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

The project is intended to be a landmark base for human colonization of the moon, which will be the first large, semi-self-sufficient base on the moon, with necessary cargo to be transported from Earth.  The base will become a window to the universe.  It is divided into two large modules: industrial resource area and residential research area.

The industrial zone will provide sufficient resources for the residential area to support the entire base’s living and research needs.  The residential area is divided into three layers. The first layer is hidden underground for physical, chemical and biological research and is not open to the public.  At the same time, as a large tourist base, the leisure and entertainment area on the second floor and the medical area on the third floor are also essential. At the same time, the whole base will adopt holographic projection technology so that every passenger and astronaut can enjoy the beauty of the moon at any time.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

The poles of the moon are geographical locations that offer many advantages in space exploration.  We will establish our lunar base on the northern rim of Piri Crater.  First, as the crater closest to the moon’s North Pole, it is almost constantly illuminated, creating an environment with relatively stable temperatures.  Second, the study suggests that the nearly constant shaded areas may contain frozen water, which could represent relatively primitive comet or asteroid material that has existed on the moon for millions or billions of years.  We can tap this frozen water and use it for scientific experiments, and we can also use it for drinking water.

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

We will use the fusion spacecraft for material transportation.  The first phase of the project: the lunar spacecraft will transport astronauts, basic materials and construction equipment to the moon for the construction of a lunar base, and build a temporary camp before the construction of a nuclear power plant in the moon camp.  The second phase will use the energy of nuclear fusion nuclear power plant to use 3D printers and other high-energy equipment to build the lunar soil as the material for infrastructure construction, while using high-energy materials to optimize its radiation insulation and sealing.  And the construction of industrial zone for the use of the base to provide security.  The third phase of the base will be used in succession to transport needed materials by spacecraft, and eventually put into operation.

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

When we selected designs and materials for the lunar base, we considered radiation, meteorites, and high temperature fluctuations.  Therefore, the walls are made of titanium.  In addition to its low thermal conductivity and excellent mechanical strength, titanium is flexible, durable and impact-resistant, which means our astronauts are protected from high temperature fluctuations and meteorites.  For the same reason, we will use transparent silicate fiberglass instead of ordinary glass, we will use high radiation resistant materials for the construction of the camp shell, and install radar and high energy laser cannons to detect and destroy the incoming meteorites, to protect the camp.  And a negative pressure chamber at the exit is designed to buffer the camp from the huge internal and external pressure difference when opening the door.

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

:After the base was built, we mined the frozen water near the base, melted it through the enormous heat generated by the nuclear power plant and filtered it for storage and use at the base.  After that, all the water is filtered through the purification system and reused, and the organic matter is extracted and stored in the fermentation system to extract the elements needed for plant growth to provide nutrients.   

Subsisting mainly on a plant-based diet, with extra meat and protein sourced from earth.  Vegetables will be grown by botanists in greenhouses where we grow potatoes, green beans and soybeans for carbohydrates, sugar, calcium and fiber, vitamins A, K, C.  Ongoing research will also be carried out to develop vegetables and fruits suitable for growing on the moon to meet the needs of astronauts and tourists.

At this moment, human beings have mastered controlled nuclear fusion technology. We builded a small nuclear fusion Power plant in the moon camp to provide energy for the base, and use frozen water to cool the nuclear Power plant, and provide water and heating for the base.  But we will use solar panels to power the camp during the initial phase of construction, but not after the nuclear power plant.  

During the construction period, we mainly rely on oxygen brought from earth and water electrolysis to produce oxygen. After the completion of the nuclear power plant, we can also use the huge heat generated by the nuclear power plant to extract Air from the lunar soil through molten salt electrolysis process.  Since pure oxygen can not breathe, we will purify the extracted oxygen and transform it into breathable oxygen through the oxygen concentration adjustment equipment.  Breathable air is made up of only 20% oxygen, 2% carbon dioxide and 78% nitrogen.  

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

Commercial: We will generate revenue through tourism. Due to the special nature of lunar camp, lunar tourism will be very hot and very expensive. We will work with some earth companies and allow them to carry out some projects in the lunar camp to generate revenue.

Scientific research: The high-energy laboratory hidden underground will carry out some physical, biological and chemical research on the moon that cannot be done on Earth, and the money earned from tourism development will be invested in the laboratory to carry out research and benefit mankind.  And can reduce certain capital consumption to realize open source throttling.

Infrastructure: to lay a foundation for the future human colonization of the moon, the use of lunar rover and other exploration and can provide data for the Earth, for human into the solar system to lay a foundation.

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

Research astronauts: They will have strict schedules and work schedules to keep them healthy.  They will get up at 7:00 in the morning to exercise and eat after breakfast will study work at 8:00 in the morning, they will be in charge of in their biology, physics, chemistry of lunar environment scientific research, it will be the human a landmark study, they work to rest in the afternoon after 12:00 noon then in 18:  00 to rest before 22:00 in the evening, during their rest time they can have free activities, they can use the facilities in the base for leisure and entertainment.

Technical astronauts: They are divided into technical positions according to their areas of expertise. Their working hours are not fixed because they are responsible for the maintenance and overhaul of the equipment of the whole base, as well as detecting the changes in the environment of the base and detecting unsafe factors. Because of the nature of the work, their every day is full of unknown and challenges.  They are the cornerstone of the normal movement of the base.
