Though Space Center Houston theaters are temporarily closed, we are still passionate about sharing science and space exploration with our community. That’s why we hosted our August Thought Leader Series virtually.
Traveling to space is a singular event in any person’s life. But seeing our “big blue marble” from orbit can change perspectives.
In our August Thought Leader Series, presented by The University of Texas Medical Branch, astronaut Don Pettit, author Frank White and NASA psychologist Tom Williams discuss the overview effect, which describes the psychological effects astronauts experience when viewing the Earth from space and how it can influence a greater change in humankind.
