What does he mean, second biosphere?

On Space.com there is an article, Moon Seen as Laboratory for Life, by Lee Pullen. In the seventh paragraph he mentions Professor Bernard Foing as saying that:




Foing says a second biosphere could be built on the Moon where humans would be able to live.


However, I see no mention of a "first" biosphere. Does this sound like he misspoke or is there, perhaps, a biosphere already existing on the moon? I am interested in why he put this statement into these particular words. Does anyone know anything about a "first" biosphere? Is this something that has been kept from our knowledge or simply a misstatement? Could there be a biosphere already existing on the moon?

I believe he may have inferred a first biosphere being built for plants/animals other than human, and if that worked out then build a second for human habitation.

Don't know for certain of course, but after reading the article that was the intent I read into it.

I think Sodom is right. The original biosphere is Earth, hence any built on the Moon would be Biosphere 2. Or, rather, 3. There's already a Biosphere 2: en.wikipedia.org...

Hi, Sodom. Yes, I am aware that there was a terrestrial biosphere project. (and I am familiar with Pauly Shore's work.)


I guess I didn't consider that's what he would be referring to in this article. My bad. I'll have to work harder, I see.

Lol, thank you Essan. I guess Earth would be the first biosphere. A bit of quick thinking there. Good job.

Thank you, Vasa Croe. Perhaps he did mean one for other terrestrial life forms.

Obviously there are many explanations that I haven't considered. It seems like if I take time to thoroughly research, the information has already been claimed here on ATS. However, posting too quickly can have repercussions as well. I am a relatively new member, and I don't always have the time to think things through thoroughly prior to posting.

Apparently, I could use more time, more patience and more brains!
( I am so mad at myself, I didn't join to seem foolish! But at least I am consistent, lol.)
I am here to learn, after all.
