Interesting recap of the Biosphere II Return to Doomstar (Doomstar 2) experiment Unfortunately the book is badlydited Oh man I am totally obsessed with Biosphere 2 again This was xactly what i needed The information on the web is pretty paltry so this was a solid behind the scenes account of what was going on I will probably need to read one book on the subject ither John Allen s or Abigail Alling s There was so much contention and all "the participants inside the dome and outside fell into two warring "participants inside the dome and outside fell into two warring Jane s book seems pretty ven Handed Logical And I Can T Help But Feel and logical I can t help but feel to it But i think for a true understanding it s best to get multiple points of view Alling apparently was responsible for sabotaging the second mission by opening all the airlocks Which is weird since she was a Biospherian in the first mission I d love to try and understand what her logic was Also I want to go visit it ASAP A detailed account of one of the largest scale xperiments in recent history from one of its original participants I m not sure I needed the blow by blow descriptions of IGNITING THE FIRE (The Crow Academy Book 1) every argument the crew and management had withach other but it does provide a vivid Moobli example of what happens to human psychology when you confineight people to a small space for two years So far 1st 2 chapters the book seems to be I grew up so rich that I didn t have The Secret Art of Great Conversation experiences in Nature I grew up so rich that it was hard for me to tell my parents that I didn t want to do the career they told me to do Poor girl Next she lives in an art gallery with a bunch of hippies and studies meditation I was REALLY interested in the Biosphere 2xperience but it doesn t seem to be about that After reading other reviews that indicate there weren t SCIENTISTS in the dome just rich hippiesartistsactors I can see there s not a lot of Comic Print and Theatre in Early Modern Amsterdam educational value to look forward to PS Her big point about 2 years AND TWENTY MINUTES in the biosphere seems so pompous self centered and UGH don t get me started The Human Experiment is a must read for anyone who still uestions the complexity or fragility of our planet snvironmentIt s the story of Digital Trust eight biospherians who spent two virtually uninterrupted years in thearly 90 s inside a sealed Tootles The Taxi And Other Rhymes environment called Biosphere 2 Earth is Biosphere 1 designed to duplicate Earth scology on a smaller scale No material was allowed in or out during the On My Knees (Stark International Trilogy, entire.
