2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
A lunar camp in a crater on the moon’s North Pole, which gets sunlight almost all day, could be powered by solar panels; At the same time, there are water ice in the permanent shadow area of the moon’s polar region and in the impact crater, so it is convenient to collect water in the impact crater, providing water for astronauts. In the craters, the main building of the camp can be covered with lunar soil to withstand the special conditions on the moon (cosmic rays, solar wind).
2.2 How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Describe the techniques, materials and your design choices.
Technology: the construction of 3D printing machine, using 3D printing technology, the moon soil material through the nozzle layer by layer extrusion structure, first printing template or steel mesh, and then pouring or printing concrete.
Materials: Lunar soil is mixed with water, or with other liquids to form concrete for the base structure. The roof is made of concrete and covered with lunar soil. Lunar soil concrete has good resistance to extreme environment and can meet the construction requirements of lunar environment.
2.3 The environment on the Moon is very dangerous for the astronauts. Explain how your Moon Camp will protect them. (maximum 150 words)
(1) The moon has a large temperature difference in a day: temperature monitoring devices and regulating devices are installed in each area to display temperature values and facilitate temperature control, so as to achieve the purpose of constant temperature;
(2) The air on the moon is very thin. In order to ensure the safety of the astronauts when they go out, we have customized spacesuits for the astronauts
(3) Solar radiation and cosmic rays: The surface of our camp is covered with lunar soil, which has a good function of radiation protection. When astronauts go out, we have spacesuits specially equipped for astronauts;
(4) In order to prevent the impact of meteorites on the moon, we have built underground passages at the bottom of the crater, so that we can escape in time when danger comes.
