The Overview Effect: Seeing Earth from Space
According to those who have taken the ride, seeing the Earth from space changes something in your mind and soul. Author Frank White calls this "The Overview Effect". Whether a shift in consciousness, one's relationship to the Earth, the cosmos, or humanity itself, White believes a transformation occurs in those who experience the incredible vision of the MotherWorld from space. Join a group of astronauts who have been there, from sub-orbital private space explorers, to seasoned NASA trained astronauts, as they do their best to explain what may be unexplainable, and share why they believe the rest of us need the chance to experience it ourselves.
