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.
First of all, through the rocket transport construction materials and personnel to the moon, and in the moon using craters to establish an underground + above ground base construction mode, in the outermost layer of the building covered with lunar soil for insulation, reduce radiation and from asteroid impact and other effects. Secondly, after building the building, start to cultivate green plants and yellow meal insects, so as to achieve self-sufficiency in food supply for living on the Moon, and start to try to live on the Moon for a long time. Then, explore different areas on the Moon through lunar terrain vehicles, record the detailed characteristics of the Moon, explore the future available lunar resources, and drill for mineral resources. Moreover, scientific experiments on the Moon are conducted to explore the differences between certain experiments in microgravity conditions and Earth is results, and to refine scientific theories.
2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
The camp was built in the Shackleton Crater area near the south pole of the Moon, which is along the crater rim and is always exposed to sunlight while the interior is in permanent shadow, NASA has also found frozen water in the area and the site is in near continuous sunlight one can easily go in the completely dark area with water and can be used as a resource to supplement.
2.2 How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Describe the techniques, materials and your design choices.
We use the outermost wall (lunar soil) to resist meteorite attack, reduce lunar radiation, keep warm, etc., sandwich metal to shield radiation, internal concrete (or other new building materials) to achieve the role of airtight internal space, keep warm, etc.; maintain the same air composition ratio, pressure and constant temperature and humidity inside the building and the Earth to provide a good living environment; designate a suitable diet and exercise program for the personnel in the Moon to maintain good physical fitness.
2.3 The environment on the Moon is very dangerous for the astronauts. Explain how your Moon Camp will protect them. (maximum 150 words)
The use of craters on the Moon to establish a subterranean + above-ground base building model, the outermost layer of the building covered with lunar soil for insulation, radiation reduction and protection from asteroid impact and other effects.
2.4 Explain how your Moon Camp will provide the astronauts with:
In the first stage, a large amount of water is transported by Earth cargo spacecraft, and in the later stage, the domestic wastewater is purified and reused through a closed internal circulation system, as well as the development of permafrost on the Moon to achieve self-sufficiency in lunar water resources.
After the construction of the building began to cultivate green plants and yellow meal insects, so as to achieve self-sufficiency in food supply for lunar life, and began to try long-term life on the Moon.
Energy uses a solar+nuclear dual-grid power generation scheme, establishing solar plants in long sunlit areas near the base to absorb solar energy and delivering nuclear fuel via cargo spacecraft for nuclear fission power generation on the Moon. Because nuclear power generation is highly efficient, only a single transport of a small amount of nuclear fuel is required to achieve long-term nuclear power generation. Later, we will explore the research and utilization of nuclear energy materials on the Moon, and aim to realize the workflow of “lunar collection – lunar processing – purification – lunar power generation”
The air is dynamically adjusted with reference to the composition ratio and pressure of the Earth, and multiple sensors are arranged to accurately detect changes in the concentration of the air inside the base and make timely adjustments accordingly. If the moon has a large amount of water resources, it will provide sufficient oxygen through electrolysis and photosynthesis of plants, otherwise it will fix carbon dioxide and produce oxygen through algae and green plants and chemical methods.
2.5 Explain what would be the main purpose of your Moon Camp.
My lunar camp tends to be mainly for scientific purposes, exploring the possibility of achieving long-term survival of a small number of people on the Moon by sending an advance team to establish the basis for later large-scale lunar migration, and exploring suitable lunar survival modes and exploration of lunar resources through the advance team.
3.1 Describe a day on the Moon for your Moon Camp astronaut crew.
In the morning: the alarm clock rings at eight o’clock, the lights in the dormitory are automatically turned on, and the camp personnel get up and wash up. During the washing period, the automatic breakfast machine cooks breakfast and places it on the table through the robot arm, and the menu is different every day. After breakfast, camp personnel undergo a daily physical examination to record the physical status of camp personnel and detect abnormalities in a timely manner. After the completion of the physical examination, the personnel were divided into four groups, the first group went to the land to drive terrain vehicles to explore the lunar resources, the second group tested whether the operation of various mechanical equipment is normal and whether there are potential problems that need to be repaired, the third group went to check the growth condition of the plant bin animal bin, and the fourth group went to the scientific research area for scientific research.
Noon: The first group carried portable food to be heated and eaten in the car, while the others were cooked and eaten by the cooking robot in the restaurant, and took a lunch break after the meal.
Afternoon: Continue to finish the morning work.
Evening: 19:00 all personnel back to the camp dining room, after dining chat about what happened today, in an hour and a half to the gym to complete today’s exercise, and then wash up, the rest of the time the base personnel free arrangements. At 23:00 the base enters sleep mode and automatically turns off all lights.
