Do you remember the Biosphere II project? One of my childhood dreams was to live in Biosphere II. I remember thinking that it was really unfair that kids couldn't take part in the experiment. I wanted to live in outer space too or maybe under the ocean! So, why couldn't I live in Biosphere II? :o)
Here's a speech Jane Poynter, one of the lucky inhabitants of Biosphere II, gave recently. At it's heart her talk is about the absolute connectedness and impact we have on each other and the biosphere we call Earth.
