If you're looking to build some sort of permanent colony on the Moon, you're not going to want the people who live there to have to stay in their spacesuits all the time. Therefore, they need some sort of airtight living quarters.

Coat the bricks with a liner, like truck bed liner. I remember seeing a demo of that stuff where the salesman sprayed a concrete brick coated with the stuff and dropped it off of a building. The brick cracked, but the liner did not tear or separate from the brick. Neat stuff. Hopefully it can cure in a vacuum.

Actually, yes. Even a thin liner will stand up to any amount of vacuum, so long as it has a tough enough backing that it won't be pulled through any holes, causing the material to tear. The pores in these bricks would be nanoscale. No way plastic is getting pulled through holes that small.

A "cindar block" (otherwise known as a concrete masonry unit) is 8x8x16.

At 14 pounds per square inch for slightly less than standard atmospheric pressure, the 8x16 inch side of a block on the inside of the room would have to contend with 1792 pounds of air pressure against it.

Multiply that by the number of cindar blocks in the wall of a room, and you have a LOT of pressure.

Micro-meteorites? If the brick can absorb the impact, then the airtight structure inside (or the spray-on liner, or both) will have a greater chance of survival.

Cosmic radiation is probably the least of your worries. Unless you can shield yourself from nearly all of it (which is difficult at best), you can actually make your exposure worse because the cosmic radiation will interact with the material in the shielding to produce secondary radiation which can actually be worse than the cosmic radiation itself since it will interact more readily with matter (i.e., you).

But a lot of solar radiation is not nearly as energetic as cosmic radiation, and besides it would be very useful to have a protective heat sink so that your living quarters don't get too hot during the lunar "day" or too cold during the lunar "night."

Re:But... (1)

Auraiken (862386) | more than 5 years ago | (#26437359)

It's because everything in your basement is at equilibrium in a pressurized container already, so theres not much force in terms of it pushing everything into or out of your basement.

The problem with the moon is that you have a bubble where everything inside it wants to explode (not literally) outwards to occupy more space and it makes for quite the engineering challenge. You then have to have some way of containing that from the outside in order to make it structurally sound and to protect it from the radiation outside. It might be best to send some sort of digger out there to make a tunnel of some sort where you can then inflate the habitat inside of it.

Self healing foam would be a short term solution if there is nothing stopping the thing from expanding more.

You just have to hold your breath for the two weeks when the sun *isn't* shining and your life-support systems won't work.

The batteries required to keep you alive for a fortnight would be very heavy,probably too heavy to transport to the moon economically. However, you might be able to set up some sort of energy storage using local materials (pumping regolith uphill during the day, letting it fall at night and recapturing the energy.) Of course in any stored-energy solution, your panels have to be capturing >200% the energy you are actually using in order to keep store enough for the night time.

The peaks of eternal light aren't quite eternal, and there aren't a lot of them, and they only exist in one place at the north pole.

You ought to be able to generate a minimal amount of power during the night from starlight and/ or earthlight (assuming your panels aren't on the dark side), but I have no idea how much light those sources produce compared to lunar daytime. Not much, I'm guessing. Almost certainly not enough to keep you alive, unless you have a massive over-abundance of panelling.

Of course, you could put some mirrors in orbit to bounce sunlight onto your panels even at night, that would be handy. The other option is to have panels all over the moon so that there are always some of them in sunlight, and cables to carry the power to where it's needed, but that would be a massive undertaking, you might as well just go nuclear.

All told, solar energy for the moon is limited to very few uses. Anything that needs more than 50% uptime is no good. Maybe a few panels for secondary backup power (in case both your primary AND secondary power sources fail).

... Followed by two weeks of cold and darkness. Better have some really good batteries, or a good transmission system to that moon base on the far side so that you can supply each other with energy when the sun goes down on your respective sides. At least on Earth you don't have to store the energy for so long, which does help somewhat.

The lunar poles aren't much better: You never do get a lot of light on a lot of surface area unless you build some very large hills or towers so that you always have a large surface area pointing at the sun, plus you only get two possible locations for your colony.

Still, probably not a bad tradeoff if you can solve the problems.

yes, this approach is extremely energy hungry, not something you want to try on your first run. Maybe you don't have to, you might be able to just dig tunnels. The big question is so - how densely is the regolith packed? My experience with the simulant used by NASA showed it's really fragile even if you compress it at 10,000 psi. But the Apollo astronauts reported a rock-like consistency when they tried to dig deeper than a few inches. 4 billion years of compaction will do that. Will it be strong enough to support underground structures so, that's the unknown until someone goes up and actually tries to dig down. You might need the bricks just to clad out your tunnels so, you definitely don't want to get into contact with regolith, nasty abrasive, and probably a big inhalation health hazard in the long run.

hattig (47930) | more than 5 years ago | (#26435367)

Why not just scrape away 20ft of regolith, build structures with bricks made from the regolith, and re-cover with the remaining regolith? Sure, you can tunnel downwards from there as opposed to outwards, but I'm sure it's easier to use diggers and explosives to dig a big pit initially than it is to tunnel initially. Then you might as well expand outwards as you have the diggers and brick making facilities in place.

Of course, by the time we're doing that on the moon, there'll probably be a way to build giant structural arches and domes using carbon nanotubes by some form of extrusion growing process that just needs the regolith as input, a power source, and something to take the finished goods away and erect them.

Anyway, the biggest problem on the moon is the moon dust itself, which is really sharp and sticky, and thus really bad to get in your lungs, and nearly impossible to filter out in an airlock, and in a location with sparse water... ick.

cowscows (103644) | more than 5 years ago | (#26437951)

Generally any sort of inhabited tunnel/vault/underground space is not just exposed dirt/rock walls and ceiling. There's almost always some sort of lining. I think some of the fancier giant tunnel boring machines used here on earth actually have a system that sprays concrete on the tunnel walls as they digs it out.

Whatever it's made of, there's a number of good reasons to have some sort of liner. It can provide additional structural support. It can stop dust from falling from the walls. It can make the tunnel water-tight(not particularly important on the moon). Depending on how it's built, it can provide a layer to more conveniently run power/lights/whatever. And I'm sure there are some other reasons.

Since concrete will likely be in rather short supply on the moon, maybe these bricks are the best replacement. Plus you still need material to create internal partitions, and no matter how extensive your tunnel city becomes, you're most certainly have some number of surface buildings for various reasons.

Of course, as long as it is built (or dug) sufficiently large, there's no reason why "indoors" couldn't have trees, fields, plants, lakes, houses, simulated weather...

There's no reason to simulate weather. Any significantly large space will have climates you can't finely control. With that said, there are few reasons to have real trees. Most nutrient rich foods (like spinach and beans) don't take much space to grow. Lakes, fields and trees may not have much value until tourism plays a role in colonization. You don't need a Biosphere 2 -- if carbon can be treated as a closed system, the plants you eat should soak up what you exhale. As long as you have plants on hand for every person introduced instead of supplying additional MREs or the like, the system should balance out. If colonists lose weight, one may need to sequester some carbon to even things out, but that's a different discussion.

Wood is a pretty poor choice in building material, made mostly due to tradition. Cheap and abundant lumber is often cited as a reason for building with wood, but the price of lumber is an effect of the size of the industry, not the cause. Concrete prices would likely be similar per sqft of living space, if not lower, were every home built out of it, and we could still use paneling to recreate the comforting familiarity of wood. It's not like either the exteriors OR interiors of most homes are actual wood these days -- it's usually vinyl siding and gypsum plaster (AKA drywall or sheetrock) respectively.. nothing that couldn't be used over a concrete structure.

As a nice "side" effect, building homes out of concrete would lower insurance prices substantially, cellulose-eating pests would be a nonissue (for structural components), and we wouldn't be rebuilding entire counties after hurricanes, floods, and minor to moderate quakes.

I thought it was because it's easy to work with (in terms of tools) and easy to make modifications to in the future.

I'll probably do my next construction project using ICF's, but I have no illusions I'll need to hire a pumper truck for several pours, and I'm not going to be changing the building or mechanicals layouts, ever.

On the other hand, wood is renewable and does valuable work (for humans) while it's growing.

I'm no expert, but as many arguments as there are against clear-cutting, strip-mining lime and aggregate seems worse.

RTFA. People like you justify the necessity of this acronym.

It's aluminum dust and rock heated to 2700 degrees farenheit. No portland cement on the moon you know.

You had a hundred billion chances and ways to have avoided the cosmic rays, but you decided to spill my mutated DNA. You forced me into a brick corner and gave me only one option. The decision was yours. Now you have brick dust on your hands that will never wash off.

Ummm...why not just live in tunnels or caves. We cannot allow a mine-shaft gap! That would provide better structure for pressurized environments and protection from tiny meteorites.

While I applaud the ingenuity of all involved, I must say I've seen more clever and useful ideas at the occasional high-school science fair.

1. The chemical composition of lunar surface material has been known for quite some time.

2. It would literally be child's play to produce a workable cement or concrete mixture from the regolith. Absolutely high-school chemistry.

3. Thermal curing is self-evident.

4. (Kudos, I suppose, for using a wire down the middle of a brick to compensate for the lack of a thermally conductive medium, like an atmosphere.)

5. Why would one ever consider using bricks on the moon? I can't think of a less-logical building material for the lunar environment. The less seams in your construct, the better.

I understand that the curing method could easily be applied to larger modules, if not whole structures at once. You could 'cure' an entire building at once, for example, if you designed it the right way.

But the article seems to be going out of it's way to focus on the manufacture of 'bricks'; which to me means 'mortar', which to me means 'seams', and that rhymes with 'means', there will be trouble in Lunar City.
