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

In order to adapt to the evolving human technology, we will focus on building a research-type lunar camp within the next three decades, studying the changes in life under the condition of reduced gravity on the moon and the growth habits of plants on the moon, and studying and appropriately exploiting lunar resources. We will send four astronauts to live on the camp. The Moon is undoubtedly an important transit point in the possible future of prospective migration plans, so a stable, reliable lunar camp will be extremely important. So our lunar camp design will take into account the possibility of mass production, and will try to make it as convenient as astronauts to live on the moon like Earth, or even more convenient.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

We will build bases in the plains of the lunar polar regions because of the polar daylight phenomenon in the polar regions, which can maximize the availability of light and provide energy for the lunar base. Considering the plains, the landform was designed to be universal when the base was built, in preparation for large-scale mass production that might exist in the future

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

We will build different functional warehouses on Earth, transport them to the moon for secondary splicing, and use metal glass for the construction of the frame, which meets the needs of light weight and hardness. Use solar matrix to maximize the collection of solar energy. The shock absorbing cushioning material is laid in advance at the place where it is in contact with the lunar surface. Artificial intelligence technology is used for the management of the entire base, and the consoles are set up in different areas to manage the entire camp. At the same time, mechanical arms are built around the lunar camp to repair the impact of the camp and protect the asteroid. As well as the construction of escape pods, when necessary, to ensure the safety of astronauts.

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

We will use special refractive materials to build the roof and intercept ray damage. At the same time, the escape compartment was built to facilitate the timely escape of astronauts in the most critical moments. Multiple large, movable robotic arms were placed around the lunar camp to buy astronauts escape time as meteorite debris arrived.As well as repairing the lunar camp in time.In the microgravity environment on the moon, the astronauts themselves are likely to develop muscle atrophy, so we set up exercise facilities in the living area. In order to avoid physical problems for astronauts, we have set up a medical warehouse to ensure the health status of astronauts.

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

Astronauts will carry water when they reach the moon, and the interior of the lunar camp will first maximize the recycling of these waters, followed by the use of water generated by fuel cells, and finally the exploration of water sources on the moon to meet the long-term water supply.We will collect the wastewater generated by the astronauts and carry out certain treatment to ensure the secondary and multiple uses of the water.

Astronauts will arrive in batches with the camp, transporting astronauts with plenty of food, and planting crops in the base to solve food problems.We will establish areas inside the lunar camp for plant cultivation to explore and construct new ecological cycles.

The lunar poles will experience the longest amount of light, and we will build solar energy collection devices to maximize the use of solar energy to power the base, and at the same time, we will use the cycle of fuel cells to increase energy utilization.There are large storage units in the energy zone to ensure that these stored electricity is enough to ensure the timely evacuation of astronauts when there is a problem with the power supply.

The main use of electrolyzed water to produce oxygen, while the nitrogen generated when planting plants, mixed in proportion to the camp, and always detect the air composition of the astronauts’ living area, to ensure that if necessary, the limited supply of living areas to meet the survival of astronauts. We will complete the following closed loop: first solar power, then electrolysis of water to produce oxygen, then use oxygen and water for plant planting, then collect water to meet the cycle, and finally meet the survival of astronauts

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

The lunar camp will be mainly used in scientific research to study the feasibility of lunar life, collect information, and explore whether the moon is suitable for human colonization of transit stations on alien planets; at the same time study the ore and energy on the moon, explore whether there is potential for development; and accumulate experience for future human colonization of aliens; and at the same time, it is necessary to develop crops suitable for growing in low-gravity environments, paving the way for future human beings to go to space

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

At 6:00 a.m., astronauts wake up in a separate sleeping capsule to pick up their own physical fitness test report yesterday and pair their breakfast with the meal recommendations on the report. At 7:00, astronauts perform up to an hour of physical training on exercise equipment to strengthen their physical fitness. At 8:00, the astronaut walked into the studio and began the morning work; at 10:00 a.m., the astronaut walked into the food area to observe and record the growth of crops, but there was no need for the astronauts to manually record it themselves, and the intelligent center console would record the data in advance. At 12:00 noon, the astronauts start their lunch, and after eating, they can go to the activity room to rest or go to the food area to see the plants. At 14:00, the astronauts began their afternoon work, studying the lunar soil and rocks collected by the lunar rover and sending reports to Earth in time. At 18:30 p.m., the astronauts began their second physical training session, and the training equipment collected its own exercise data to give a personalized report, reminding the athletes of what aspects of exercise needed to be strengthened. At 21:00 p.m., the astronauts on duty conducted routine inspections of energy equipment, lighting systems, and opened the safety doors of each functional compartment. At 22:00 in the evening, the astronaut summarizes today’s work content, writes a work log and archives it, and before 23:00, it belongs to the time at the astronaut’s discretion. After 23:00 in the evening, the base enters a low-energy state, and astronauts need to enter the sleeping cabin to ensure adequate sleep.
