Interesting to think that in the future when space flight has become the norm that history will look back on this little capsule as the moment space opened up to the rest of the world instead of a select few governments

On the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.

The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, 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 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.

‘Overview’ is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.

crazy to think that we've actually built a proper commercial space port and that 20years from now there could possibly be one in every major country

The Mercury-bound MESSENGER spacecraft captured several stunning images of Earth during a gravity assist swingby of its home planet on Aug. 2, 2005. Several hundred images, taken with the wide-angle camera in MESSENGER's Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS), were sequenced into a movie documenting the view from MESSENGER as it departed Earth.

Comprising 358 frames taken over 24 hours, the movie follows Earth through one complete rotation. The spacecraft was 40,761 miles (65,598 kilometers) above South America when the camera started rolling on Aug. 2. It was 270,847 miles (435,885 kilometers) away from Earth - farther than the Moon's orbit - when it snapped the last image on Aug. 3.

The WOW signal.. www.realclearscience.c... never knew about this

That's interesting RJ. I'd still lean toward a more rational explanation but that's very compelling.

The fact that it hasn't happened again removes any extra terrestrial source, for me.

It was more than likely the outburst from some yet to be discovered celestial event, but it would be pretty fucking amazing to be around for when we do pick up something undisputable in its origin and to see what implications it would have on this planet

0 |

This one is baffling when you think of the broader implications

Considering many people on this planet believe a man rose from the dead and/or planes spray poison on everyone, I wouldn't put money on it making much of an impact for a generation or two.

You can bring these forces into your life, though I wouldn't reccommend it. Each of us holds a door way, the problem is once opened, you don't have control over what steps in and influences - good or bad. As a mortal born in sin you don't have the power to deny of your own accord.

True in the subject of cool space shit id highly recommend Europa Report, solid wee flick detailing an expedition to Europa that doesn't involve warp drives or other such star trekkie nonsense

All about vibration, RJ. Even the mainstream 'tists are coming round to the fact that it's literally all vibe$. Sound, light, matter, thought - all vibration

Not nesessarily RJ... there could be many reasons why signals from another part of the galaxy could be cut off... The aliens destroyed themselves, another star light years away has moved in the way of the signal, the planet has gone round the far side of its star.......

I often wonder how the frequency filter ties in with us having so much shut down, 'junk' DNA. And why we can only use a slither of our cognitive potential

0 |

Can only use a slither of our cognitive potential? What's this based on? Hopefully not that nonsense about only using blah blah percent of our brain?

0 |

Based upon the proportion of 'junk' DNA, as was stated from the get-go

0 |

That's the problem takk, an intelligent civilization wouldn't send just 1 signal it would send many repeating in a sequence so we should've at least got some sort of repeating signal before another race intercepted it

0 |

Or maybe they would send one pure signal and interpret the disturbances, and test it from there

this is very interesting if proven to be true www.gizmodo.co.uk/2013...

NASA apparently remains very quiet in regards these sorts of findings and some say that it is because they have known about it for a long time, but have kept it quiet while they try and understand what it might mean to humanity if proof alien life existed, and that we are more than likely 'alien' ourselves.

class. MIB is more than likely all a true story then..

Any links to those articles takk about NASA knowing about this

This information being released now, in light of comet ISON's approach in December makes me wonder...

LOL @ RJ asking for articles, showing that NASA already knew but weren't letting on. Think about it, that would defeat the entire purpose

try searching for 'nasa denies alien bacteria' or something along those lines. It's a well known theory that life could well have come to earth via other celestial bodies, and there have been plenty of missions to space by NASA. I could understand if they had proof, but weren't sure how to unveil it. It would be the most important finding in human history ever and would no doubt change a lot about how people think about their place in existence. Dears knows what effect it might have on society, nothing like this has ever happened before. How would religion deal with it, for example? + we all know how bonkers the religious nuts can be.

takki - how would you say that ties in with evolution, in the Darwinian sense?

0 |

Well I don't think it would discredit Darwin in any way. Evolution would still have taken place in the same way. It would probably just put an end to the scientists who are trying to work out how life came from the primordial soup, but everything after that is the same really.
