Biosphere 2, the world's largest greenhouse (PICTURES)
    #172710 - 12/30/08 09:19 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

this place is a research facility that re-created the Earth inside a dome. Originally the mission was for 8 people to live inside for 2 years without leaving and they would grow their own food, ect ect

I wonder if they catch any fish?  That's what I'd probably want to do.

that's one of the main reason they failed. They couldnt get enough calories to keep living in a reasonable manner.

Yep, Bio-dome. The dome set vacant for a period of 4 years after the 2 owners got into an agrument over the direction Biosphere was taking. That is when the movie was made, part of the profit going to re-open Biosphere 2 which was ran by Columbia University for quite awhile until it was handed over to University of Arizona a couple years ago

What is even more amazing that the plants and all the life housed in there, is the mechanics that are underneath it and help keep each environment at its respective climate. We literally walked from the desert where it was 95 degrees and dry. To the rainforest where it was 70.

18$, but 1/2 of that goes directly to research and is tax-deductible as a research donation.

It was money well spent

nope. I went in and looked around for about 45 minutes before the tour started and stayed for another 30 minutes after the tour ended. Was probably there for about 3 hours

They used to have a bunch of tropical birds in this one until they stopped the bulk of their research. Now everything they do are specialized research projects. They used to have a bunch of awesome looking snakes as well. Nature is awesome :yesnod:

Get myself out of debt. I have about 2,500 in debt that I am working on clearing out. Definitely pick of some kush and other goodies too. But bulk of it is going to debt.

Im getting some camping supplies as well.

Anyone who has tripped has tripped in the Biosphere
The reason this place is called Biosphere 2 is because the Earth is Biosphere 1 :tongue:

all controlled by machines. The guy said they only have about 25 staff members, 10 of which are in charge of maintenance and repairing equipment.
