Buckminster Fuller, the architect and inventor whose investigations into the principles of nature influenced his . Well written, very helpful. My Spaceship Earth had a strange knocking sound, the manual suggested this could be caused by continental drift and was a normal part of planet ownership. Planet still having heating problems with no fix yet, so -1 star. Price of book defiantly worth not having to have the damn thing by:   Being self-contained means that nothing new enters the Ship except sunlight and a few random meteorites or asteroids, and nothing leaves it except hydrogen, other gases, and some human-made rockets and debris. On Spaceship Earth practically everything remains aboard forever in one form or another including ourselves and our remains. The ride itself is a slow ride through the history of our time on earth and is very informative. See the inside of the big ball at Epcot. Great ride t teaches you a little about history and it is really interesting you get to make a fun video about the future and I use your face you can also email the video to yourself to show all your friends 4/5().
