Since 2014, Benjamin Grant searches for striking satellite pictures of our planet and publish them on his website - The Daily Overview. His aim is to change the way we see our planet Earth, and to show the effects of human intervention that can be found in nature - desserts, mining fields, islands and etc. Do you remember his previous post on Bored Panda?

Grant was inspired by the Overview Effect experience, which is a cognitive shift of perspective and worldview experienced by the astronauts when they see the planet Earth from space for the first time. In that breathtaking moment, astronauts realize how small and fragile the human life is.

So scroll down the page and experience the Overview Effect yourself!
