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

Lunar camp is an activity area for astronauts to survive, explore and meet their basic needs.

The lunar camp should be fully equipped so that astronauts can live for months or more.

Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

I want to build a lunar camp on the Lunar south pole.The reason

why is that the Permanent shadow area exists in there. That means

There maybe plenty of ice water.What’s more,The south of the moon

has longer illumination time in one year.This provides favourable

Conditions for the construction of lunar camp.

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

Considering that some building materials are difficult to transport

into space,I’m going to use the moon’s own dust, gravel, some light

fiber materials to build a lunar camp.These materials can print out the

shape we want through 3D printing technology.

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

There are two main threats to astronauts from the lunar environment.

First,Meteorite falls on the surface of the moon throughout the year.

Second,The surface of the moon is subject to strong solar radiation.

My lunar camp is equipped with a polyethylene sunshade, which can not

only block radiation, but also avoid meteorite impact.

Explain how your Moon Camp will provide the astronauts with:

First,we can recycling all water resources through water circulation system.
Second,By some chemical methods.

Because of the sunshine on the moon, we can grow fruits and vegetables.

Solar energy is converted into electricity by solar panels

Growing algae is a good way to get oxygen.In addition, lunar campsites can
 produce oxygen by heating and filtering lunar soil.

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

In order to better carry out astronomical observation and other scientific activities.

It will lay a foundation for exploring the vast space in the future. What’s more, It will also

contribute to the development of Space Science.

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

In the morning, the astronauts get up and have a special breakfast.After that,

Astronauts will do exercise on equipment in the camp to keep fit.Then, astronauts can go

out and explore.After lunch, astronauts will report to scientists on earth.Near the evening,

astronauts can show life to people on earth through video or live broadcast, and do interesting

science popularization.
