Biosphere 2 was a unique architectural and ecological experiment of particular relevance to today. Spaceship Earth tells the fascinating story of the futurist complex in which eight idealistic scientists hermetically sealed themselves off from the outside world for two years in the 1990s. Inspired by the work of Buckminster Fuller and the science fiction film Silent Running, they embarked on a crazy experiment in voluntary quarantine, by the standards of which today’s Covid-19 isolation pales into insignificance. Never before has the story with the dramatic conclusion, including original footage of the ‘biospherians’, been told so revealingly.
