L'effetto Overview


Ho scoperto questo sito, Daily Overview, in cui viene condivisa quotidianamente una foto scattata da un satellite. Il progetto è ispirato dall'Overview Effect, raccontato dal video qui sotto.

The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts' perspective of 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. 'Overview' is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The film also features important commentary on the wider implications of this new understanding for both our society, and our relationship to the environment
