Living in Confinement

An Exclusive Connections Conversation with Jane Poynter & Taber MacCallum

Jane Poynter and Taber MacCallum are Founders and Co-CEOs of Space Perspective, the human spaceflight company providing unprecedented access to space with its zero-emissions vehicle for individuals, researchers, and governments. They are both founding members of the Biosphere 2 design teams and part of the original eight crew members who lived for two years inside the sealed, three-acre self-sustaining habitat. Poynter authored The Human Experiment: Two Years and Twenty Minutes Inside Biosphere 2 and her TED talk on the experience has been viewed over a million times. During this conversation, we’ll learn more about how Poynter and MacCallum persevered through isolation and adversity to ultimately survive Biosphere 2.
