The Overview Effect

YouTube description:

Astronauts' life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside are a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.

It was first described by author Frank White in 1987.

Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

"Overview'" is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect.
