Project description

Our lunar camp is composed of residential area, energy collection area, experimental area and central control room. It is built with specially treated lunar soil, that is, the “magmatic structure” proposed by Karri, which can not only reduce the construction cost, but also obtain a steady stream of raw materials and lay a good foundation for the further development of the lunar camp. The second is to solve the problem of human survival. Fresh water and oxygen are the necessary living conditions for human beings. Although astronauts on the space station can be recycled into pure water through urine and domestic water, according to the 120 grams of water per ton of lunar soil revealed by Chang’e V, they can obtain oxygen by electrolyzing minerals in the lunar regolith, which makes life more comfortable. However, such a process requires a lot of energy. We can use a large amount of helium-3 reaction in the lunar soil to provide energy. Helium-3 does not produce neutrons in the fusion process, so the radioactivity is small, and the reaction process is easy to control. It is not only environmentally friendly and safe, but also provides basic power demand by converting light energy into electric energy through solar panels. Finally, use the lunar rover to take soil and rock for further research, and cultivate vegetables in the cultivation area of the laboratory to solve our food problems.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

We want to build the lunar camp in the lunar polar region. It can maintain smooth communication with the earth; Good lighting conditions can make full use of solar energy; Meet the needs of preparing life sustaining consumables such as oxygen and water; There are abundant resources around, which can meet the needs of lunar resources research and utilization; The terrain is relatively wide and flat, which is conducive to the take-off and landing of spacecraft. And 70% ~ 80% of the time is under sunlight. The solar cell can provide sufficient power for the lunar base. The temperature difference in the polar region is small, and a large number of lunar seas are distributed in the polar region.

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


We are committed to building a self-sufficient lunar camp to provide a foothold for mankind to explore further goals. We will use a new “magma structure” proposed by Karri (melting lunar soil with focused sunlight to produce a flexible material that can be carved into devices) to build our base. At the same time, 3D printing technology can also be used to print components, and then build a lunar camp. At the same time, the lunar sand and rock rich in elements are used to obtain the required resources such as oxygen and fresh water. He-3 in the lunar soil is mined for nuclear fusion to provide energy for the camp. Solar panels are used for power supply, radar signal tower is used to establish contact with the earth, and has a comfortable living area. The lunar exploration vehicle is used to take ore to further study the sustainable development of the base.


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

Our camp is committed to building a safe and environmentally friendly lunar camp. First of all, the outermost layer of the whole camp is made of anti radiation materials to minimize the radiation to astronauts. After that, the structure of the camp was reinforced and part of the camp was located below the ground to ensure that the astronauts were not injured by the impact of small meteorites. The whole camp is wrapped with phase change thermostatic materials to maintain a constant and comfortable temperature in the camp, which is used to resist the temperature difference between day and night of the moon. In addition, in order to deal with emergencies, the camp is equipped with emergency escape routes and escape pods. The escape route has its own independent power supply and control, which can still be used even if the camp energy is damaged. When escaping, the astronauts directly enter the spacecraft’s sleep chamber, and the spacecraft will automatically navigate back to earth. Provide safe food for astronauts through self generated ecological areas.

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

The lunar soil and rocks are taken by the mining vehicle and transported to the energy module through the underground transportation system. The fresh water is decomposed into fresh water through the energy module and stored. The water is sent to the place where water is needed through the underground pipeline, that is, the ecosystem entering the lunar camp. The water in the ecosystem can be recycled indefinitely.

The lunar camp has its own ecosystem, which can bring plant seeds from the earth and plant them in the plant warehouse. Provide people with fresh vegetables. For meat eating astronauts, they can bring meat from the earth, or they can take animals to eat after fattening up on the moon.Provide fresh vegetables. For meat eating astronauts, they can bring meat from the earth, or they can take animals to eat after fattening up on the moon.

The lunar soil and rocks are taken by the mining vehicle and transported to the energy cabin through the underground transportation system. Through the energy cabin, they produce oxygen through electrolytic water. At the same time, the photosynthesis of plants is used to absorb CO2 and maintain the oxygen balance in the air. Oxygen is still transported by our underground pipelines.

The lunar soil and rocks are taken by mining vehicles, transported to the energy tank through an underground transportation system, and through the energy tank they are electrolyzed to produce oxygen while using the photosynthesis of plants to absorb CO2 and maintain the oxygen balance in the air. Oxygen is still transported by our underground pipelines.

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

The lunar camp we built is mainly for scientific research. The construction of the camp meets the needs of astronauts living on the moon for a long time. At the same time, the moon uses the plant changes under low gravity to develop more high-yield and more favorable plants for people. At the same time, we can conduct scientific research on the rich energy materials and unknown materials of the moon to facilitate the development and utilization of lunar resources.


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

Man’s base on the moon has been built, and many astronauts have arrived on the moon from the earth

“Good morning!” “Have breakfast together”. The astronaut on the spore bed stretched out to say hello to another astronaut. When he saw the delicious food, he was in high spirits immediately. With the “Chang’e” smart home robot constantly bringing food, music and lights to the table to create a “sense of atmosphere”, our astronauts ended their breakfast with laughter and went to the medical module for a comprehensive inspection.

“Turn on the switch first, then click…” the astronaut in front of the video operated the medical module while explaining to the children on earth. After that, the astronauts entered the laboratory and got the energy mined by the mining vehicle through the underground transportation system. After being tested by precision instruments, they got a lot of data and transmitted them to the earth for high-intensity calculation. Then our astronauts will have an exchange of the latest discoveries in front of the holographic projector. After completing the daily experimental tasks, our astronauts can choose to go to the fitness cabin for fitness, play billiards in the living cabin, exercise in VR realistic simulation environment, go to the laboratory to see flowers, take care of vegetables and fruits, etc.

Then comes dinner time. The water used in dinner is most likely the water drunk in the morning, because the water is recycled in the camp. The domestic garbage in the camp will be collected together, and after sorting, it will enter the microbial decomposition and recycling bin. After microbial decomposition, it will generate organic fertilizer for reuse. Before going to bed at night, our astronauts will conduct another comprehensive examination to transmit all body data back to earth, as well as the latest experimental report and all conditions of the lunar base. Then you can lie on the spore massage bed and have a beautiful dream.

In order to prevent our astronauts from being mentally hurt by threats from foreign creatures, we are equipped with an intelligent mental stress mediation robot, which will regulate them through their deep thinking performance. Some astronauts may have special requirements, such as the need for a church, physical inconvenience or special circumstances. Our astronauts can use a 3D printer to print out what they need.

This is the day when the astronauts are at the lunar camp.
