The SAM Team
The SAM crew will employ their own facility to establish CO2 baselines unique to each of the SAM staff. This will involve each crew member staying inside of SAM from 24-48 hours (TBD) in order to identify the CO2 production unique to their metabolism and activity. This will provide SAM the needed data for the ultimate extended, sealed experiments in the fall of 2024 in which SAM will return to the legacy of Biosphere 2 and Linda Leigh’s three week stay inside of SAM with a fully bioregenerative life support system.
