Do you want to learn more about space exploration and 3D design?
These webinars with space experts provide an exciting overview about the:
– Past, present and future Moon exploration missions;
– How to use Tinkercad and Fusion 360 to design your Moon Camp;
– The challenges of being an astronaut, with ESA astronauts.
Meet the experts
2019/20 Moon Camp winners webinar with ESA astronauts
ESA astronauts Samantha Cristoforetti and Luca Parmitano join the 2019/20 Moon Camp Challenge winning teams for a 1-hour webinar. Connecting from all over the world, the teams have their questions answered live by the ESA astronauts.
Resources on the Moon
It’s common knowledge that the Moon is a cratered ball of rock. Stunning as it is in the night sky or in photographs taken from orbit the landscape is barren, grey, dusty and dark. Are there other things to be found than meets the eye? Moon scientist Alexandre Meurisse explains which resources can be found on the Moon.
3D Printing on the Moon
We can 3D print just about anything these days, from tools and buildings to cells and even food. But that’s on Earth, where materials are readily available. What about in space or on the Moon? Could we 3D print a lunar base? ESA engineer Advenit Makaya walks us through the process.
Living on the Moon
The Apollo Mission proved humans can work on the lunar surface but the longest lunar spacewalk lasted a total of 22 hours. Could humans spend longer amounts of time on the Moon? How about live there, as they do on the International Space Station? Lunar technology expert Bérengère Houdou describes living on the Moon.
Future Moon exploration
Though it has been fifty years since humans first stepped on the Moon, we haven’t forgotten about Earth’s natural satellite. Several missions since Apollo have taught us so much about the Moon and have paved the way for humankind to return. ESA Moon scientist James Carpenter gives us an overview of these missions and future exploration of the Moon.
Join the Moon Camp Challenge!
ESA - European Space Agency astronaut Matthias Maurer invites students all over the world to participate in the Moon Camp Challenge and design their own Moon settlement with a 3D modelling tool (Tinkercad or Fusion 360).
Moon Camp is an education project run in collaboration between ESA and the Airbus Foundation, in partnership with Autodesk and it is open to students up to 18 years old.
Webinar 2018/2019 – Where next? The past, present and future Moon exploration missions
James Carpenter, from ESA’s Human and Robotics Exploration Directorate, working in areas focussing on space exploration, will give an overview of the lunar exploration efforts that have been done so far and discuss why space agencies believe returning to the Moon is the next stepping stone in space exploration.
Webinar 2018/2019 – Design your own moon camp
Mark Chester, Autodesk Academic Partner and 3D Design Expert, will show how to use 3D modelling software to help you design your camp on the Moon.
One single webinar will be provided for teachers and teams applying to Moon Camp’s
2018/2019 Moon Camp Winners Webinar With ESA Astronaut Tim Peake
The teams behind the 12 winning projects of the Moon Camp Challenge 2018-2019 were invited to participate in a live webinar with European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake
