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.
We have made our project to discover and understand the moon and its materials. Our group have made a base out of tungsten, niobium, molybdenum, and sapphire to make sure when the explorers stay inside their shelter they will be safe from meteorites, heat radiation and air pressure we will also have a system monitoring the heat and air pressure. Our moon camp is called Discovery Camp the reason why we named it that is because we have made it to go to the moon and discover the moon and its materials.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the lunar poles
Why did you choose this location?
The main reason is to discover the icy presence of one of the poles of the lunar surface. It helps us because the sun’s radiation is much lower than the lunar equator.It will make the chemicals not work so hard so it will protect the camp. Proximity to crater will allow exploration of the area.We chose this location because the sun’s radiation is lower than the equator and no meteorites have hit that area so it will be safe .
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
We will use titanium and Tungsten to built the majority of our camp as it is very strong and has a high tensile strength. The oxygen and Co2 tanks will be made from Titanium and so will the fuel tanks.
We have researched that the soil on the moon can be transferred into water .
We have created a greenhouse for food and you could also take some animals and breed them .
We have installed solar panels for energy and power
We have carried O2 in containers and when run out another container will come to replace.
We have so many materials they are protective and meteorites can not hit it if they do they will not go through our moon camp but create a loud thump
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
We chose the commander because of his fairly responsible position.
