Jane Poynter: Life in Biosphere 2
“Is life this malleable? Can you take this biosphere that is evolved on a planetary level…and will it survive?”
Jane Poynter candidly discusses her 2 year stint living in “Biosphere 2″ a man-made biosphere designed to model planet earth, only…smaller. So that we might one day be able to live in hostile environments – or even another planet.
(I also recommend listening for the story of Jane’s rake).
This talk is from TEDxUSC. And is also the first TEDx talk to be released by TED (via the TED blog)!!
Like TEDxTelAviv, TEDx events are being launched all over the world, from Sydney to Capetown, Qatar to Fiji. And of course here. You can find a full list of TEDx events here.
Looking forward to “spreading ideas” on “thriving on turmoil” with you all from this side of the world later this year! (You can keep updated with TEDxTelAviv by signing up on the top right)
