The luminous vision of Earth from space reveals one human family. Boundaries and differences that seem insurmountable at ground level are diminished, illuminating the understanding that all people have the same desires for love, safety, happiness, and acceptance. The "overview effect," first described in 1987 by science writer Frank White, is the cognitive shift experienced by astronauts while in space. With sudden clarity, they understand that the Earth — home to everyone and everything we have ever known — is a pulsing, swirling, living place that we must protect.
