“There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all
– Marshall McLuhan
Deep in the Arizona desert, there’s an
enormous glass terrarium where a miniature replica
of earth’s ecosystem lives called Biosphere 2.
In 1991, a group of countercultural visionaries brought this controversial
science experiment to life to prepare for life on Mars. But when eight
“biospherians” went to live hermetically sealed under the glass for two years, their mission was soon faced
with ecological calamities and cult accusations. Despite these tribulations,
the biospherians completed their mission, coalescing to manage their impact on
a model environment. That is until their miniature world was taken over. This
is an epic story about the forces that threaten our planet, but also the power
of small groups to literally reimagine the world.
