The true, stranger-than-fiction, adventure of eight visionaries who in 1991 spent two years quarantined inside of a self-engineered replica of Earth's ecosystem called Biosphere 2. The experiment was a worldwide phenomenon, chronicling daily existence in the face of life threatening ecological disaster and a growing criticism that it was nothing more than a cult. The bizarre story is both a cautionary tale and a hopeful lesson of how a small group of dreamers can potentially re-imagine a new world.
Because as part of a west coast fam vacation- my father TOOK me here to see this (when they were still inside)! Had no idea all this drama went on behind the scenes, and honestly I'm still fascinated by the concept (all of which I didnt really understand as a kid). But to see now that this was really just a glorified science experiment by very smart and financially secure hippy folks wanting to live in a commune...it all made sense.
