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.

Team: Newcomers get started

Project description

With the development of economy and technology, human beings have been able to land on the moon, and leisure tourism has also begun to expand to the moon. Below is our project. First, we’ll get some bots to do some basic building. After that, we sent the passengers to the moon. The main functional areas include visiting center, accommodation center, recreation and fitness center, greenhouse, water and electricity system, etc. The functions are relatively complete and can meet the needs of most tourists in the next few months. When the lunar camp is fully built, it will be largely self-sufficient and even capable of meeting some scientific needs. At the same time, it also provides sufficient data for future mass migration.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

(1) We will build a lunar base near the south pole of the moon, the pole part of the moon will never be illuminated by the sun due to the rotation and rotation of the moon, allowing a large amount of solid water. Secondly, radiation can be reduced here and the life of the equipment can be extended.
(2) There are suitable craters or open areas to facilitate specific site selection.
(3) There are abundant mineral resources (magnesium, aluminum, iron, titanium, helium, etc.) nearby.

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

Since the Moon has little protection from an atmosphere or magnetic field, astronauts need homes that can withstand cosmic rays and meteorites. Initially, inflatable or modular shell modules brought from the earth could be built on top of other materials, such as bricks made from surface debris or organic waste combined with fungi. (Lunar soil is very poorly consolidated and needs to be integrated into building structures.. The ideal site would utilize natural shelter such as cliffs or caves. The Moon’s low gravity makes it easy to place very large reflector areas. The Moon’s The regolith is further crushed and made into a dry powder suitable for 3D printing using lasers or microwaves. Both roads and houses can be built. After the camp facilities are mature, the shell of the camp can be reinforced with the help of 3D printing technology.

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

There is no serious threat to the safety of astronauts such as atmosphere, radiation and particles on the moon. Therefore, the construction of the lunar base basically needs to be made of aerospace materials to resist cosmic radiation and ultraviolet rays. The Langmuir probe can monitor the plasma caused by the solar wind. The circular shell ensures that the building is sturdy and less susceptible to physical disturbances, such as small meteorites from the moon. The lunar surface is an ultra-high vacuum, and pressurized devices inside the camp inflate the cabin’s atmospheric pressure, keeping it at a normal pressure that the human body can withstand. The moon without atmospheric protection has a daytime maximum of 172°C and a nighttime minimum of -180°C. The lowest temperature on the lunar surface is minus 233 degrees Celsius, and the temperature control system in the camp will keep the astronauts comfortable.

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

Lunar ice in permanently Shadowed pits would be the most readily available source of hydrogen and oxygen. It uses mirrors to reflect sunlight to melt ice, and then captures water vapor through a dome above the lunar crater. The water is then purified by electrocoagulation.

Kale is a crop that grows well in confined Spaces and contains nutrients that degrade most easily in storage (vitamins C1, K, and potassium). On the moon, astronauts will grow crops in water. They will use white and red LEDS to change the mineral and vitamin content of the plants by adjusting the illumination.

1. Solar arrays gather energy from sun and photovoltaic cell store the energy, while solar concentrators generate heat to support, for example, 3D printing.
2. Solar-powered electrolysers can split water into oxygen and hydrogen, which can then be used to make fuel or put into fuel cells to power the night.
3. Later, nuclear power components will be sent from Earth to the moon (the far side of the moon could be used to cool nuclear waste, which could be launched into the sun by small rockets or destroyed in space).

1. As part of a closed ecosystem, plants can recycle organic waste and convert carbon dioxide into breathable oxygen.
2. Solar-powered electrolysers can split water into oxygen and hydrogen.
3. Oxygen can be produced on the moon by melt electrolysis, a technique that heats lunar soil or rock and electrolyses it with electricity. Oxygen is released from the melt in the form of bubbles. When heated to 1,600 to 2,500 degrees, oxygen-containing rock can break down to produce oxygen. (High efficiency)

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

1) The main purpose of our lunar camp is to make moon travel possible, to provide precedent and experimental data for future large-scale human migrations, and to reduce the cost of future migrations.
(2) Improve facilities and equipment to overcome difficulties and important problems such as extreme temperature, low gravity, rough terrain, and darkness.
(3) Develop extraction equipment, officially use helium-3 as the future energy of mankind, and solve the problem of future resource depletion of the earth.

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

In the morning, the astronauts wake up in their rooms, wash briefly, and then go upstairs to enjoy their meals and the moonlight. Astronauts will then be able to ride on a stressful rover or magnet train, zipping through lunar attractions such as the Apollo International Historical Park, and experience the footsteps of those who came before. Large and small moon seas, feel the power of asteroids. Intelligent robot guides who lead the parade will introduce them to the historical background of important cultural sites and major scientific achievements. After the tour, I went back to the base, put on comfortable clothes, and watched the wonderful growth process of the plants in the greenhouse. I think today’s food is extra sweet. In the afternoon, astronauts can do free activities at the base, go to special shopping malls, enjoy lunar snacks, and have souvenirs to take home to share with relatives and friends. Sporty astronauts also have a play area, a gym, and a low-gravity cycling field, which is a good choice. Take a leisurely afternoon stroll to the bar, order a glass of lunar origin ice to calm your burning heart and savor the loneliness of the Deep Moon Mine. After dinner, the astronauts can return to the lounge to review their day on the moon and sleep under the brighter stars.
