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 is going to be used for future living on the moon, our second choice is going to be for research to send back to earth and to learn new things about life on the moon for example using regolith to power cars and our moon buggy. Our moon base is going to be great for long term stay we have made this building stable for at least four astronauts. Our team have made a workspace (also used for a research room),greenhouse, two bedrooms, medical room, living room and garage as well as solar panels for collecting energy.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
On the far side of the Moon
Why did you choose this location?
We think it would be great to put our base on the far side of the moon because it attracts the most sunlight to power our moon base with renewable energy collected by our range of solar panels located on the roof of the garage and we do not need to waste the energy of a power cable.
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
We will use strong metal and plastics like titanium and polycarbonate. Our base has metal wood, bronze and carbon steel thick walls so that if a meteor comes and hits the moon we would be okay .
Luna water is the water that is available on the moon, eventually the water vapor is broken down by the sunlight, leaving hydrogen and oxygen lost to outer space. To provide our astronauts with water you can melt Luna ice to form water, you can filter your urine to produce liquid for the astronauts .
To provide our astronauts with food you freeze dry it and place it into a vacuum chamber, space food comes in biodegradable and compostable packaging in order to provide vitamins, amino acids, minerals, proteins, fibre, carbohydrates and nitrogen. We also have a greenhouse to give us healthy fruit and vegetables
Our base has solar panels on top of the garage roof. The meaning of our base on the far side of the moon is because it provides more sunlight to power our green house needs the most sunlight for our plants to grow.
Using Electrolysis to extract oxygen from minerals Nitrogen must be supplied from Earth because there is not enough on the moon. The astronauts will have oxygen tanks on the backs of their suits.
Our base has got airlocks to make sure our supplies don’t fly away. Our base has got airlocks to make sure our supplies don’t fly away. Our base has metal wood,bronze and carbon steel thick walls so that if a meteor comes and hits the moon we would be okay .
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
We have made the days on the moon the same as days on the earth to make it more simple!
7:30am: wake up
7:50am: have a shower (use dry/no wash shampoo)
8:00am: have breakfast
8:15am: get some fruit and veg from the greenhouse
8:25am: toilet time
8:30am: get ready for the day
8:40am: zoom with earth
9:00am: lab research.
2pm lab research and sample collection.
3.30pm satellite call with earth base and research scientists
