    Question Spaceship Earth

    ok- Since you guys know EVERYTHING (and I do not mean that sarcasticaly...!) how did SSE get it's name? I was thinking about it the other day, and I could not come up with an answer for myself. Also, does anyone know who came up with the whole idea? I know that EPCOT was supposed to be like a future city, but the imagineers thought realistically about it and decided that it was not possible to have people living in a theme park. So they eventually collided both sets (future world and world showcase). This is all I have gotten out of my imagineering books and the travel channel . Much thanks!!

    Here's another story of Epcot (formerly EPCOT Center). It's very lengthy, but very informative.

    http://www.omniluxe.net/wyw/epcot.htm

    It starts out with Walt's vision of an actual city, but then gets to the theme park, as well. It's very, very enlightening.
