On the 40th anniversary (as of 2013) of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.

The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is 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, 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. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.

    That is very interesting that in this nice beautiful movie there is no at all any christian sign, any christian priest ! But there is everything else ! The idea of this movie is masonic and to tell people that there is no God ! The nice movie telling to us evolutionary story of life coincidence but there is no story of Creator at all ! Behind this miracle of Earth and life is Creator ! In movie they telling false evolution point of view which as we know tells us that we can kill others because of no Creator in the great Universe !

    Couldn’t help but wonder.. A space mission in which all the leaders of the various nations across the world join together and take an overview of our planet Earth….

    An area where such a perspective-altering experience can bring about a positive impact… a renewed sense of responsibility for each other…

    Just day dreaming…
