SpaceVR was born out of the CEO & Founder Ryan Holmes’ frustration with the world. The constant short term gains we make for long term loses. The prioritization of trillions of dollars to destroy other countries when our own children are undereducated and undernourished. Frustrated by our destructive separatist view of the world especially when it is so blatantly obvious that our very survival, more than our survival, our thriving as a civilization depends on the collaborative efforts of those we are trying to kill.
Ryan sought out to do something. Something that could affect the lattice of the crystal of humanity. Something that if changed could domino out and change everything else.
He came across a beautiful documentary, Overview, detailing astronauts accounts of a profoundly transformative experience called The Overview Effect.
The Overview Effect is so profound that it repeatedly makes astronauts cry. Some describe it as seeing and feeling the love of God.
Anousheh Ansari, an Iranian-American engineer and space tourist recalled ”The actual experience exceeds all expectations and is something that’s hard to put to words.”
Defined specifically by SpaceVR advisor and author of the book “The Overview Effect”, Frank White, as a cognitive shift in awareness linked to the experience of seeing firsthand the reality that the Earth is in space.
After finding The Overview Effect, Ryan set out to make it real and founded Space Virtual Reality Corporation in January 2015 to bring the Overview Effect to world using the best virtual reality and satellite technology in the world.
