Rainforest Under the Glass Prism

Here is a photo of the length of the rainforest in Biosphere 2.

You can see the size of the sealed structure is quite large. Although if you lived in it for two years sealed away from Earth, it might feel confined after a certain period of time.

There is passive solar input through the glass panels that covers most of the facility.

I'm sure I would feel very confined after a few days, but it really is a large place to be contained under glass. :)

This is an impressive structure and it was an ambitious experiment. I think I would feel confined after after a couple of hours. I would prefer a real rain forest in Costa Rica.

This reminds me of those small Christmas snow globes and being caught inside one.

As beautiful as it is, I don't think I would enjoy being locked in there.

Where you in a glass cave?

I would imagine the type of people picked for this project would be a factor in the success or failure. Not only were they confined to a rather small environment but compatability would also be relative.
