The Art -
From hundreds of interviews with space travelers, Frank White has curated powerful and enlightening quotes about their transformative experiences. By pairing these words with photos from the NASA archives, we hope to reveal that the luminous vision of Earth from space shows one human family and a planet — a natural spaceship — without the scars of boundaries.
In his best-known book The Overview Effect: Space Exploration and Human Evolution, Frank White explores the cognitive shift experienced by astronauts while in space. With sudden clarity, they understand that Earth — home to everyone and everything we have ever known — is a pulsing, fragile, living place.
Environmental stewardship -
