Space Building at Biosphere 2

This is a photo of one of the futuristic buildings that are part of the Biosphere Project in Oracle, Arizona.

The Biosphere Project was built between 1987 and 1991 and sits on approximately 3 acres.

The size of the closed structure is about 2.5 football fields.

The name of this Project is actually Biosphere 2. Biosphere 2 is the largest sealed structure in the world.

What is Biosphere 1? Biosphere 1 is Earth and the term represents Earth's life system and it is the only biosphere that we know of.
