#acre structure which #structure which five biomes representing the most important ecological zones on Earth This is exactly the type of environment people would have to live in if they wanted to colonize Mars or some other far flung planetIt s hard to decide which is scarier the almost clownish debates between the top scientists of the day between the top scientists of the day how the plants animals humans and billions of microbes contained within the mini environment would interact in a closed system or the desperate fight by the biospherians to control the levels of carbon dioxide exhaled by animals and produced by many other biological processes versus the levels of oxygen generated by the plant life within the structure sound familiarThe book is also a fascinating study
human interactions in a closed system biospherians good friends at the outset eventually formed into two opposing groups who were spitting on each other by the time the experiment was overFascinating in so many ways interaction between man and the environment between project management and the captive biospherians between the project and the press between the management and the scientists they hired to oversee the experimentHighly recommended. N a riveting fast paced trip through shattered lives scientific discovery cults love fears of insanity and inspiring human endurance The eight biospherians who closed themselves into the Biosphere emerged 730 days later much wiser thinner and having done what many had said was impossible. ,Of Human Interactions In A Closed System
