UPDATED: August 17, 2006

 

Constructed between 1987 and 1989, it was used to test if and how people could live and work in a closed biosphere, while carrying out scientific experiments. Biosphere 1 is the Earth.

 

 

On January 10, 2005 Decisions Investments Corporation, owners of Biosphere 2, announced that the Biosphere 2 campus was for sale. They preferred a research use to be found for the complex but were not excluding buyers with different intentions, such as universities, churches, resorts, spas, etc. Finally, in February, 2006. Fairfield Homes agreed to purchase Biosphere 2 and use its 1600 acres (650 hectares) to build a planned community. Biosphere 2 is still open for tours and plans to be open into the future.
