When we return to the moon, we need to be ready for this new age of space travel. My crew needs to stay calm under pressure, possess mechanical engineering and technological skills to repair damage, and have an understanding of our solar system. Most importantly, we need members who will listen to one another. My crew will include males and females to bring gender equality to the field of space science.
We will set up our habitat near a crater rim that receives a large quantity of sunlight and look for frozen water inside that crater. We’ll set up a semi-permanent lab to stay on the moon for future astronauts. The crew will run experiments studying the health of organisms on the moon, trying to answer questions about space’s effect on living things.
My crew is leaving behind our solar-powered lab containing a self-operating garden, enabling study of long-term plant growth. If water is found, the lab contains compactly-stored tubes capable of stretching over five kilometers long. Astronauts will transport water from the crater to the lab by melting it and creating a vacuum in the tube to move it. At the lab, water will be collected, studied, and utilized.
Thank you for your interest in contacting Future Engineers. We look forward to connecting with you!
