亚利桑那州图森附近的生物圈2, operated by the University of Arizona, looks like a spaceship just dropped from the sky. Almost all glass, with green leaves pressing up against every side, it’s an amazing sight.

Biosphere 2 is a recreation of our planet, Biosphere 1. So, just like Earth, it has a couple of different ecosystems. Examples include the ocean with coral reef and the tropical rainforest. It’s an amazing experience to move from hot and humid — to cold and dry — to dry and hot — while you’re walking through the indoor tour.

Biosphere Tucson- What to expect

不要指望原始环境或主题公园风格的设施。这是一个有效实验的工作研究设施。如果雨林看起来干燥,那就是因为研究人员正在研究干旱的影响。如果“海洋”看起来朦胧,这是因为他们正在研究如何恢复珊瑚增长并保持海洋环境在自然平衡中。Biosphere 2makes it easy to imagine what the world would look like without buildings. I think it’s definitely worth a visit if you are into science. I mean,how many chances are you going to have to walk in the largest earth science experiment in the world?

这次旅行在白天定期运行。基本“玻璃下”导致您进入所有生态系统和地下技术圈。技术圈是3英亩的较低水平,包括保持所有温度所需的所有设备和生物圈运行。整个层面都充满了机械,都在做一些不同的东西。

生物圈2历史

1991年,八个研究人员进入生物圈2,住在那里,照顾环境2年。他们被称为生物家。他们研究了生物圈,学会了生活。他们只允许每月一次喝咖啡!

生物圈2还有一个小型展览区域,楼上从你走进建筑物时。你站在主住房区,生物家在实验期间生活。这个博物馆有一个展览馆旅行。正在学习的人Biosphere 2正试图弄清楚的方法来保持像空间的生物圈一样!您还可以看到生物席位在生物圈实验中的时间居住的地方。从生物主管的实际期刊阅读期刊条目非常有趣。它在他们的生活方式和他们在实验经验中处理了一个全新的视角。

Biosphere 2should be on everyone’s list of places to go and experiences to have. It may not be like famous museums in New York or the Louvre in Paris, but it’s truly amazing to learn what our earth does and how we impact it, good and bad.

生物圈2-我们喜欢旅游的东西

  • My parents liked that we each got an audio player and a single earbud. We could hear our guide without having to cram up close to her. At the end of the tour, you get to keep the earbud.
  • Being in the presence of history! Whether you agree/disagree with the expense or the experiment, it happened. It’s pretty cool to be able to visit the site.
  • 为生活带来教科书!我学校的学生老师提到了在我们的教科书中出现的生物圈2和在生物圈工作。我喜欢它如何为我带来阅读。
  • 有抱负的甚至专业工程师肯定会通过所有系统兴奋地制作生物圈2居住(特别是技术圈)。
  • It shows what innovation can bring about in simple ways. For instance, they have a garden planted outside and wanted to do some experimentation with how to grow plants outdoors in this desert environment. The impacts of the sun, powering the sprinklers, pests (in the form of hungry deer) were all challenges. So one solution they came up with was installing a solar panel above some of the crops to shade them and power the sprinklers.
  • 他们还对害虫安装了保护。与对照图相比,新的阴影图普遍增长。它对我来说是一种印象,因为它非常简单,但很聪明。此外,它是一种对环境有益的解决方案。
  • 我们喜欢旅游,前后time for self-guided exploration of the upstairs living quarters and for walking around the outside of the building to the ocean viewing area which had the feel of an aquarium facility.
  • 月球温室(如下图所示)在展览区域上楼上,他们正在成长:草莓(2个品种),黄瓜(3个品种),红薯,午餐盒和西红柿(3个品种)。

生物圈2旅游信息

  • 从图森的Sabino Canyon地区开车到生物圈2位点约45分钟。如果您留在大学附近,这需要更少的时间。
  • From the parking lot, you enter the visitor center and ticket purchase area.
  • 距离实际的生物圈建筑约有五到十分分钟的户外步行。
  • 有一个咖啡馆,但我们没有尝试。我建议在你去之前吃饮食。
  • It’s definitely better for children ages 10 & up — and since it’s an active science experiment it’s NOT at all accessible for strollers, wheelchairs, or anyone with mobility issues.
  • The “New Tours TV Spot” video on the Biosphere 2 website was not true to our experience. It shows small groups interacting with the exhibits (walking through the rainforest and putting their hands in the ocean). Maybe that happens on the family or history tour, but that does not happen on the Under the Glass Tour. Instead, imagine staying on a boardwalk path most of the way and going through a series of big heavy metal doors, tunnels, up & down steps, and walking up and down ramps in cramped spaces before ending your tour outdoors.
