Overview Effect ~ Perspective on Earth & Mankind

Thanks to Kottke for spotting 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."
