    Quanto á questão de uns serem “losers” e os outros “winners” levantada pelo cartoon, e que é muito irónica sobre um outro tipo possível de “overview effect” (digamos…) e que também pode surgir como efeito secundário dos voos espaciais, podemos sempre ver esse tema “explorado” no argumento deste filme:

    Sugiro uma boa vista de olhos a este link:

    Overview effect – From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    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.[1][2][3][4][5]

    It refers to the experience of seeing firsthand the reality of the Earth in space, which is immediately understood to be a tiny, fragile ball of life, “hanging in the void”, shielded and nourished by a paper-thin atmosphere. From space, national boundaries vanish, the conflicts that divide people become less important, and the need to create a planetary society with the united will to protect this “pale blue dot” becomes both obvious and imperative.[5]

    Third-hand observers of these individuals may also report a noticeable difference in attitude.[5] Astronauts Rusty Schweikart,[5] Edgar Mitchell,[5] Tom Jones,[5] Chris Hadfield[6] and Mike Massimino[7] are all reported to have experienced the effect.

    The term and concept were coined in 1987 by Frank White, who explored the theme in his book The Overview Effect — Space Exploration and Human Evolution (Houghton-Mifflin, 1987), (AIAA, 1998).[6] The overview effect has been considered to be one to the stimuli that led to the Gaia hypothesis.[citation needed]

    An article claims the environmental protection movement was inspired by NASA’s Earthrise (and another) photograph.[8]
