Documentary: "Overview"

OVERVIEW from Planetary Collective on Vimeo.

The Planetary Collective "Overview" was released December 7, 2012. On the 40th anniversary of the final launch of the Apollo missions to the Moon, a new short film “Overview” has been released, which explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced first-hand seeing Earth from space.

Frank White’s book “The Overview Effect,” was published in 1987 describing the Overview Effect  as a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts and cosmonauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from orbit or from the lunar surface. It has been described as one being completely engulfed by a profound sense of universal connectedness.

Space journalist Jeff Foust recently penned an article in Space Review entitled "The Overview Effect at 25" in which he speaks with the book's author.
