Most astronauts, when they saw the Earth from space, were astounded by its beauty and fell in love with her. This transformation is called the Overview Effect and forever changed their lives. Through emotions, astronauts from all countries deeply understood planetary boundaries and the interconnectedness of all living things. At a moment where our individual and collective behaviors are threatening the Earth, the rise of this planetary consciousness is more important than ever.
Since April 2020, the OneHome NGO offers the possibility for everybody to experience the Overview Effect and feel home on this planet.
French-Israeli singer-songwriter Yael Naim, convinced by the importance of loving our planet, was inspired by the OneHome initiative and images. She composed this soundtrack “Heaven” that magnifies the emotions of seeing the Earth from space and amplifies the Overview Effect.
