Biosphere is legit

It's your call jXB

September 26, 1991

Biosphere II is legitimate science, according to most callers to SUNDIAL, though most would not participate in the venture.

Eight people entered Biosphere II, a sealed glass house a stone's throw from Tucson, Ariz., this morning for a two-year stay. They will grow and recycle everything they use. Of 260 callers, 62 percent believed the experiment is a worthy one scientifically, rather than more like a stunt, but 58 percent (155 callers) said they would not be willing to participate.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
