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.
At the moment, the fact that our world is approaching its gradual extinction puts scientists on the path of solution. Our aim is to be one of these solutions. Of course, there is no planet with the living conditions in our world among the places we can reach. We are planning to set up our camp on our moon, which is the easiest to reach among other places, to create and adapt to these conditions, and to send our two astronauts to the moon to do their research in the camp to make preliminary preparations for our purposes.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the lunar poles
Why did you choose this location?
We hope to meet our water needs thanks to ice, which is one of our primary reasons for the presence of ice water in the polar region of the Moon. The second reason is that it is suitable for the construction site and has a more solid structure compared to other parts of the moon, which will ensure that the foundations of the structures are solid.
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
The first preparations will be made by unmanned vehicles, while they will find the suitable area for construction in the region, and they will prepare the area for the structures and lay the foundation. Our first priority as a material is that it is both easy to find and portable, so we thought of using aluminum, it will benefit us because it is metal, light and easy to process. Besides, we are considering using perlite. Besides, since it is an artificial material, it will be easy to obtain, and because it is light, it will reduce the dead load of the building and protect it against a possible earth crust shaking.
Thanks to the tanks on the left side of the camp, we can meet our water needs. When it is depleted, we extract it from the Moon and supply it.
We can meet our plant food needs in the greenhouse we built in our camp. Thanks to the richness of the soil in the greenhouse in terms of minerals and vitamins, the plants grown are also enriched in terms of nutrients. When the soil loses its properties in terms of minerals, vitamins and water, we can meet this need thanks to the warehouses we install in the greenhouse.
Thanks to the solar panels we mount on the lunar surface, we will both generate the necessary energy for our work tools and provide the necessary energy to the research devices and tools in the center. At the same time, we can store this energy in chargers such as batteries with the machine next to the solar panels.
Some of the oxygen will be obtained from the underground water and some of it will be supplied from the earth. Thanks to the vehicle we have invented, it will both separate the oxygen from the water and combine it with nitrogen and other gases and obtain a homogeneous mixture, and then it will be sent to both the greenhouse tank and the research center through these pipes, and will provide the astronauts with the necessary air.
Thanks to our vehicle with a satellite receiver, we are informed about the dangers before they reach us. and we protect our vehicles. At the same time, we are protected from radiation thanks to the aluminum we use in our clothes and in our base.
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
Astronauts at our moon base start their day by waking up at 8 o’clock and doing stretches. They start the day in a vigorous way by doing the movements they do regularly. After they take their breakfast from the supply depot around 8.30, they go to the research area and do their daily research. they do the data they get from the lunar surface, some parts and so on, with a task distribution for about 3 hours. After that, at 12 o’clock they go and inspect their greenhouse. They write a report after they collect data such as the condition of the plants and their growth rates and collect the existing crops. After completing the report by 13.00, they eat their lunch. They take a break for 1 hour after the meal. At 15.00 they connect to the base on earth, where they share their data with the world. They hold a meeting for about 2 hours. At 5 pm they go to the study room to repair and maintain the spacecraft. Together they finish this by dinner and have dinner at 19.30. After tidying up the base, they are free to hang out with their friends at the moon base until 22.30 and go to bed at 22.30.
