Biosphere 2 saw its beginning in the mid to late 80’s in a project that was meant to mimic the way the earth sustains life. The end game for this was to learn how to build and operate life sustaining bubbles that could be built in space or on other planets. In the process of this experiment useful research was done that helped us better understand Biosphere 1, or Earth as we know it.

The Glass Ark presents a youth friendly explanation of this monumental experiment. If you would like to know more about the Biosphere 2 facility today check out this site –
