i vaguely remember learning about biosphere 2 in 9th grade biology, but today i learned about the documentary that came out last year!

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/29/sunday-review/biosphere-2-climate-change.html https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/jul/13/spaceship-earth-arizona-biosphere-2-lockdown

i didn't realize steve bannon was attached to the project at one point...and also how fascinating the 8 biospherians were as people (they were not scientists!!). hadn't thought about the biosphere as a communal living experiment in the ninth grade but that's the most fascinating part for me now.
