Operating manual for spaceship earth by Buckminster Fuller

Operating manual for spaceship earth is a short book by R. Buckminster Fuller, first published in 1968, following an address with a similar title given to the 50th annual convention of the American Planners Association in the Shoreham Hotel, Washington D.C., on 16 October 1967

The book relates Earth to a spaceship flying through space. The spaceship has a finite amount of resources and cannot be resupplied.

Fuller would later partner with the Walt Disney Company to consult on an attraction at EPCOT Center called Spaceship Earth, which opened with the park in 1982.
