THE “OVERVIEW EFFECT” HAS BEEN REPORTED BY SOME ASTRONAUTS DURING SPACEFLIGHTS AND E.V.A. SPACEWALKS AS BOTH EXCITING AND DISORIENTING. THIS CAN BE OVERWHELMING TO THE SENSES AND MIGHT IMPEDE YOUR ABILITY TO WORK. just like with motion on a boat, or reading in a car, PERIPHERAL movement while focusing on a task can cause disorientation.
we utilize augmented reality goggles to PRACTICE FLOATING OVER THE EARTH WHILE working on repair scenarios and emergency drills. The loop shows the earth through 24 hours of light and dark, with sunrises, sunsets, and the lights from cities below you.
While you are floating over the earth, LISTEN TO ASTRONAUTS DISCUSS THEIR OWN FIRST TIME EXPERIENCES SEEING THE EARTH FROM SPACE. hear how it affected their view of the planet.
