Mural Description

Biosphere 2, Tucson, Arizona. 2008. A $30 million gift from the Philecology Foundation, founded by Edward P. Bass, funds Biosphere 2 operations and some research projects. Other grants and awards, primarily from the National Science Foundation, also support research activities. In the 1800s, the Biosphere 2 property was part of the Samaniego's CDO Ranch. After several changes of ownership, it became a conference center in the 1960s and 1970s, first for Motorola, then for The University of Arizona. Space Biospheres Ventures, bankrolled by Bass, bought the property in 1984 and began construction of the current facility in 1986 to research and develop self-sustaining space-colonization technology. Two missions, between 1991 and 1994, sealed Biospherians inside the glass enclosure to measure survivability. Behind this highly public exercise was useful research that helped further ecological understanding. An insider's perspective on this experiment is provided by Jane Poynter, a veteran of Mission I, in The Human Experiment: Two Years and Twenty Minutes Inside Biosphere 2. LC-DIG-highsm-04715. Carol M. Highsmith's America, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division.

Tranquility at Home

"...I searched for wall murals and your web site popped up. I could not believe all the choices. I decided to wall mural my closet doors. I ordered on a Wednesday and received the package on Monday. The installation went very easy and I did it myself! As you can see it is perfect. Just how I had it pictured in my mind. I posted the pictures on Facebook and everyone went nuts! I am so happy with the product and wanted to share."
