Now for ten points...

In a discussion recently the topic came up about an experiment in the US which involved a sealed mini-ecosystem replete with people, to see if the closed system was viable, or for how long, or something like that. Was this kicked off in the 70s?

Obviously my memory of this thing is quite poor. Does anyone have any recollection? I can't really look it up on the net, because I can't remember what it was called (subject line is my best guess).

(It came up related to living in Canberra, Australia (the nation's capital!!!). It's the cultural version of the above closed system experiment in my opinion, and I think the entropy has increased beyond the ability to sustain a human (intellectual) life).
