The short documentary "OVERVIEW" by Planetary Collective marks the 40th anniversary of the famous Blue Marble photograph taken by the crew of Apollo 17 on December 7, 1972.
The above image is easily one of the most famous images ever. It was taken around 29,000km from the Earth's surface as Apollo 17 travelled towards the moon and captures the Antarctic in the south and the Mediterranean Sea. The original photograph was orientated upside-down which was the way the astronauts were positioned but was flipped for publication. To this day The Blue Marble or the more catchy NASA official name AS17-148-22727 is one of the most widely distributed images ever.
The centrepiece of "OVERVIEW" is about five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The overview effect is a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts and cosmonauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from orbit or from the lunar surface.
