Cloud 9 bio dome
Cloud Nine is a luxury liner with its own bio-dome. Here there's grass and an artificial sun and blue sky, all set up to give its visitors the experience of being on a planet while actually being in space.
While not new to science fiction, bio-domes are very much a reality, except that the one in the Battlestar Galactica is able to reproduce the look and feel of an atmosphere, something we can only come close to with flat panel displays.
