3.1 Describe a day on the Moon for your Moon Camp astronaut crew.
It’s essential that the group of astronauts maintain physical and mental health, and for this we have a series of considerations before organizing the schedule: The human being has a biorhythm adapted to a cycle of 24 hours, the Moon takes 27 d, 7h., 43 min and 11.5 s, to rotate on its own axis, and the color of the sky always looks dark because it has no atmosphere that scatters light but an exosphere.
The group of astronauts is made up of twelve people,who will be divided into two groups with two different schedules, in order to ensure that there are always at least six people on alert.
Each group consists of two engineers, a biologist, a doctor-psychologist and two scientists.
6:00 – 7:00: Breakfast;
7:00-8:00: Physical training and grooming;
13:00-15:00 Personal time;
15:00- 19:00 Fieldwork-
19:00- 20:00 – Physical exercise,
time, 22:00-6:00-Sleep time.
6:00-14:00 Sleep time;
15:00-16:00h Physical training and grooming;
16:00-20:00 Fieldwork (3 hours in common with the other subgroup).
20:00-21:00 Food (in common with the other subgroup),
21:00-23:00 free time,
23:00-3:00 Group work;
3.00-4:00 physical exercise;
5:00-6:00 free time.
The development of fieldwork is divided into three sections.
- Maintenance of computer and robotic facilities and equipment.
Engineers will review the proper functioning of the base, facilities, power and water supply, thermoelectric generators, communications with ESA and the perfect functioning of the Rovers.
- Care of the greenhouse and collection
The two biologists will oversee the greenhouse and the good condition of the food to be ingested, and the quality of the water. They will also analyze samples collected from the lunar surface.
The two doctors will collaborate with the biologists and take care of the physical and mental state of the group.
- Research (sampling and analysis).
Scientists will collect samples from the lunar surface. They will analyze theresulting data and those provided by the camp’s instruments such as the weather station, radars, spectrometers, etc.
- Sharing of the work done and communication to the ESA base.
The twelve astronauts will have three hours of work in common, to organize the activities to be developed and communicate the results to ESA.
From 16:00 to 19:00h.
