Many astronauts when they first see the Earth from space are astounded by its beauty, falling in love with her and forever changing their lives. It is called The Overview Effect. Since April 2020, the OneHome NGO has been using unique Earth images taken from one million miles away by NASA to create a spectacture view such that everybody can have the same profound experience.
John Allen, author and inventor of Biosphere 2, shares his love and vision for the biosphere on OneHome.org, with an original musical score composed by Mark Yaeger for John’s reading, quite moving.
“I have always been inspired by the view of the Earth from space, our spaceship Earth, to imagine Biosphere 2 and all our other projects. Inhabiting this planet as we all were astronauts taking care of our common life-support system could change the future.” John Allen
To learn more about John Allen’s work, his autobiography, Me and the Biospheres tells the story in which he conceived the vision of Biosphere 2 and the journey through which it came to fruition. Anyone concerned with the current world trajectory will identify with Allen’s uplifting account of the most ambitious environmental experiment ever undertaken.
