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.
1 Our Moon Camp is made up of specific areas for the life and adequate development of two astronauts on the moon, which are interconnected by tubes that will allow them to move around, conserving energy when the regulation of gravity and temperature is activated. Among these is the zone of the bedrooms where they will sleep, a bathroom that will have a water reuse system, a gym to condition their bodies to the new pressure and atmosphere, a greenhouse where they will grow their food, their Investigation room where they will analyze samples and discoveries of the moon and the kitchen where they will store food.
In addition, they will have two main plants, one where the water collected from the craters or reused from waste is conserved, reused, and purified, and the energy plant where the energy collected by the solar panels and minerals or gases found on the moon will be managed.
This “round” shape is used over the spaces because the rounded corners are designed to help distribute pressure on the structure evenly, minimizing the chance of cracking or heating as pressure changes. The material is resistant to radiation and it allows collecting and using sunlight.
Finally, a separate research area will be managed that will be located in the crater for better accessibility for discoveries and experiments with robots and excavation and collection, recording, and transportation machines.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Why did you choose this location?
in a location that allows a balance of darkness and sunlight since portions of the crater rim remain in almost year-round sunlight, while the crater floor is permanently dark.
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
It’d be built with elements from Earth, and some resources from moon with the help of machines, and advantages of the moon’s gravity, must be airtight so that breathable air can be pumped into it without leaks or explosions. Materials must be light, easy to assemble, since they’ll have to work wearing spacesuits, resistant to radiation and meteorites, as polyethylene: excellent protector against radiation graphene, for its flexibility, electric/heat conduction (the most resistant in the world), lunar dust to create solid blocks, and astronaut urine has been proposed for molding thanks to the Urea, the main component of urine.
The water would be obtained using the craters on the cold side which have this frozen water
the food can be brought from the beginning and a greenhouse is built in which it can be stored and you grow more by making an infinite process
the power is obtained from the solar panels that would collect energy from the sun and the stars that are close to it, as soon as the protection will create a type of dome in the room made up of three layers of special,
oxygen is obtained with the lunar rocks that orbit in it, which contain oxygen that could be extracted just like a thin dusty layer that the moon has that contains 50% oxygen that can be used.
the protection will create a type of dome in the room made up of three layers of special, flexible and resistant materials which would protect the camp from asteroids or other dangers from the outside
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
The day begins with the astronauts’ breakfast, after this they would get dressed and go to the plants section to check how they are and to see if any of them need water or anything else, after this they would put on the suit and drive in a car to the research laboratory to review and see how the moon is advancing and what the dark side looks like as well as what they can find, after this they would enter the facilities again to do a little exercise and armor, they would report back to earth to report how is the day going and if there is something new, then they would go to the warehouse to check and count the supplies they have and to the garage to check how the vehicles are (the car-a rover robot and the rocket.) at the end at night they would settle down to sleep and turn off the machines that should not be on.
