Frank White

Frank White is a writer who has spent much of his career thinking about the implications of space exploration for human evolution. He has authored a total of 10 books, including: The Overview Effect, The SETI Factor, The New Camelot, March of the Millennia and Think About Space (with Isaac Asimov), The Ice Chronicles (with Paul Mayewski), and Decision: Earth, a novel. Frank’s latest book, The New Camelot, offers a new interpretation of the Apollo program, comparing the Apollo astronauts to King Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table, and suggesting that the Overview Effect is the “holy grail” of our time. Recent developments in both governmental and non-governmental space exploration efforts appear to vindicate many of the ideas that were initially explicated in The Overview Effect. Frank is now working on a revision of that work, focusing on trends that have begun to appear since the first edition came out in 1987. He is a cofounder of the Overview Institute, established in part to carry forward the work that began with publication of his book, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year.

Frank White, author of The Overview Effect is the guest on this edition of The Space Show. The Overview Effect is a very powerful and compelling book, detailing among many things, the transformative effect that space has had on those that have been fortunate enough to visit it. Frequent listeners to The Space Show have heard me reference this book many times as it is one of my absolute favorite of all space books. The Overview Effect first came out about 16 years ago and in it, Frank White essentially predicted globalization which he called "Terra." Mr.
