Mission: Biomes

Mission: Biomes

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to live in a Desert, Rainforest or even the Tundra, you will love this site. Set up by NASA it gives you the scoop on each biome ranging from animals that live in the community to the plants that survive in each of these regions. Once you are done reading about all of them you can go on one of two missions - Help graph out weather patterns or pick the flora that would survive in each environment. In addition to this the site also offers a number of cool up-to-date graphics, which depict things like the levels of carbon monoxide on the planet, sea surface temperature, snow cover and other interesting phenomenon.

        That's awesome! You know, speaking of the root bio-, (which means life, in case you didn't know) have you heard of the biosphere? It may not exist anymore, but a bunch of scientists committed a few years of their lives to science. What they did was create an entirely man-made environment, but the catch was that they couldn't have anything from outside. I'm not sure what the conclusion was, but I have to say that that's really cool.
