Lunar Living

Future of Space Exploration

Solar Power For Lunar Living

  • The solar arrays convert sunlight from the Sun to the astronauts for power so astronauts will be able to scout the moon and build their base there.

  • In the future after someone lands on the moon, solar arrays move out and provide energy to the astronauts.

  • Soon, there will be bigger Sun-tracking arrays so that there will be more better power levels for more exploration with the powered moon buggy.

  • Instead of the big Sun-tracking arrays powering the moon buggy, the moon buggy has its own mini solar array to charge itself.

Life on The Moon

  • NASA had a life and work on the moon contest and they had the contest to see visions of what the future might have if life and work was a thing in the future.

  • In the near future, enough power and energy will be produced for humans to work on the moon for at least a couple weeks or a month.

  • Some ideas for the future was, if people lived on the moon, they would learn what the difference between Earth and the moon is.

  • Also other things students would do on the moon is building a model of a lunar colony to present to their classmates.

Life in a Sealed Container

  • Once Lunar Living has been finished students will pick activities to study like lunar habitat and exploration.

  • Other things students will do is they will lunar landers, robots, and other things.

  • Some other ideas of lunar living is making edible models of things on the moon.

  • The time studying and creating is lasting only for one week.
