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 plan of our lunar base is to use microorganisms to explore local resource utilization technologies. Microorganisms are very “careful” and have the characteristics of low energy consumption and high decomposition rate. They are very suitable for working on the moon, which is lack of energy but extremely rich in mineral resources,It can realize the in-situ mining and smelting of lunar resources. We first plan to use Sphingomonas to carry out the experiment, because it can extract rare earth metals from basalt and dissolve them in bacterial solution under various gravity conditions. In the future, we will continue to explore a variety of suitable microorganisms to improve the efficiency of resource extraction. We also plan to use a new cloud primary edge computing satellite that integrates edge computing technology and satellite technology to achieve efficient lunar energy survey, environmental risk prediction, and control of ground equipment.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

Under the “Marius hills” on the lunar surface, there are slender lava pipe holes 3 km away. The lunar volcanic lava pipeline, formed by the lunar volcanic action, can prevent temperature fluctuations, space radiation, micro meteorite impact and sand blasting caused by spacecraft activities, form a very stable living environment and save a lot of costs.

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

First, the materials that must be built are brought to the moon by rocket. The transportation between the lunar underground human base and the lunar surface can be realized through the vertical elevator, and the camp can be placed at this position. Through beam column frame support, 3D printing of lunar soil, bolt shotcrete support technology and other technologies, the composite material layer with good interior sealing is selected to build the shell. Build a solar reaction chamber outside the foundation, use solar energy to generate electricity, and use the heat of solar energy to produce a large amount of air.

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

The lunar camp is built in the underground lava pipeline, which can effectively prevent meteorite impact, space radiation and temperature fluctuation. The walls in the base have the function of temperature and humidity regulation, which can maintain the most comfortable temperature and humidity. The base is equipped with a safety protection cabin, and astronauts can start the safety cabin to close quickly and wait for rescue in case of accident.

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

The lunar rover excavates ice in the crater or on the surface and brings it back to the base for water treatment. In addition, a large amount of titanium iron oxide on the moon is used for chemical reaction under the action of high temperature in the solar reaction chamber to release oxygen and inject hydrogen to produce water.

At the beginning, we need to carry food from the earth and use the existing technology in the base. At present, we have mastered the technology of using micro greenhouse to plant flowering vegetables on the moon. From the earth carrying vegetable seeds to the base micro greenhouse, planting flowering vegetables and soybeans can realize the cultivation of food crops on the moon

The lunar solar power generation system consists of a lunar solar base. The bases are equipped with a series of batteries to collect solar energy and store energy. The solar energy is sent to the microwave motor through underground wires for human life and experiment underground.

The moon itself is rich in titanium iron oxide. Under the action of strong solar energy, it is heated to jiubaidu and becomes magma, so as to release oxygen, introduce hydrogen to make water, and form breathable air through electrolysis, and hydrogen is reused.

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

Our main purpose is scientific experiment. We will explore and cultivate microbial “miners” who can adapt to the lunar environment in the laboratory of the lunar base, and then carry out large-scale production, so that the moon can become an energy supply station and resource factory in the future, so as to alleviate the problem of the gradual shortage of earth’s resources.

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

At 7:00 a.m. Beijing time, the four astronauts got up in the bedroom of the living area on the third floor, washed and cleaned their personal hygiene in the room, entered the planting and culture area at 7:20 to observe the growth of edible plants in the incubator, and then began to enjoy breakfast. At 8:30, they checked the cloud primary satellite, solar panel, solar reaction room, lunar rover and other equipment for maintenance and inspection. If there is no problem, they will enter the laboratory for experimental work at 9:00. Two astronauts will experiment on the collected samples and cultivate microorganisms. One operates the lunar rover to collect samples, and the other arranges and extracts the data sent back by the cloud primary satellite. After working for four hours, they will have lunch on the second floor at 13:00, take a short lunch break after lunch, and continue to return to the laboratory on the first floor at 14:30. After working until 18:00 p.m., the astronauts will finish their day’s work, rest on the second floor, make dinner with vegetables.cultivated in the greenhouse, and then arrange for fitness, reading, contacting earth families, etc. at 21:00, close relevant equipment and check various indicators of the base system, If there is no problem, enter the sleeping cabin to rest after washing at 21:30. At the end of the day.
