We have written descriptions for each
of the sections of the challenge. Our class has
only worked on the project for two class periods and we know we have
a long way to go.
We appreciate any input you can offer!
We will build the station out of steel and iron.
It will be shaped in an oval and be below ground for three stories.
We will also have some storage areas outside of the main space station.
We will have special machines to control the temperature.
To protect the humans from the moon we will build sturdy space crafts
and be sure the
Research Station is very well built. The astronauts will have a door
that will open
and close automatically to protect them from the moon‚s environment
when they do EVA.
In our Research Station we will have:
A Spacesuit closet
A rest area/bedroom (with space beds)
A recycling area
A privacy room
A gravity switch the astronauts can push to make gravity
A secure door that requires a code for entry or exit
An exercise room
Laboratories and other research spaces

Our group developed an „Astro Phone‰ which is like a
normal phone but has a satellite
added to it. This phone also has text messaging abilities and is a
phone. The Astro Phone will also have a vibrating ringer.
The astronauts will also use walkie-talkies to communicate with one
another while they
are on the moon. These walkie-talkies will be better than the kind
we use on earth.
The astronauts will be able to see each other while they are talking.
talkies also have subtitles for astronauts who speak different languages
and even the
