Seven of the eight 'biospherians' pose for the press from the inside of the Biosphere 2 building, their home for the next two years. They are (top row l-r) Sally Silverstone, Abigail Alling, Taber McCallum, Linda Leigh, Mark Nelson and (bottom, l- r) Roy Walford and Jane Poynter. They will share their 3-acre glass building with 3,800 species of plants and animals. As the building is air- and water-tight, they will use the four terrain 'biomes' to control their environment, the only inputs being sunlight and electrical power. The $150-million project is privately funded, but is expected to make a profit from a visitor centre.
