The Overview Effect and the 40th anniversary of the famous Blue Marble photograph

The Overview Effect is about self-awareness and the realization of who and where we are within the grand scheme of the Universe.

‘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..’

As said by Carl Sagan:

One of the great revelations of space exploration
Is the image of the earth, finite and lonely
Bearing the entire human species
Through the oceans of space and time

We’ve begun at last
To wonder about our origins
Star stuff contemplating the stars
Tracing that long path

Our obligation to survive and flourish
Is owed not just to ourselves
But also to that cosmos
Ancient and vast, from which we spring
