Caption: Biosphere 2 research facility in Oracle, Arizona, USA. The facility is a 160,000 metre squared science campus that was built between 1987 and 1991. It was originally developed to serve as a self-contained ecological system, completely closed to the outside world. Scientists have used Biosphere 2 to study the interaction between humans and nature, the impact of global warming, and even space colonisation. As of June 2014, the facility is managed by the University of Arizona.
