Spaceship Earth and Magic Wand

Spaceship Earth is a geodesic sphere and the symbol of Epcot (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) and is located at Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, Florida.

Ray Bradbury assisted in the design and story-line of the attraction but the term ‘Spaceship Earth’ was coined by Buckminster Fuller, who also developed the structural mathematics of the geodesic dome. [1]

Visitors are taken on a 13 minute time machine themed ride through the advancement in human communication from the assumed origins of prehistoric man to the dawn of the 21st century.

The wand was removed in 2007.

Falling water creates negative ions that are highly conducive to health and well-being increasing the flow of oxygen to the brain thereby raising awareness.
