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.
We think that our model of a Moon Camp could provide a safe space for living. Each of the building has its name. We built a Cappuccino – a living space, a Moony – the greenhouse, a Duck – a moon lander and Sirius – ICT centre with a power plant , We put a lot of effort and creativeness into this project. Every detail has been thought, such as energy supply and oxygen production. Hope you like our design.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the lunar poles
Why did you choose this location?
We chose the South Pole because it is the most investigated region on the Moon. Besides that it is known that we could find ice water close to the lunar poles.
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
Most of the buildings are made of aluminium. All the buildings will be made with a 3-D printer that would come in our moon lander (the Duck). The 3D printer can produce all the material quickly without having to wait for the next shuttle from Earth.
A Duck: a moon lander that brings the necessary material needed for life on the Moon such as food, water, building material etc. We have to process the ice water that can be found on lunar poles to get the liquid water.
A Moony: This greenhouse is designed to sustain a vegetarian diet for astronauts. Explorers will grow different vegetables, fruit, coffee beans, trees etc. They will also grow plants for replenishing the air.
A Sirius: This is a technological, communication and energy centre. Our Moon village is powered by solar energy that is why we put solar panels on the top of the Sirius.
As we wrote in the Food section we would produce and replenish the air using greenhouse.
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
Moon Camp astronauts will spend their free time in the main building called A Cappuccino. This is a living space. It is the main base on the Moon. Astronauts will sleep and spend their free time inside the Cappuccino building. They will have to take care of the plants growing inside the greenhouse and they have to be in contact with the astronomers on Earth by using the communication centre.
