Reseña del editor:

"The Overview Effect is an important book in helping people see that your attitude does change when you see the Earth from the space perspective - an experience that seems to be an almost universal phenomenon." - Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, founding member of the Overview Institute "It is a dynamic, crystal-clear view that just glows, and that doesn't come across in the pictures and videos. You feel more a part of it when you are looking at it that way. So it is a reaffirmation of what a beautiful and special place the Earth is." - Nicole Stott, NASA astronaut "Space travel needs a new birth, and if we can tap into the desire to go into space, incredible things can come from it." - Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, which includes Virgin Galactic More than 30 years ago, Frank White coined the term "Overview Effect" to describe the cognitive shift in awareness that results from the experience of viewing Earth from orbit or the moon. He found that, with great consistency, this experience profoundly affects space travelers' worldviews - their perceptions of themselves and our planet, and our understanding of the future. White found that astronauts know from direct experience what the rest of us know only intellectually: we live on a planet that is like a natural spaceship moving through the universe at a high rate of speed. We are, in fact, the crew of "Spaceship Earth," as Buckminster Fuller described our world. In The Overview Effect, Third Edition Frank White expands on his original concept, which has now gained worldwide recognition and exposure. Using interviews with and writings by numerous astronauts and cosmonauts, he describes space exploration and settlement as necessary next steps in the evolution of human civilization and consciousness. The third edition features new interviews with the following astronauts, space advocates, and New Space entrepreneurs: Helen P. Sharman * Michael Lopez-Alegria * Sandra H. Magnus * John B. Herrington * Ron Garan * Akihiko Hoshide * Nicole Stott * Sir Richard Branson * George Whitesides * Loretta Hidalgo Whitesides

Biografía del autor:

Frank White (1914-2015) started writing the story of his life as a pioneer BC truck driver in 1974 when he was only sixty. His boisterous yarn in "Raincoast Chronicles 3" about wrangling tiny trucks overloaded with huge logs down steep mountains with no brakes won the Canadian Media Club award for Best Magazine Feature and was reprinted so many times everyone urged him to write more. He started in his spare time but kept having so many new adventures he didn't finish until his hundredth year under heaven (which he didn't believe in). In the end he had written enough for two books--"Milk Spills and One-Log Loads: Memories of a Pioneer Truck Driver" (Harbour, 2013), and a sequel, "That Went By Fast: My First Hundred Years" (Harbour, 2014). The former truck driver, logger, gas station operator, excavationist, waterworks technician and homespun philosopher lived to see 101 years. He shared a home in Garden Bay, BC, with his wife, author Edith Iglauer.
