Most of us will not get a chance to orbit Earth in space but others have and the view from space can change their perspective of what it means a member of spaceship Earth.

One group that would like more of us to experience this "Overview Effect" has shared this Vimeo short film.
It is only 19 minutes and I hope you enjoy the view.

A Short Film Looks at "the Overview Effect"

How are astronauts affected when they gain the perspective of looking at the Earth from space? On the 40th anniversary 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.

OVERVIEW

Released 7th December 2012

At the end of 2011, we filmed a short documentary about astronauts' experiences in space called OVERVIEW, due for release in the last quarter of 2012. The film is both a stand-alone short film and a prelude to CONTINUUM<http://www.planetarycollective.com/continuum>, introducing many of the key ideas expanded upon in the feature documentary.

SYNOPSIS

Astronauts who have seen the Earth from space have often described the 'overview effect' as an experience that has transformed their perspective of the planet and mankind's place upon it, and enabled them to perceive it as our shared home, without boundaries between nations or species.

OVERVIEW is a short film that will explore this perspective through interviews with 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 humanity as a whole, and especially its relevance to how we meet the tremendous challenges facing our planet at this time.

On the 40th anniversary 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.
