Transcript of Lunar Settlement
Our materials need to be strong and light, and the tower would need to be tall. The tower would be a microwave transmitter, and the materials would need to withstand the Moon's harsh environment and it would have to be light to be able to travel through space. If the city that we want to communicate is on the far-side of the Earth, then we would use satellites to send the signal. How are we going to get to the Moon? Using a rocket! This rocket needs to stand straight up, be big to fit all the passengers, and it has to go fast. Most rockets go 17,000 miles per hour (27,400 kilometers per hour). Talk about speedy! Even though our rocket travels that fast, it might take 3 days to get to the Moon. The rocket also needs to be able to withstand the enormous amounts of pressure that press against it when leaving the atmosphere. Moon to Earth!
Are you there? Earth to Moon!
Copy that. We can use solar panels on the moon for power. We can use solar panels because they use light energy from the sun. That makes it generate electricity through the whole lunar base. Each panel holds 100-300 watts of power. Only a limited amount of power is in one solar panel, so that is why we need multiple solar panels so we could get the power that we need. Look at the diagram below for more details about how solar panels work. What kind of house would we stay in? :( NASA would think of using metal to make the design of the lunar house. It is a three-story home, which looks like three tuna cans stacked up together. Inside, there would be a hygiene area, a kitchen, an eating area, two bedrooms and a recreation room. The recreation room can be used as a gym, a workshop and for other activities. And, as a special feature, there is a working full-color TV and an AM/FM radio system! On the Moon, we don't use cars like on Earth. We use MOON BUGGIES! These buggies are specially made to withstand the Moon's rough terrain. You can run over rocks without the wheels popping or becoming flat. Also, we need mining buggies, too. The mine buggies dig up things that are buried in the Moon's dirt, like hydrogen in the form of polar water. Believe it or not, people can make lots of money off this. Using our "dollars and sense" (pun intended), we can dig up the hydrogen and use it to supply the colony with water. Vital nutrients are scooped up when mining. So, we can use those vital nutrients to fertilize the greehouse plants (see slide 6). Earth might want some lunar soil, so why don't we get them some? There is no atmoshpere on the Moon, and with 1/6 of the Earth's gravity, the Moon provides a challenging place to land a space shuttle, probe, or rocket. Using a single downward-thrusting jet engine to maintain the illusion of lunar flight, while smaller motors allows the rocket to manuver. Neil Armstrong, the first man on the Moon, described landing as "trying to stop a downhill putt on a fast green.'' For our lunar base, we have a flat area where the rocket can land safely. The rocket pilot can see the yellow glowing lights that greet him and say, "Land here! It's safe!'' Hope you Enjoyed!!! Here we are San Moonego, Vallis Bohr Prezi Credits
