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

The Lunar Camp program is to build a place on the moon that can meet the needs of people.We aim to solve the problems of breathing, temperature difference, radiation, communication, housing, and dining for people on the moon.To this end, oxygen generators, nuclear power plants, houses and furniture, vegetable planting bases, and communication bases were designed to maintain people’s activities, and experimental bases were set up to further develop the moon.We have also set up a general control room to control the oxygen production and heating operations on the moon. If any link goes wrong or is in danger, the operation can be terminated immediately to ensure people’s safety.On the moon, we make full use of electricity to reduce fuel consumption, such as the electric lunar rover, and always maintain the concept of environmental protection.

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

We intend to build the lunar camp on the moon’s South Pole, where the sun, cosmic galactic radiation and micrometeorites are first avoided.Second, there is a lot of water ice in the South Pole of the moon, for water and fuel.Antarctica is exposed to about 70-80 percent of the sun, solar power provides enough power to the lunar base, and the temperature difference is small.The Antarctic has the largest basin in the solar system, the Eitken Basin, which has great scientific and symbolic significance for the exploration of the moon’s South Pole.

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

When we built camps on the moon, we tried using 3D printing technology.Type D type printing technology is one of the typical processes of powder printing.It uses a movable printed nozzle array to spray adhesives onto a sandy material that is then bonded and stacked to obtain the building components.Type D 3D printers have been shown to work properly in a vacuum environment, and have successfully used simulated lunar soil to print block structures characteristic of the lunar foundation components in an atmospheric 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)

For astronauts, the damage to the moon comes from every aspect.The first is radiation.We used melanin to make biomaterials.Lead-containing materials are used as outer layers of spacesuits and building materials to effectively reduce their impact on astronauts.The second one is the temperature.We use insulation to build an internal circulation system in the camp to provide a constant environment for astronauts.Finally, there is the lunar dust.Our best approach is to improve the material to resist the visual and electromagnetic effects of lunar dust.

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

According to current estimates, scientists believe there is enough water on the moon, about 10 billion tons per maximum.NASA has commissioned several companies to develop lunar probes that can carry excavation equipment.
There is also another source of water on the moon: the lunar soil.Also known as surface cutting, they contain silicon and metal oxides with an average mass fraction of about 43% of oxygen.In theory, lunar soil can be heated above 900 degrees Celsius, when hydrogen or carbon produced by astronauts from Earth can strip oxygen from minerals and combine with hydrogen to form water.But scientists calculate that releasing oxygen from the bonds actually requires more energy than heating the ice.

Experiments show that the lunar soil collected by Chang’e-5 could be improved to grow plants.
Lunar soil refers to the unique soil on the moon.It is formed by rocks on the moon after solar exposure and asteroid impacts.Wheat belongs to the grain, relatively easy to grow food crops, because it can be normal transmission, can also be normal seed planting wheat, other, such as legumes, gourd, cross crops, such as common fruits and vegetables are also easy to grow, also can grow normally in the soil, so planting vegetable food should not be a problem on the moon.

Using telescope optics, the system will capture and distribute sunlight on the moon.Through research, key scientific issues such as lunar soil maturity limiting the adsorption capacity of helium-3 and other fusion elements were found, and the characteristics and mechanism of chang’e-5 enrichment in lunar soil samples were preliminarily clarified.The escape characteristics and optimal extraction temperature of helium-3 in Changmu 5 lunar soil samples are studied, and the content characteristics of major elements and trace elements and their limitation on helium-3 content are studied.It provides scientific data support for estimating the amount of lunar helium 3 resources and exploring the feasibility of using lunar helium 3.

On the one hand, many manned spacecraft, including the International Space Station, use a similar oxygen production system, namely the electrolytic system.Melt electrolysis, on the other hand, only needs to be added first.
Heat, electrolysis.By melting the electrolysis of the G.The main ingredient used is the lunar soil.Oilmenite and ferric oxide, and when these.The substance is heated up to 1,600 ° C.At 2,500 ° C, it was electrified, and all the elements of the lunar soil were destroyed

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

Since ancient times, food has been the priority of people. In recent years, with the development and progress of science and technology, people have been more and more interested in space mutagenesis breeding programs using the Tiangong Space Laboratory and other returning spacecraft to carry plant seeds and cultivate more new varieties and strains.And the lunar camp we built can meet scientists’ breeding needs by providing more comfortable living conditions for advanced laboratories.

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

When we got up in the morning, after washing and having breakfast, we started the day’s work, went to the nearby laboratory to check the mutagenic data of different varieties of seeds, and then we began to carry out the experiment.We usually stay in the lab until 7:00 p. m., and smart robots bring us a delicious lunch.Enter a few instructions to turn off the data that doesn’t need to run, go back to the cabin to have a simple dinner, go to the lounge, read books, have tea with colleagues, talk about your experiments or exercise.Every Monday, we will go to the general control room to report the progress and get in touch with the family on the earth. The days are busy and fulfilling.
