LEO is the world’s largest laboratory experiment in the interdisciplinary Earth sciences. The experiment consists of three artificial landscapes contained within elaborate steel structures outfitted with over 1800 sensors that monitor physical and chemical changes in LEO. The structures are located inside three adjacent bays that once housed the original Biospherians on a mission to measure survivability. Each structure measures 30 meters long, 11 meters wide, with an average slope of 10° and containing over one million pounds of crushed basalt rock.
