That jet skis are a contribution to science is a very dubious claim. That said, all Biosphere II proved is that it will be hard for humans to get along in space during long voyages. Other than that, whatever "discoveries" made during the Biosphere "experiment" are at best pseudo-science. Nevertheless, it makes neat tourist attraction.


Yep that does indeed make a lot of sense.
