Ecosphere - Large Round
Invented by NASA Scientists, The Ecosphere is the Worlds first totally enclosed Ecosystem - a complete, self contained and self sustaining miniature world encased in glass. It is simply incredible.

The Earth is represented by the gravel at the bottom, with water filling approximately two-thirds of the system and air filling the balance of the space.
Fire is represented by the light. And finally to complete the system, life – the shrimp, the algae and the bacteria. Who developed EcoSpheres? Originally discovered by two scientists, the EcoSphere is the result of technology developed at NASA’s research laboratories.
NASA scientists were researching self-contained communities for space explorers to live in during long-term space flights. And out of this work came the EcoSphere – an ecosystem of animal and plant life in perfect balance with nature. The EcoSphere is a NASA-Jet Propulsion Laboratory Technology Transfer Program. What's inside an EcoSphere? Each system comprises a clear ‘soup’ of filtered seawater containing gravel and gorgonia (the non-living branch like material) together with 8...
