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

The lunar camp plan is mainly inclined to the level of tourism, and the main purpose is to travel, so that everyone who travels to the moon can feel better about the moon in a comfortable and safe living environment.

Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

Near the crater at the south pole of the moon. Because the moon is small and moving slowly, it is easy to travel on the moon in sync with the sun, and near the poles, the speed required to retain sunlight is low. The white plane is the plane of the moon’s orbit around the earth, and there is an angle of 5.145396 degrees between the white plane and the ecliptic plane. So there are some areas at the south pole of the moon that are close to being permanently illuminated by the sun, and craters produce more solid water.

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

Mainly using the resources available on the moon, the moon’s micrometeorites drive straight in, hitting the moon at speeds of up to 30 kilometers per second, which generates a lot of heat and melts the lunar soil, which condenses into tiny glassy matter. With a high temperature of more than 100 degrees Celsius in half a month and a low temperature of minus 180 degrees Celsius in half a month, the particles of lunar soil are very fine due to thermal expansion and cold shrinkage, with a diameter of between 5 microns and 15 microns, which is easier to use than cement. At the same time, solar power will be used to generate heat to further melt the lunar soil and build more stable materials. In the design process, I incorporated a more diverse color, using the high technology on the earth, to collect the satellite wreckage that has always been abandoned on the lunar surface, and further deal with myself and make use of it.

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

A synchronous satellite is built on the lunar surface to monitor unknown dangers in space, which can transmit signals to the lunar base and establish the exchange of information between the moon and the earth. at the same time, the building walls on the moon are double-layer walls melted and solidified at high temperature, and the material is very strong to protect astronauts from being hit by meteorites.

Explain how your Moon Camp will provide the astronauts with:

There is a large amount of solid water near the crater on the moon (when the internal pressure is too high, the water will burst out and the newly formed water will be ejected in the form of gas), and scientists at (NASA) of NASA have published a study on the Daily Science Network that they believe that rocks on the moon have the conditions to make water. In the meantime, astronauts can get enough water through some simple chemical synthesis.

In the farming room, the whole wall is made of special glass and makes full use of solar energy. the farming room is connected to the central energy room, and the energy room can also provide a certain light source for it.

The energy chamber can burn for power generation (burning domestic waste), surface solar panels, absorb light energy, and convert light energy into various kinds of power.

The plants in the farming room purify the air during photosynthesis, accompanied by a certain amount of air circulation to purify the air.

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

The main purpose is to travel, so that everyone who travels to the moon can feel better about the moon in a comfortable and safe living environment.

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

From 6: 30 to 07:30 in the morning, I get up to wash and exercise, from 8 to 9 to have dinner, from 9 to 11:00, I drive a plane to explore the periphery of the camp, and take a detailed look at the scenery of the moon. If you find any lunar garbage, you need to record the detailed coordinates, return to the camp at 11:00, share and discuss what you saw before, and have lunch from 12:00 to 1: 00.Take a nap from 1.00 to 2.00, take a nap from 2.00 to 3.00, go to the farming room, water the crops at the same time, drive the lunar rover to the previously recorded location to collect lunar garbage, let passengers have more fun in the process of collection, 6.00 to 7.00 go back to camp for dinner, 7.00 to 8.00 for proper exercise.8.00 to 10.00 passengers can arrange to do something to go to bed after 10.00
