Overview Effect

Learn to understand the overview effect, a psychological phenomenon which transformed all 558 astronauts who have seen our planet from space.

“We went to the moon, but we actually discovered Earth."

A team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania examined the testimonies of hundreds of astronauts who had the opportunity to view the Earth from space. Their analysis uncovered three common feelings:
1. a greater appreciation for Earth's beauty;
2. an increased sense of connection to all other living beings;
3. an unexpected, often overwhelming sense of emotion.
