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

Our lunar camp is a studio that integrates agriculture, chemical industry, and information technology. The entire studio is composed of three small areas and one large area, including the functions of solar power generation and power storage, as well as oxygen production and storage. The factory, computer room and rocket launch control station, as well as basic living facilities such as three-dimensional agriculture and rest areas.

Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

It has enough sunshine, wide vision, rich resources and products, which can guarantee the safety of life. Built on the poles of the moon, it can collect as much water ice as possible and can provide a lot of hydrogen and oxygen fuel.

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

The use of new energy and new materials can effectively isolate radiation to protect people’s lives.

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

The rest area should be made into a radiation protection shed with stowage bags.

Explain how your Moon Camp will provide the astronauts with:

We bring water from the earth in the early stage, and then collect ice to transform it into water.

In the early stage, the food brought from the earth can be used to make the transition, and then the lunar camp can build a planting room to self-sufficiency and grow food for human survival.

We can use large-area solar panels to generate electricity, while the waste heat from high-temperature electrolysis can still be used for thermal power generation.

Using the high-temperature electrolysis method, the study found that the moon soil contains oxygen-rich minerals, so let it melt in the electrolysis chamber, and then click the melt, and the oxygen will be separated from the melt. This method avoids the electrolysis of water to produce oxygen. The problem of excessive energy consumption; at the same time, the lunar camp is also equipped with a plant planting room, which combines the two to produce double oxygen.

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

Working&Science&Rest&Energy Supply

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

When the astronauts finished their long journey, they came to the moon service area for a day’s rest. Here we can provide sufficient oxygen, electricity, and fresh vegetables and fruits that you can’t taste during cosmic voyages. Our place has beautiful greenery and plenty of rest space, giving astronauts the opportunity to lie down and rest that is rare in space. Here we have more convenient communication tools, hundreds of computer equipment, so that astronauts can communicate with their families on earth at any time. During the break, it’s okay to open a few classic books to eliminate the loneliness in the unmanned universe. In the hydroponic farm, astronauts can do their hobbies to pick crops and feel like returning to the earth.
