About Frank White
Frank White has authored or co-authored numerous books on topics ranging from space exploration to climate change to artificial intelligence. His best-known work, "The Overview Effect: Space Exploration and Human Evolution," is considered by many to be a seminal work in the field of space exploration. A film called "Overview," based largely on his work, has had some 8 million plays on Vimeo.

Since the first edition of his book on the subject was published in 1987, "the Overview Effect" has become a standard term for describing the spaceflight experience. The fourth edition of "The Overview Effect," including original interviews with 31 astronauts, was published in in 2021.

White considers himself to be a "space philosopher," and has long advocated developing a new philosophy of space exploration. His book on this topic, "The Cosma Hypothesis: Implications of the Overview Effect," was published in 2019. In it, he asks the fundamental question, "What is the purpose of human space exploration? Why has the evolutionary process brought humanity to the brink of becoming a spacefaring species?"

In the book, he shares the idea of "the Human Space Program" as a "central project" that will engage all of us in the process of becoming "Citizens of the Universe."

Frank lives in a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts.
