                                       Buckminster Fuller (credit: Dan Lindsay]

Buckminster Fuller was almost a victim of his own success. His geodesic domes enclosed more space with less material than any other architectural designs. They popped up all over the natural landscape, like mushrooms, after their invention. But the oddness of these domes---seemingly the work of a hippie dreamer---helped to pigeonhole Fuller. He was actually a very deep thinker. Here, Adam Savage of "Mythbusters" remembers something Fuller said. It was a way to explain the Earth's biosphere fragility.
