Hey ATS, came across some info on the Eden Project located in Cornwall in the UK and thought I would share because I have never seen it posted before. This place is truly amazing and I would love to be able to visit the site some day to check things out.




The Eden Project is a visitor attraction in Cornwall in the United Kingdom, including the world's largest greenhouse.[1][2] Inside the artificial biomes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit, located 2 kilometres (1.25 mi) from the town of St Blazey and 5 kilometres (3 mi) from the larger town of St Austell, Cornwall.

The complex is dominated by two gigantic enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house plant species from around the world. Each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment.

Nice!
This is how everyone should live, in thier own little bio dome.
Plant some fruits and veggies(& ganja) and chill.
And if you wanted, your neighbors can connect domes and widen the community, then just keep connecting with other ppls domes....
man the world would be a great place if this were our domestication.

I bet there's no GMO in there. Looks like a good way to protect the gene pool of plants from the poison they are spreading - along with the seed bank in Norway, this would go a long way to ensuring little loss if the planet is somehow sterilized.

Then again... If that happened, the domes probably wouldn't survive. But who knows.

Off topic, maybe but not entirely.
The Flaming Lips will be performing at the Eden project in June.
Would be an awesome place for a gig, but they top it by playin Jodrell bank next
