Overview Effect

First experienced by the crew members of Apollo 8, and popularised through the iconic front cover of the Whole Earth catalogue, the ‘Overview Effect’ is a psychological shift in perspective triggered by seeing our planet in its entirety, in all of its uniqueness and fragility.

Overview acts as a democratic alternative to elite space tourism, offering members of the public the transformative experience of seeing our home planet from afar without leaving the ground. By launching a high altitude balloon up to the edge of space, independent footage was gathered and turned into an immersive experience, allowing everybody to share this inspiring and humbling journey.
