The Overview Effect

“The earth is one system, we are all a part of that system. And that there is a certain unity and coherence to it all.” – Astronaut Frank White, Apollo 8, 1968

This inspiring film documents life-changing stories from astronauts seeing Earth from space, described as, “…an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life…”

“To have that experience of awe is, at least for the moment, to let go of yourself, to transcend the sense of separation.” – David Joy, philosopher
