UNDER THE DOME
Like the outerspace bio-dome in the
1972 sci-fi film "Silent Running",
the Climatron is an earth-based version of
a climate controlled geodesic dome,
containing a year-round tropical jungle
of exotic palms and plants.
Interestingly, it felt cool to enter
the Climatron's usual tropical climate,
compared with St. Louis' 100+˚(F)
Cubanola trumpet blossoms
cascaded down from the central waterfall,
with many rare tropical flowers
What a gorgeous treasure!
