Event Name:  The Overview Effect – Space and Our Connected Humanity
Event Description:  Throughout history, humanity has looked at the sky with a combined sense of awe and fear that has shaped its existence and evolution. Our relationship with the Universe, as individuals and as a society at large, provides the context to explore our anguish with respect to the fragile finitude of life. The fascinating evolution of Human Space Flight has given humans the opportunity to turn that angle around, look back at planet Earth, their only home amongst the stars, and realize its uniqueness and humbling minusculeness. This has also marked the beginning of a “cognitive shift in awareness” regarding humankind’s purpose in the vast canvas of the Universe. Experienced by only astronauts early on, this “overview effect” has been amplified recently through the incredible imagery collected via Earth Observation activities as well as the new opportunities under accelerated development that enable any individual to ultimately experience space flight. How is space exploration bringing us closer to understanding each other and our relationship with our home planet? How can space unravel to our unstable and polarising conditions on earth? How can we leverage the interest in space for the benefit of humanity?
