In 2019, Roberto Acuto was named a winner of Airbus Foundation and ESA’s Moon Camp Challenge, which tasked school-aged participants with designing a Moon base camp. This year, Roberto is using the 3D printer he won at the challenge to print ventilator valve fittings for use by hospitals on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy. 

Watch Matthias Maurer, ESA Astronaut, explain what the Moon Camp Challenge is!
