The overview effect is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of care for the planet, an understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for it.
Thus far, this unifying overview effect has been experienced by only a handful of space explorers, some 500 to date. Could we simulate that experience without getting on the spaceship?
During Temporary's overview effect experiment, we will watch overnight 10 hours long projection of video compilation (accompanied by space sounds) showing the Earth from a space perspective.
All participants should bring a sleeping bag, mat, pillow, and anything to be comfortable during half-watching and half-sleeping experience of the Temporary Overview Effect.
The experiment will start on 17 March 23.00 and end on 18 March 9.00 when we will eat a common breakfast to smoothly incorporate overview effect in porridge eating.
This experiment is not active.
There has been no activity towards this experiment during the past over 4 years. The experiment is assumed to be completed or abandoned.
