“I went to space and discovered a big lie”

When astronauts travel to space for the first time and see our planet for the first time, they often experience a strange phenomenon: they become aware of how interconnected and fragile life on Earth is, and they feel a sudden responsibility to protect it.

Astronaut Ron Garan experienced this so-called “overview effect” when he first saw Earth from space. When he looked out over the planet, he saw an iridescent biosphere teeming with life, all shielded by an incredibly thin atmosphere.

What he didn’t see was something that society frequently prioritizes: the economy. Garan believes that seeing Earth from space revealed that issues such as global warming, deforestation, and biodiversity loss are not unrelated. They are symptoms of a deeper flaw in our perception of ourselves as humans: we fail to recognize that we are a planetary species.
