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 has a bedroom with six beds. In addition, there is a gym near the bedroom where the astronauts can exercise their muscles. It is necessary because of gravity. There is a shared bathroom with showers and sinks. We have designed a living room and a kitchen where they can spend their free time. A greenhouse will provide vegetables. The first floor is in the area, but the other floors are underground. We can take advantage of the sun and temperature underground with this design.
There is a robot to take samples on the Moon. We use solar panels to provide energy to our Moon Camp.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the lunar poles
Why did you choose this location?
In the South of the Moon, there are two advantages. The first one is that we can use the ice if we need water, and the second one is that there are more hours of sun in this area of the Moon.
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
We hope to build our Moon Camp with Moon materials like regolith. Can a 3D printer be used to do it? We think so.
Recovering the most of water used by the astronauts is a must. In order of this, we need a water treatment plant.
We can also get water from the ice on the poles. It is not easy to obtain it.
Most of the food of our astronauts is from the greenhouse. They have to cultivate it.
It is possible to bring some food from the Earth, but it must be by dust. A 3D printer can give food with different colors and shapes.
There are some solar panels to provide electricity to the Moon Camp. We decided to build our camp in the South of the Moon because it has a lot of hours of Sun.
We can obtain oxygen in the greenhouse from our plants. We can use the hydrolysis of water to get oxygen also. In addition, there is a chemistry experience to convert CO2 into oxygen.
Living in the Camp is a must because the outside is extremely dangerous. They have to dress in a specific suit if they go outside.
We can use mesh to protect from meteorits.
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
I woke up early when I went to the Moon.
Firstly, I went to the kitchen to have breakfast with my partners. Later I went to have a shower and clean my teeth. I had to use the less water as possible.
Secondly, I had to work a little in the laboratory until we had lunch.
In the afternoon, I spent my time doing exercise at the gym. I enjoyed spending my time in the greenhouse also.
One of the things I enjoyed was seeing the Earth from our greenhouse.
It was beautiful!
