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

We plan to build a lunar sphere on which astronauts can conduct normal experiments, scientific research, food, clothing and shelter. We built camps at the poles of the moon, where there was abundant water ice, and we built water and oxygen machines to use that water ice. We also set up a laboratory for astronauts to conduct lunar exploration experiments. We have also built space guns to shoot down space junk and also to defend against aliens. And then we use the natural environment of the moon to build a plant culture chamber to grow plants that will provide food for the astronauts. In addition, there are lunar rover, ice harvester, probe, satellite and so on to meet the daily life.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

We will build lunar camps at the lunar poles because there may be a lot of water ice at the north and South poles of the moon, which will solve the problem of water supply and oxygen for the astronauts. In addition, the polar region of the moon is under sunlight about 70% ~ 80% of the time, solar cells can provide sufficient power for the lunar base, the temperature difference in the polar region is small, and there are a lot of lunar seas in the polar region, which should be the ideal area for establishing lunar science research

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

We’re going to build lunar camps in different regions. They built lounges, plant culture rooms, consoles, oxygen and water production rooms, laboratories, anti-aircraft guns, lunar modules, and so on. To make oxygen and water, we take the moon’s water ice, process it into drinkable water and then electrolytic it into hydrogen and oxygen, which will power the lunar camp. We also use the moon’s abundant solar energy to generate electricity, which will allow us to build powerful electromagnetic cannons to clean up space debris and ward off aliens. In order to establish contact with earth, we built relay satellites to communicate information between earth and moon. We also built robots to help the astronauts

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 built a fully enclosed laboratory and living room for the astronauts, which can provide emergency shelter for the astronauts. We’ve also built control rooms and radars that can predict danger in advance and pinpoint it, so that we can use high-powered electromagnetic guns to pinpoint the target and eliminate the danger. If there is an unavoidable danger, the astronauts can carry the lunar module back to earth.

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

There’s a lot of water ice on the moon, and we built diggers to take that water ice and send it to our water maker to treat it and get drinking water

We’ve grown a lot of space plants in a plant culture chamber that can provide astronauts with different nutrients.

In terms of energy, we mainly use solar energy and build solar panels. Hydrogen from water electrolysis and combustible ice from mining are good sources of energy

Air is mainly oxygen produced by electrolysis of water.

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

We built lunar camps and used the space environment to study the origin and evolution of the Moon and the Earth. Experiments and development in microbial genetic engineering, life support system in closed environment and large-scale artificial biosphere; To provide conditions for astronauts to live on the moon for long periods of time. To provide a solid foundation for human exploration of the moon and the universe.

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

In the morning, astronauts can drive our lunar rover to survey the lunar environment and collect some lunar soil. Then drive an excavator to collect water ice and put it into the water machine for reaction. The lunar soil collected can be taken to the laboratory for experiments. Astronauts can also give instructions to robots to do things for them. The plant culture room is also an interesting place where astronauts can watch and eat their own plants as they grow. In addition, the main control room will need astronauts to observe the conditions outside the moon and make emergency response to emergencies. If the astronauts are tired, they can rest and exercise in the lounge, or they can go up to the roof of the lounge and have a bird’s eye view of our beautiful home earth with an astronomical telescope!
