Abstract [en]

This paper explores how the figure of Spaceship Earth formatted the global environmental discourse in the late twentieth century. In a time of rising environmental consciousness, the spaceship, like the ark, held out the hope of preserving life and nature in scientifically managed natural-technological environments on earth and beyond. I will discuss how systems ecology, human ecology, and biosphere technology turned the earth into a complex and self-contained circulatory system with limited capacity, and the earthly biosphere into a life-support system.
