Mini-Geo-Engineering

  1. I don’t know, but I doubt it. During the actual biosphere “mission,” they seem to have not thought much about microbes, and were surprised that so many in the soil sucked out their oxygen. There are now experiments on, for example, “rainforest” growth with lots of plants but no intentional cultivation of insects or other animals, which suggest that they’re not thinking much about microbes. There are also some experiments on soil generation from rock, which probably do involve microbes. The place is run by U of Arizona now, so I imagine that most of the experiments involve faculty there. It would be interesting to find out more!
