2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
If we can find a suitable lava pipe, we will choose to build it here, but if not, we can also build it under the lunar ground.
Why two levels? First of all, the two levels of the moon are exposed to sunlight most of the time, and there is no atmosphere on the lunar surface, so solar energy can be brought into full play. Lava tubes can help us reduce the hazards of space radiation, extreme temperature and temperature difference, and space meteorites, greatly reducing the construction difficulty of the base and the requirements for construction materials.
2.2 How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Describe the techniques, materials and your design choices.
The construction of the camp is divided into four stages. In addition to the rotating main body, we will use 3D printing technology to directly use lunar soil as raw materials for construction, so as to save material costs and transportation costs.
In the first stage, we will send the robots responsible for the preliminary construction to the moon. They will deal with the construction environment of the moon, mine a large enough underground space, and build the base of the camp to place the main part of the camp.
In the second stage, the main part will be transported to the moon in turn for combination and splicing. The main part of the lunar camp is to assemble the modules on the earth and transport them to the moon in turn for splicing, because the lunar camp we built can be divided into four small modules, each module has relative independence, and ensure that after one of them is damaged, the others will not be affected too soon.
In the third stage, after the construction of the main part, we will build the lunar surface. We will directly use the lunar soil to build a garage and radar on the lunar surface to produce air, water and food. At the same time, we will connect all parts of the lunar camp at this stage, that is, connect the underground and the ground, so that astronauts can shuttle freely through all parts of the camp.
The fourth stage, which has been officially completed, now we need to start the operation of all parts of the camp. The main body drives the outer ring to rotate, so as to create centrifugal force to simulate gravity. Finally, the bin on the outer ring will adjust its inclination due to the centrifugal force.
2.3 The environment on the Moon is very dangerous for the astronauts. Explain how your Moon Camp will protect them. (maximum 150 words)
We will establish a completely closed earth ecological simulation system, so that astronauts can live on the moon for a long time. At the same time, we have also built a production storage warehouse to realize a self-sufficient life on the moon.
Every part of our camp is closely connected, including underground and aboveground. They are also connected. Because we will dig a tunnel under the lunar surface to connect it to the surface and underground, so that you can reach every place in the camp without wearing a spacesuit. But they are also independent of each other. If one place is damaged, other places will not be affected too soon.
Finally, the location of our camp ensures the safety of astronauts to a certain extent. Because there is no atmosphere on the moon, space radiation and meteorites have become a great threat, and underground and lava pipelines have become natural refuge ports. It can help people resist their harm to a certain extent. In addition, their temperature is also relatively appropriate, and the temperature difference between day and night is relatively small.
