How cosmonauts change while being in space - The Overview Effect

Looking at the earth from space changed the life of any cosmonaut who travelled a spacecraft or the ISS. 

Although the goal of space research was reaching the stars, the cosmonauts experienced the so called Overview Effect, a breathtaking, cognitive shift caused by simply looking back at the earth. 

Overview is an outstanding documentary that will hold your breath for the next 19 minutes.

 "Suddenly you recognize that we´re in space already. 
It´s just that we have not brought that into our perspective as we live here on earth. 
The Overview effect is simply the sudden recognition that we live on a planet. 
That we live on spaceship Earth."
