Moon Camp Pioneers Gallery 2019-2020

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.

Team: Moon Ark

High school affiliated to zhengzhou university of light industry  Zhengzhou    China 17 to 18 years old External viewer for 3d project
Project description
Describe your Moon Camp project.

Our lunar camp has a laboratory and lunar material collection vehicle, taking into account waste recovery and energy collection, energy production, the use of some special materials and cutting-edge technology, highly enclosed structure, a variety of functions are more complete, to maximize the safety of astronauts, but also enough for astronauts to live a normal life and work.

Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

We intend to build a lunar camp in the moon’s southern and arctic regions, where there is the most likely large amount of water ice and where the polar regions are exposed to long periods of sunlight and low temperature differences, providing an advantage for solar cells to absorb energy and the normal operation of related scientific research equipment. These reasons make us feel that the polar region is the ideal place to establish lunar scientific research.

How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Describe the techniques and materials you would use.

, excreta recovery: the energy recovery service using life support system (link 1)

II, food supply: the moon space warehouse greenhouse environmental planting technology

III, oxygen supply: “moon oxygen machine”, the use of high temperature generated by the focus of solar energy to heat the lunar soil, produce oxygen



Excreta recovery and lunar ice development.

Plant greenhouse silos.

Moon ice hydrogen energy development, solar energy storage.

Solar-focused oxygen-making device.

How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Which materials would you use?
The environment on the Moon is very dangerous for the astronauts. Explain how your Moon Camp will protect them.

FirstRadiation: the lunar camp structure module properly thickened and the materials used are with radiation-proof mezzanine, can greatly reduce radiation hazards, astronauts are also equipped with personal radiation dosage meter, timely feedback of personal radiation information, increase security

SecondAlien meteorites: There are radar warnings and small rockets near the camp, which can predict the path before the meteorites arrive, issue early warnings and use rockets to intercept (smash) in time, reducing or even eliminating damage to astronauts and the camp.

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

Wake up from the sleep ingg, look out of the window of the universe, get up for breakfast, first go to the green plant training warehouse to record the growth of green plants, and then walk to the laboratory, start research work, work to lunch at noon, and then check whether the energy recovery device and solar panels are working properly, Then go to the radar room to see if there have been dangerous flying objects recently. At this time you can exercise to do exercise, or take a nap in the rest ingress, enjoy the afternoon tea time. After dinner, set foot on the lunar rover and explore the nearby ground for two hours. After coming back, organize the information and summarize the work. Then use the radio and the relatives on earth to report peace. Finally, enter the rest of the barn to rest, tomorrow is a brand new day!
