"The Biosphere Project consists of natural ecosystems isolated inside sealed containers that only allow the external influence of heat and light. These systems, like our planet, depend on light as a source of  energy for the development and continued existence of the life cycles that take place inside of them. These systems represent our planet in an infinitesimal scale, and show its fragility and the importance and urgency of its care. »Action is warranted despite the uncertainty of the expected results,..."

The sun is the only thing that has remained virtually unchanged and connects that past, millions of years ago, with the present. Solar flowers and insects represent a hinge between the Antarctic fossils past and the future; where human’s  technological capacity has begun to unravel the mystery of life and this could mean the recreation of..."
