Review of Service

I'd lived in Tucson for years and never got around to seeing this. I ended up waiting until I'd moved to Phoenix before I bothered to go take a look. I guess I just couldn't be a tourist in my own town. Makes me wonder if I'll ever bother to go see the grand canyon.

This was pretty cool. A few acres of entirely enclosed and self-sustaining space (including air and water), with no supplies other than sunlight. People lived sealed in here for months, or at least they did was when it was used solely as a research facility. There was a tide pool (mechanical tides), hydroponic gardens, . It was supposed to simulate a space colony. Pretty cool, maybe even worth the $20.


What do you tell a tourist who's going to see a perfectly safe exhibition? Bring a camera and plenty of film or a spare memory card.
