Moon Camp Pioneers Gallery 2020-2021

In Moon Camp Pioneers each team’s mission is to 3D design a complete Moon Camp using Fusion 360. 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

Different capsules perform different duties.Astronauts live in special capsules, which can be used to support a variety of life activities.During the day, the screen can display various indicators for early warning purposes.

Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

In places with large distances between craters on the moon, capsule equipment could be built in the craters, making the flat ground easier for camp expansion and astronaut activities.

How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Describe the techniques and materials you would use.

We choose corrosion-resistant, heat-resistant and radiation-resistant materials with high hardness to build the base.

The environment on the Moon is very dangerous for the astronauts. Explain how your Moon Camp will protect them.

First of all, the big screen can display the changes of various parameters, which can warn some dangerous information.The capsule contains enough material to sustain the astronauts.

Explain how your Moon Camp will provide the astronauts with:

According to the research of a few years ago, there is a large amount of ice water in the polar regions of the moon, and we have designed a lunar camp that can carry mining equipment, mine ice water in the polar regions of the moon, and convert it into liquid water through a series of devices in the camp.

In the camp, there is a constant temperature nursery cabin, which can grow some vegetables in the cabin to provide vitamins for people living in the camp. In addition, some microorganisms such as worms can be raised in the cabin to play the role of decomposing, so as to keep the ecological balance in the cabin.

Solar photovoltaic panels are installed on the roof of the cabin, which can absorb light energy from time to time and convert it into electric energy to supply the daily needs of human life. As mentioned above, ice water is found, which can be decomposed to produce hydrogen as part of daily energy.

The collected water can be broken down into oxygen, and the plants in the incubator can also produce oxygen through photosynthesis, which can be separated from other mixed gases, together for human use.

Explain what would be the main purpose of your Moon Camp (for example: commercial, scientific, and/or tourist purposes).

Is mainly used in business and science, when we have the ability to achieve all this, the progress of science should be has reached a certain level, then we should consider the human interest in the moon, the camp into available for human recreation of the outer world, satisfy human curiosity, a vacation on the moon, and see the world outside the earth, to feel different amorous feelings, look at the broad universe, feel our own smallness.

Describe a day on the Moon for your Moon Camp astronaut crew.

Astronauts wake up from the capsule, can smell the fragrance of photosynthesis of green grass, through the machine to wear a good space suit, go out to see whether the various machines are operating normally, do some research, do some entertainment, etc.
