Describe your Moon Camp project.
The main purpose of the base was to combine the research function, to ensure safety and the possibility of a long stay on the Moon for several astronauts.
The base had to be self-sufficient. For this, it was necessary to secure the right energy source and to provide sufficient food.
The base consists of two connected parts. One part is located on the surface of the Moon, the other below its surface.
To protect against radiation, temperature or meteors, the entire base is covered with regolith.
The part of the base located on the surface of the moon consists of:
– garage for research rovers also acting as a technical room,
– solar power plant,
– mini nuclear power plant,
– the medical part,
– antennas for satellite communication,
– experimental plant cultivation.
Below the surface are:
– plantations with compost,
– computer and technical room,
– kitchen and dining room,
– gym and relaxation room,
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
We would like to build a base near a place with coordinates N 79 30 0.00 W 46 30 0.00.
North pole, near the craters: west of Mouchez, southeast of Catena Sylvester, north of Poncelet.
Location with access to natural resources (ice, minerals and rocks with radioactive isotopes).
A place near shady craters where we would be looking for ice to collect water.
In the craters’ walls you could look for safe pits and tunnels to take refuge without having to dig the tunnel down.
The location of the base would allow good communication with the Earth and around the lunar space station and access to solar energy.
How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Describe the techniques and materials you would use.
The base would be constructed of components and materials supplied from Earth.
The base elements would be made of light, moon-resistant and durable materials.
They would be unfolded like tents on Earth with a large share of robotic arms and rovers.
Connecting the modules would have to ensure perfect tightness so that no air escaped from the base.
Later, as the base would become more developed , materials would be sourced from the lunar surface.
