Moon Camp Explorers Gallery 2021-2022

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.

Team: Hateize

Project description

This is camp Hateize, a camp fit even for extraterrestrials. This lunar base is composed by two areas: one of them will be used as a work space and the other one  as a rest and leisure area.

The main base is the bigger one: on the first floor there are bedrooms, changing areas, a dining hall and a stockroom; whereas on the second floor there is a gym. Next to the main base there is a garage where the lunar vehicle will be parked. This vehicle will make it possible for us to explore the moon.

In the other base we have a 3D printer and two computers, together with equipment that will allow communication both with the lunar vehicle and the bases on Earth. Outside we have six solar panels which will be used to provide electricity to the camp. This will be possible by means of electrolysis, a process which will be used a lot in this camp, mainly to provide eletricity coming from the solar panels that absorb energy from the sun.

Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the lunar poles
Why did you choose this location?

After thorough research and consideration, we chose the South Pole, mainly due to the highest amount of “water” and the most suitable temperature, but also for scientific interest. The South Pole is known to have the highest mountains and craters, covered by valuable ice, which can be melted into drinking water.

How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?

After thorough research and consideration, we chose the South Pole, mainly due to the highest amount of “water” and the most suitable temperature, but also for scientific interest. The South Pole is known to have the highest mountains and craters, covered by valuable ice, which can be melted into drinking water.

Water

Electricity

Protection

We will be reusing most of our water. We will recycle urine and make the ice from the poles suitable to drink using fusion-filter machinery. We will use physical and chemical processes to make the water fit for drinking. The water we will filter will not only be used for drinking, but also for hygienic purposes such as showering and flushing the toilet.

We will start by planting fruits and vegetables in the greenhouse. Meanwhile, the main source of food will be the stocks brought in from Earth, like canned goods. They will be stored in the stockroom in the main base.

Electricity will be produced by the process of electrolysis coming from the solar panels that collect energy directly from the sun.

Until the greenhouse is fully working, the oxygen will be produced by means of an artificial life support system.

Vehicles and suits will be efficiently protected from radiation, which is not a problem on Earth on account of its atmosphere, however they are a problem for us on the moon. In addition we will add an alarme that will alert us if anything unexpected happens.

Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts

A day in the life of our astronauts will be like:

routine for 24h:

7h30/8h: wake up.

8h-9h30: have breakfast and prepare for the day.

9h30-10h30: exercise (in the gymnasium).

10h30-11h: clean up and have a snack.

11h-12h30: half of the group will be doing scientific research at this time. The other half will be outside collecting samples of moon soil, investigating territories around the camp and visiting other partes of the moon.

12h30-14h: a break to have lunch.

14h-15h30: change of shifts between astronauts from the 11am shift (this means the people that were doing research at 11am will now go outside to investigate and vice versa)

15h30-17h: take care of the greenhouse.

17h-17h30: break to rest (they can either sleep or eat, this time will be free and the astronauts can do whatever they´d like to).  

17h30-18h: group gathering to share what they discovered during the day.

18h-19h: communication will the planet earth to share recent discoveries and to check-in to reassure they are okay. 

19h-19h30: Do a bit of yoga in group, this is good because it helps improve your strength, flexibility and balance; It is also good to relax and even to help the astronauts have more trust in one and other.

19h30-20h30: have dinner with the group. 

20h30-21h30: check-in with the other stations to verify that everything is occurring with what is expected.

21h30-22h: clean up and prepare themselves to rest during the night.

22h-7h30: sleep.
