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.

Project description

Our project has a laboratory for oxygen and water from lunar soil, has a vegetable garden to which nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium have been added for fertilization.

To obtain energy we have a solar garden.

And a gym to keep all the inhabitants in shape to compensate the difference due to gravity.

All the walls of the living areas are thick enough to avoid radiation.

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

To optimize the time of exposure to the sun each day and thus have as much energy as possible at our disposal

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

Our plan is to make a series of unmanned trips sending all the minimum necessary materials and once everything is there send a team of robots and astronauts for the final construction. Taking advantage of a circular use of all materials, both organic and inorganic.

Crops and astronaut habits:
To have food on the moon we need to grow crops.
On the moon it is possible to grow plants in the lunar soil and the most suitable crops
would be tomatoes and wheat.
The problem is the absence of nitrogen on the moon, which is essential for plant
growth.
If we can be self-sufficient on the moon, the astronauts will have a largely plant-based
diet in addition to the food that can be carried on the rocket.
Astronauts have a gymnasium to train and stay healthy.

Our lunar base will need between 75kW to 90kW.
We have chosen to use solar panels as this is one of the most efficient ways of
obtaining power, although another option would be to use nuclear reactors or
radioisotope thermal generators.
The best option would be to locate the base at the north or south pole so that the solar
panels would receive constant sunlight.

We can separate the water from the gases produced and the residual methane, an
objective that is achieved through various industrial processes. Finally, oxygen can be
extracted through a process called electrolysis, in which electricity is used to split the
elements of a compound. By-products such as methane and hydrogen are recycled
into the system and retain their usefulness.
In addition, solid by-products from the system can be used in addition to the water and
oxygen laboratories on the Moon.

To prevent radiation from being a problem for our lunar expedition, we have built the
various buildings with fairly thick walls to protect us.

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

Taking into account that lunar days last 28 Earth days, we have some clocks adapted to Chinese time (the new world power), but in general after a good breakfast of concentrated bars we go to the lunar school, where they explain us how it would be to live on Earth. The mathematics are unfortunately the same, they do not change. At recess in the evening times we learn astronomy because we see all the stars. And after school, we go to the conceptual music academy because in space you can’t hear anything.
