The self-sustaining BIODOME....

Biosphere 2 is a 3.15-acre (12,700 m2) structure originally built to be a man-made, materially-closed ecological system in Oracle, Arizona by Space Biosphere Ventures.

I have seen this before when I googled about things that I could do near Tucson --- and I finally brought the twins to this amazing complex!

It was like that enclosed science experiment in the movie BIODOME --- a comedy about two odd guys locked up in a self-sustaining "Biodome" for months...I asked the guide if it was filmed there and our guide said, "No, that's only in Hollywood..." But the place looks strikingly similar to the one in the movie...

The twins with our professional guide, Norm!

Yes, the name of the our guide happened to be Norman as well...the twins followed him everywhere!
