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 will be designed as a prefabricated building, which will be sent to the lunar surface by the lunar landing spacecraft after the lunar orbit is assembled (and in our assumption, the lunar camp can return), and there is no need to work on the lunar surface and build it from scratch. We characterize the lunar camp as a period when humans have not been able to establish a large residence on the moon, in order to further expand the lunar surface residence for humans to carry out exercises and trial and error. We designed to change the command module in the traditional lunar landing spacecraft into the camp module of our lunar camp, which is mainly divided into: scientific research project module (for scientific research), greenhouse cultivation module (for food), life rest module and resource storage module. Moreover, the camp module is equipped with an independent water circulation and oxygen circulation system similar to the b330 space module to support astronauts’ long-term scientific research and survival here.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

Because our lunar camp is a small lunar camp with prefabricated buildings, we will consider the resource demand order of expanding the lunar camp when selecting the site. The first order is solar energy (electricity, heat collection and light energy). The second is lunar water ice (water). The third is kripp rock (phosphorus and potassium for agriculture). The fourth is ilmenite (helium III). Therefore, we assume that the site is located at the south pole of the moon, because the south pole of the moon will be exposed to sunlight 80% of the time a year, so that we can make more full use of solar energy resources to obtain electricity. Secondly, we will choose the east longitude 0.0 ° and south latitude 89.9 ° of the south pole, that is, Shackleton area, because it is rich in a large amount of lunar ice, and we can obtain water resources through lunar ice.

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

We first launch four camp modules into space and the lunar landing spacecraft components carrying four lunar camp modules to the moon, and then splice them on the lunar orbit. We envisage replacing the command module of the lunar landing spacecraft in the traditional sense with our four camp modules, and launching the lunar camp to the lunar surface after splicing the lunar camp in the lunar orbit. Our lunar camp module will use the water circulation and oxygen circulation system in the b330 space module. At the same time, we will use the thermal insulation layer in the shell of the camp module. The thermal insulation layer is a multi-layer and multi-material design, including Kevlar and aluminized Mylar with aluminum surface treatment, so as to ensure the temperature of the lunar surface.

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 lunar camp adopts the oxygen circulation system of b330 space capsule and is equipped with pressurized oxygen tank, which solves the threat of oxygen free environment in the moon to the survival of astronauts. Secondly, we will use thermal insulation layer on the shell of the camp capsule. The thermal insulation layer is a multi-layer and multi-material design, including Kevlar and aluminized Mylar with aluminum surface treatment, so as to ensure the temperature of astronauts.

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

Firstly, our lunar camp has an independent water circulation system. Secondly, we will carry liquid hydrogen in the resource storage module. Then astronauts can extract oxygen from lunar soil in the scientific research module, and then use liquid hydrogen to make water. Of course, we will also equip a certain amount of drinking water in the resource storage module for emergencies. Finally, the location of our lunar camp is 0.0 ° east longitude and 89.9 ° south latitude of the south pole, that is, Shackleton area. There is a large amount of lunar ice here. Astronauts can obtain water resources by collecting lunar ice

We will place a large number of compressed biscuits in the resource storage module and cultivate food with the help of the greenhouse cultivation module. Considering human needs and through calculation, we will fill the greenhouse cultivation module with 76% sweet potatoes, 14% cabbage and 10% strawberries. Then the astronauts will breed Tenebrio molitor in the greenhouse to obtain protein

Our space capsule shell will be equipped with solar panels (using photocells to directly convert sunlight into electricity) to generate electricity during the day, and will carry a new solar power generation device with magnetic levitation cone design (the power generation efficiency is 20 times that of ordinary solar panels). At the same time, we will install a generator that generates electricity by riding in the living rest area, so that astronauts can get electricity for storage while exercising

Firstly, we will use electrolytic water to obtain oxygen, and our camp cabin is equipped with a water circulation system for the long-term survival of astronauts. Secondly, the four camp cabins share a set of air circulation system. The oxygen produced by cabbage photosynthesis cultured in the greenhouse cabin can also be used by astronauts. Astronauts can also use the scientific research cabin to produce oxygen by refining lunar soil, Finally, we will place sufficient pressurized oxygen tanks in the resource storage warehouse for emergency needs.

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

The main purpose of our lunar camp is scientific research, which aims to accumulate experience and trial and error for human beings to establish the next large-scale residence, conduct experiments on the cultivability of different plants on the moon, and explore more areas of the moon (equipped with lunar rover and robotic dog)

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

The four astronauts woke up from the sleeping cabin at 7:00 in the morning and drank a cup of warm water. At 7:20 ~ 8:00, they took breakfast out of the resource storage cabin and ate it after simple treatment. At 8:00 ~ 11:30, the astronauts began their work. One astronaut operated a mechanical dog and a lunar rover to explore outside the camp, one astronaut went to the scientific research cabin for scientific research, and one astronaut went to the greenhouse culture cabin for plant culture, The last astronaut is responsible for communication with the earth and maintenance and inspection of the camp. 12: 00 ~ 13:00 is the lunch time for the astronauts. From 13:00 to 14:00, the astronauts return to the life rest cabin for lunch break. From 14:30 to 17:30, the astronauts work in the afternoon, and from 17:30 to 18:00, the astronauts start dinner. 18: From 00 to 19:00, the astronauts began their own recreational activities. From 19:00 to 19:30, the astronauts used riding generators to exercise. 19: 30 ~ 20:00 astronauts take a hot bath, 20:00 ~ 22:30 astronauts arrange their own time, and 22:30 astronauts go to sleep in the sleep chamber
