Project description

The original camp for three was designed and built on the moon. Taking advantage of the lightness and ease of assembly of containers, the construction and design of container moon camps, and transporting container boards to the moon, can be quickly assembled and formed to speed up the progress of camp construction. The construction of the camp has designed multiple warehouses and divided the areas according to functions to ensure the safety of the astronauts’ lives and ensure the research support of the astronauts. Residential compartment for rest, planting silo for growing plants, main control room for communication control, vehicle compartment for parking the vehicle and recharging the rover, storage box for preserving materials, laboratory for materials Research and exploration, food processing chambers are used for food processing and astronaut dining. In addition, a simulated gravity system wraps the entire base so that astronauts can adapt to the lunar environment and be able to live and conduct research stably on the moon. Astronauts living in the camp can use the rover to explore the lunar surface environment and topographic structure, and collect minerals and lunar soil for research.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

North Pole of the Moon

Since the polar regions of the moon are exposed to sunlight for about 70% to 80% of the time, the light conditions are good, and the solar energy is sufficient, which can provide enough light for the power supplement of the lunar camp; the temperature difference in the polar regions is small, and the temperature in the north pole region of the moon is more Warm, more suitable living environment, and lower damage to buildings; a large number of lunar seas are distributed in polar regions to meet the needs of preparing life-sustaining consumables such as oxygen and water; the terrain is relatively broad and flat, which is conducive to spacecraft take off and land

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

Carrying an intelligent and autonomous robotic arm robot, when it first landed on the moon, a small part of the design and manufacture of the solar thermal power station was first placed on the lunar surface to collect light and heat to store a certain amount of energy, which is the basis for the continuous advancement of the subsequent camp construction process. The energy needed, and rapid mining and development of lunar resources; design container buildings, choose lighter-colored steel plates to clad the construction and production of polystyrene foam sandwich composites, and then transport them to the moon by rockets. Basic container boards and lightweight poles are robotically spliced into basic boxes; using folding technology to expand the moon barn connection channel was constructed and designed, transported to the lunar surface, and then inflated to connect various basic warehouses; after the camp was roughly formed, Robots with intelligent robotic arms are used to excavate lunar soil and turn it into building materials, and use 3D printing technology to create a dome above the camp to protect against dangers such as space meteorites.

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

Lay satellite navigation next to the camp to detect abnormal stars in space and use missiles to avoid meteorites; use 3D printing technology to build a high-thickness dome above the camp at the later stage of the camp to avoid cosmic radiation and micro-meteors to the greatest extent, and generate pressure close to atmospheric pressure, It can also play a role in keeping the camp warm; improve the gas circulation system of each internal warehouse, detect the content of air components in real time, set a warning value of the maximum gas content, extract the gas in the warehouse after the gas content exceeds the standard, and fill it with pure gas and circulate it . And secondary use to ensure that the gas in the warehouse is always suitable for life. In the event of an accident, emergency supplies and food are provided at each link to ensure members are rescued.

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

Carry a certain amount of liquid nitrogen, initially use the lunar soil to refine oxygen to produce water; use the lunar rover to detect and collect lunar permafrost, use the light gathering reflective device of the photothermal power station to heat the frozen soil, obtain the initial water resources, and then use the ion exchange resin and reverse osmosis membrane to purify the water; the base is equipped with a complete water circulation system, recycle the wastewater, the experimental research wastewater will be purified with greater intensity and then returned to the laboratory for laboratory water, and the initial purification of the bath water can be reused for bathing after the initial purification, The excreta will be used for water and nutrient replenishment of plants after a certain fermentation effect.

Carry a certain amount of compressed food and water resources, initially eat and drink the food and water carried; carry potatoes, grain seeds and vegetable seeds with high starch content, study the development of seeds on the moon, specify the cultivation plan, carry out cultivation experiments in the planting room, cultivate good seeds that can adapt well to the lunar environment, plant planting in the planting room, the planting room provides sufficient nutrients, water, and light to promote the maturity of the plant, after the success of the cultivation plant, set the corresponding data, large-scale cultivation, Fruit is obtained for food; protein-rich insects, such as mealworms, are cultured.

Construction of solar thermal power station, through the mirror to concentrate sunlight into the solar energy collection device, the use of solar heating collection medium (liquid or gas), control the temperature difference between the two junctions of the closed circuit connected by two different conductors, the use of “Seebeck effect”, control the thermoelectric potential generated in the loop, so as to obtain electric energy, and the larger the temperature difference, the greater the thermal potential; the use of lunar rovers to open ore, the development and utilization of mineral resources.

The use of lunar rover to mine minerals, make a solid fuel oxygen generator (SFOG), mix sodium chlorate and iron powder, the reaction can produce oxygen under high temperature conditions; hydrogen is used to reduce ilmenite (Fe2TiO5 or FeTiO3) to produce water, and then electrolyzed water to obtain oxygen and hydrogen, the reactant required for the initial reaction; the construction of an air circulation system to ensure the fluency of the camp air; the lunar mineral production reaction produces other components of the air; the internal perfect gas circulation system, the real-time detection of air content in the warehouse, Set the warning value of the maximum gas content, and cycle the gas in the warehouse after the gas content exceeds the standard.

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

The main purpose is scientific research. Rare ores are abundant on the moon, and there is sufficient supply for biochemical research. It can be explored and collected using a lunar rover, transported back to the camp storage room, and the composition of lunar soil and rare ores can be further analyzed in the laboratory and Study the composition of lunar soil and rare minerals, study the adaptability of plants to the lunar soil for the composition of the lunar soil, research and develop its genes, and try to study the organisms on the moon; use the moon’s abundant rare minerals to study its properties in depth, and combine it with Earth communicates to share information.
