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

Set up a series of equipment conditions for human daily life research. Multi-functional vegetable greenhouses in order to meet the demand for food, Our astronauts will be able to eat almost the same vegetables as they do on Earth,solar panels to convert light energy, and by establishing the atomic batteries collected to the conversion of light energy storage and use, radar and signal tower is used to collect the radio waves in space and analyzed to determine the UFO and meteorological conditions in space and make the camp signal to maintain good communication, The rover and the unmanned rover will be used for scientific research on the moon, the research institute will be used for all research projects in space, and the living module and all the equipment inside will be used for the daily life of the astronauts, including sleep medicine and exercise. The main control room adopts the principle of digital twin system to monitor the humidity, temperature, gas content and other data in real time in each part of the area.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

The site can be located in the perpetual day zone with Kripke rock and close to the perpetual night zone (water ice zone) with less large area. Solar energy, electric power and solar thermal energy are the first requirements for the location of lunar base. Water ice and water on the moon; The third is Kripke rock, uranium and thorium (space reactor), phosphorus and potassium for agriculture; The fourth is ilmenite, helium-3. This area can meet these needs.

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

We can use robots to build a lunar base. We can first send robots to the moon, control robots to build a lunar base, and then transport some finished parts and equipment directly to the moon. After the completion, we can let human beings live on the moon base. The lunar soil is composed mainly of various metal oxides, which are melted and electrolyzed, yielding metals and oxygen directly. Since the surface of the moon is a vacuum, there is no moisture and oxygen erosion, all metals can be directly used, including calcium, magnesium, etc., which cannot be directly used on Earth. Solar energy requires large amounts of silicon, which can also be electrolysed, and the vacuum conditions on the moon’s upper surface are more suitable for silicon production. Using silicon, magnesium, aluminum, calcium and so on, you can make a lot of solar panels and ensure a sufficient power supply. Using reflectors to focus, the lunar soil melts and solidifies. Melted soil can also act as an adhesive, cutting chunks of rock together.

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

On the moon, astronauts can take advantage of nearby natural shielding materials, such as piling lunar soil or weathered soil on their shelters to reduce radiation exposure. Radar will be built near the base to protect against meteorite falls. All exterior wall materials at the base have moderate hardness and flexibility ratio, which can greatly protect the safety of astronauts. Solar panels to provide enough energy for astronauts to transform, has completed the normal life, work and other necessary conditions.

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

The moon sand contains many oxygen iron ore, so sand can be used to make fresh water and oxygen, the existence condition of the astronauts and plants required some method is to use the detection machine acquisition of mineral compound on the surface of the moon, through intelligent mechanical selecting oxygen iron content, oxygen iron content and REDOX reaction with hydrogen, fresh water, It would also be supplemented by harvesting fresh water produced by respiration from plants in vegetable greenhouses and by lunar water ice on the moon’s surface.

Through “vegetable greenhouses” set up independent closed loop controlled ecological life insurance system, at the same time, through the twin system, the principle of the digital master control room remote real-time monitoring of the internal indicators data, by means of science and technology, to meet external conditions needed for the plant, to achieve food, oxygen and water and other basic life safeguard supplies continuous regeneration and supply.

The energy on the moon comes from a steady stream of sunlight collected by solar panels, which are then converted into chemical energy by atomic batteries, which are then converted into other energy for use by other equipment that needs energy. Meanwhile, the solar panels on the lunar rover could generate enough energy to make the rover self-sufficient.

After water is generated, through the principle of water electrolysis, wastewater or clean water from daily life can be reused, plus air purification and separation system can get oxygen and hydrogen. Oxygen is liquefied and stored for long-term use by base residents. The hydrogen is recycled back into the water production process.

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

First, the establishment of a lunar camp on the moon to mine the earth’s lack of resources, can fully understand the structure of the moon, has great significance for human outer space research.
Second, in the moon gravity is small, launch spacecraft on the moon, can improve the spacecraft structure, save energy.
Third, the vacuum and low gravity conditions of the moon are a special environment that is difficult to replicate for scientific research on Earth, which has special utilization value for scientific research.
Fourth, if the technical conditions can be met, the moon will become a good place for people to spend their holidays.

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

Get up from 6:00 to 8:00, wash in the ultrasonic bathroom, and then eat breakfast in the catering area.
8:00-20: 00 check each cabin facilities and for necessary maintenance, check the radar detection space and make the last night, can use a lunar rover and unmanned detector to collect the information and samples, noon meal, use a few extractor class equipment resources for survival, through a variety of class a sterile tunnel connection, between the transfer of supplies, In addition, equipment such as air filters will be repaired. During this time, frequent visits will be made to the main control room to check various data indicators in the cabin in real time to maintain the normal operation of the lunar camp. Then, dinner will be served in the evening.
From 20:00 to 22:00, the astronauts can exercise effectively in the living room through treadmill, traction machine and other activities, or several people together for entertainment and leisure. They can also take care of plants and communicate with people on the ground via video and email.
22:00-23:00 wash and rest, before going to bed to check the operation of each part of the moon camp, safety is the most important.
