58. Biosphere 2 and the Post-Nuclear Family (35 min)

May 24, 2021

Glenn Campbell reviews the 2020 documentary "Spaceship Earth" about the 1990s ecological experiment Biosphere 2. In September 1991, eight "astronauts" were locked in sealed greenhouse in the Arizona desert, where they were expected to produce their own food, water and air. It was a utopian system destined to fail, but Glenn sees lessons in it for his own speculative system, the post-nuclear family. — Twitter: @DemographicDoom — See the YouTube version of this episode for notes, comments, corrections & links to other resources: j.mp/dd_biosphere [ep 58, 24 May 2021]
