BRINGING THE MISSION TO YOUR HOME
The LunaSat & Teams
The LunaSat comes equipped with solar panels, a temperature sensor, an accelerometer, a magnetometer, a capacitive sensor, a thermopile, and radio frequency. This student-led concept and device will measure various parameters on the moon using these sensors, and through the power and data configurations that workshop teams create, will conduct their science accordingly on the Moon.
Through the workshop, teams will gain an understanding in where the sensors are located on the LunaSat along with what each of them are capable of. The workshop offers a basic level of comprehension in terms of coding inside of Arduino--how to execute commands, verify compiling, uploading, baud rates, setup and loop functions, pinMode functions, along with basic troubleshooting.
For each module, teams must understand the code provided to them. Within the modules' content, teams will understand both practical and conceptual concepts pertaining to the corresponding sensor of their current module.
For example, in "Module 3: Solar Panels and Power Management" teams learn how different environments affect the power of the LunaSat, along with understanding the conversion of analog readings to voltage.
In "Module 11: Your Mission to the Moon," teams build their understanding of what it takes to design scientific case missions and/or studies, specifically in a lunar environment. This is done by evaluating the Planetary Science and Astrobiology 2023 - 2032 Decadal Strategy & Survey compared to their own personal mission proposal and assessing if they align to create an effective case study/mission.
