.
Energy: On the moon, the sun can provide a significant amount of energy, but nevertheless the long nights on the star must be taken into account (one night on the moon = 15 days on the earth).
Air: In theory, it would be possible to extract oxygen from dust in the ground.
protection: Just use a sage stick and burn it in the armeau
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
On the Moon you can do lots of things, you can practice indoor sports, you can cook, you can garden and create food from vegetation.
