Moon Camp Pioneers Gallery 2021-2022

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 an outpost on the moon that can collect and develop lunar soil, as well as a range of scientific experiments,and remain habitable throughout the lunar cycle.The interior of our camp is made up of a six-element ring of carbon nanotubes,which protects astronauts from large amounts of radiation without the need for extensive digging on the lunar surface.Outside the camp there are high energy reactors, mining trucks, signal stations, water circulation systems, etc.We use a high energy reactor to participate in the fusion reactor reaction,with hydrogen generated by the decomposition of water ice as the main energy source to ensure sufficient available energy.The camp has a hall, scientific research room, ecology room, decompression room, restaurant, gym and other places, which can meet the living needs of multiple astronauts.In addition, the camp is equipped with an intelligent transportation system to transport all necessary supplies to the designated location,while air and water circulation devices are connected to various departments through the camp’s piping system,so that air can be transported to various areas,as the astronauts can move freely as on Earth.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

Our lunar base takes ensuring human survival and development as the main goal, so we plan to land at the Canbeus impact crater (29.42 ° E, 83.88 ° S) in the south pole of the moon and establish the lunar base, because this area has sufficient water ice resources to meet the survival needs of astronauts, the temperature difference here is the smallest, and there is a permanent lighting area, Part of the impact crater is relatively flat and can provide landing points. It is an area suitable for establishing a long-term residential base.

2.2 How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Describe the techniques, materials and your design choices.

For the construction of the site, we try to use local materials.As a result, the construction material for the base is made from lunar soil mixed with urea, and the outer layer is in the form of 3D printing, saving materials.We use an extremely thin six-membered ring nanofilm as an inner layer to resist radiation.Most furniture can be 3D printed.After the completion of the center hall of the base, astronauts can rest normally, and build the buildings and materials of each function room in turn.These materials can be made from lunar soil mixed with urea.The mixture has good ductility and is easy to manufacture.

2.3 The environment on the Moon is very dangerous for the astronauts. Explain how your Moon Camp will protect them. (maximum 150 words)

The construction of the inner layer of our camp uses a six-element ring structure of carbon nanotubes to resist the erosion of radiation, so as to protect the normal operation of electrical appliances, to provide protection for the work and life of astronauts, in the personal health of astronauts, we are also equipped with a special genetically modified lettuce which expresses a fusion protein to prevent the bone loss of astronauts.

2.4 Explain how your Moon Camp will provide the astronauts with:

We will use a lunar rover to mine water ice at the South Pole of the moon and bring it back to the moon. Water ice will be converted into water through distillation and waste water will be treated into usable water using water recycling devices.Separately stored in water storage tanks, and automatically bottling, packaging,and then transported to the desired location by intelligent transportation rail.

When we reach the moon for the first time, we will make the astronauts eat the food of space from the earth, and after completion of construction of ecological space,which makes use of the incubator of hydroponics and LED lights provide some seeds light source to cultivate the earth, when the ecological chamber system judge their mature, can be automatically collected and through the intelligent rail transport to the restaurant,cooking by robots,The astronauts will be able to choose their own dishes,which will then be brought to them on a smart orbit.

We will use helium-3 extracted from lunar soil mined by the lunar rover to participate in nuclear fusion reactor reactions, and the hydrogen energy produced by decomposing water ice will be used as the main way to obtain energy.

By using the water ice collected by the lunar rover to produce oxygen, we can also decompose the excess water into oxygen, and collect the carbon dioxide produced by breathing to make an oxygen circulation device by converting carbon dioxide into oxygen.

2.5 Explain what would be the main purpose of your Moon Camp.

Our camp was established as a scientific base to explore more of the roles of lunar soil and to try to use functions such as water production, oxygen production and lunar soil power generation on the moon, as well as to explore other functions of lunar soil. We also have an eco-room where we can study how more plants can grow on the moon.

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

The astronauts were divided into two groups, staggered sleep hours, and took turns working.This ensures that at least half the camp is awake in case of an emergency and also improves productivity.Sleep is important for astronauts’ health and productivity, so don’t get too little sleep.The first crew will sleep from 23:00 to 8:00.After getting up, astronauts can use the waiting time to do simple washing after choosing breakfast, which is prepared in the automatic kitchen and then transported to the table by automatic rail.To prevent loss of muscle and bone mass due to the low-gravity environment, astronauts work out in the gym for an hour at around 9 a.m. every day.At about 10:00 hours, the astronauts arrived at the scientific research room to check whether the infrastructure and control equipment were working properly before starting the first round of work and research and considering how to further study and utilize lunar resources.At about 12 o ‘clock, the astronauts went to the cafeteria for lunch.After lunch, the astronauts can take a nap.Around 14:00, the astronauts will go to the ecology room to check the greenhouse management system and observe the growth of plants.From 15:00-18:00, the astronauts will mainly use the extraveular spacesuit placed in the decompression chamber to reach the lunar surface through the hatch for team projects.According to the day’s mission, astronauts will use mining trucks to collect lunar soil and transport it to high-energy reactors for nuclear fusion;Or collect water ice and transport it to the air and water recycling system for oxygen and water.After that, they will have dinner and then do some fun and relaxing activities to brighten up the day.Around 21:00, the astronauts will communicate via video conference with the earth crew to summarize the day’s work and tomorrow’s mission plan.After the summing up, the astronauts call it a day to rest.The second shift was similar but 12 hours later than the first.
