Ecosphere - Medium
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. Each EcoSphere is a completely sealed ecosystem. It contains active micro-organisms - thats red shrimp and algae to you and me - in a clear ‘soup’ of filtered sea-water. Simply provide the EcoSphere with indirect natural or artificial light and the ecosystem will thrive without needing further attention.
EcoSpheres have a life expectancy of two to three years but it is not uncommon for a system to last much longer – some have continued for over 10 years. The Medium Ecosphere comes in either a round or oval design. More of a display piece, with 8 shrimp and hand-cut Gorgonia, the Medium Round Ecosphere is a sure fire talking point wherever you keep it, whilst the Medium Oval Ecosphere (which also comes with 8 shrimp) is a taller and leaner in shape.
Space Age Technology. 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. What is an EcoSphere? An EcoSphere is a working ecological system and its biological cycle represents a simple version of Earth’s own ecosystem. While beautiful to look at, it demonstrates the delicate balance of a closed system like the Earth and contains some of the same essential elements that are found on our planet.
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.
