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.
Practically our project is based on a lunar camp space designed approximately for two or three people located on the moon that would make a unique experience for campers in addition to being made so that they can survive on the moon with the basic resources that human being needs as an example to have a good hydration or food. Something that characterizes our camp is that it is created with a technology in order not to do physical damage to the land of the moon to preserve it in its natural state. The Moon Camp has a place for spaceships, and is located in a base that allows the camp to be higher, in order to have more solar capacity in the crater for the solar panels.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Why did you choose this location?
We chose the Shackleton crater because it is a good place to put a space station since it has light and at the same time practically permanent darkness inside the crater, this helps us to generate energy constantly with the solar panels in the peaks that border the cráter, the dark side is cold and the peaks of the crater are hot. It has also been proven that inside this crater a large amount of hydrogen is found which benefits our green house for the creation of plants.
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
To build the moon camp first we are going to send some robots to the moon; then the astronauts will arrive and they will give them the necessary materials for the construction; the robots will create this camp. The materials that we are going to use are titanium, aluminum, magnesium and carbon fiber alloys since they are materials resistant to the extreme temperature changes that the moon has, for this same reason we are going to use anti-radiation glass since it is very resistant and useful. Because of these temperature changes we are going to use temperature regulators so that astronauts can live comfortably. Also, like it was said before, the station has a base that allows the camp to be higher in the crater.
in the camp there is a garden that contains several plants because they go through a
process called transpiration and with special machines that the camp has, they take the water
vapor that they produce to a water tank and thus have a supply of drinking water, and the water
that has already been used once is reused in the bathrooms.
some of the food is canned and another part is the crops that are made in the garden,
with the crops you can create various elements up to vegetarian meat that can be made from
grains in order to have fresh and healthy food.
on the outside of the camp there are some solar panels that adapt to the position of
where the sun is in order to obtain energy and supply it to the camp.
as the camp has a garden and specialized machines to obtain water, there is also a machine
that is responsible for obtaining the possible oxygen and supplying it in the camp and this is also
possible thanks to the fact that the machine is responsible for evaporating the water and produces
it in the garden so that the plants can also breathe and produce more water.
the protection of the exterior of space is that the camp is designed from materials
created with elements such as titanium, aluminum, magnesium and copper, and in the glass one
specially designed for the radiation of the sun and the protection of the campitas called Anti
radiation glass. The materials are very resistant to shocks, so if in such a case that the moon has
an impact with an asteroid, the camp will not be so affected.
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
First of all, the astronaut wakes up from the special bed in the dormitory. If the astronaut wants to take a bath, it must be by the water bags that are in the storage, with an sponge and some soap. Then, he will go to the central office to eat something as breakfast with the food named before, put his/her astronaut clothes on, and go by the tubes outside if the objetive is to collect samples of the soil or explore some territory in the Moon. But, at the same time, robots can explore territories the astronauts can’t reach and sent photos and information to the central office, this will reduce time and efford the astronaut can invest in other activities.
If he/she collect samples, the samples will be examinated by the other astronaut in the laboratory and send information by the central office. The other objetive is take care of the greenhouse. The astonaut will go by the tubes and collect food, or water the plants, take a look if the oxygen is correctly working, and take a look at the storage.
There will be spaces for lunch and dinner and exercise their bodies with the machines located in the laboratory so they don’t get used to the absense of gravity. At the end of the day, the atronauts need to have a report of what they discover and do in the day, and send it to the earth by the central office. Finally the astronauts go to bed.
