7. The Overview effect

On February 7th 1971, astronaut Ed Mitchell was rocketing through space between the Earth and the Moon when something 
very odd happened... A feeling of bliss, timelessness, and connectedness began to overwhelm him. He instantly and 
profoundly felt the understanding of his constituent atoms as having been born in the fires of ancient supernovas. Well 
over 30 astronauts and cosmonauts have described a strange, nirvana-like phenomenon that can occur suddenly during space 
travel, which is collectively referred to as the “Overview Effect”, which has broadened their own understanding of our 
connection to space. [1]
