Product Description

The luminous vision of Earth from space reveals one human family. Boundaries and differences that seem insurmountable at ground level are diminished, illuminating the understanding that all people have the same desires for love, safety, happiness, and acceptance. The "overview effect," first described in 1987 by science writer Frank White, is the cognitive shift experienced by astronauts while in space. With sudden clarity, they understand that the Earth — home to everyone and everything we have ever known — is a pulsing, swirling, living place that we must protect.

  • 12" x 12" wall calendar (12" x 24" open).
  • Features stunning images from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) photographic archives paired with powerful quotes from philosophers, writers, and astronauts such as William Anders, Edgar Mitchell, Ulf Merbold, Alfred Worden, and Rusty Schweickart.
  • High-quality printing on premium paper stock.
  • Printed on paper sourced from a combination of sustainably managed forests and recycled materials.
  • Features US and Canadian legal holidays, phases of the moon, and important observances of the world's major religions.
  • We Plant Trees — Amber Lotus Publishing, an independent carbon-negative US company, has planted more than three quarters of a million trees since 2008.

A single tree reduces carbon in the atmosphere for as long as it grows. So we plant a lot of trees: 875,000 and counting.
