Mountains Through a Glass Prism

During the next few days, I will take you on a photo tour of the Biosphere Project.

The Biosphere Project is a man-made materially enclosed ecological system located in Oracle, Arizona, which is near Tucson.

I took a tour of the inside of the buildings and was able to take this photo looking outside to the mountains.

This was a very interesting research project that explored closed systems for use in space colonization.

The initial project cost over $200 million.

I remember reading about this some years ago! I thought it the project had been abandoned due to a variety of problems, including financial ones. Guess not. I, too, will look forward to seeing more of what's going on now.

Do they have a jungle in the biosphere? Looking through the glass prisms into the desert must make a knot in everyone's brain... :)
