Video of life changing stories from astronauts returning to Earth

I’d encourage everyone to watch this amazing 19 minute video documenting astronauts’ life changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside (aka a ‘Overview Effect’).
The Overview Effect was first described by author Frank White in 1987 and is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of planet Earth 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.
This short 19 minute video called’ overview’ also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.
