On Friday, February 5, 1971, Captain Ed Mitchell piloted the Apollo 14 lunar module onto the surface of the Moon in the crater named after the Italian geographer Fra Mauro. It was during this mission that Edgar experienced the profound epiphany of Oneness that led to the enduring concept of the Overview Effect and inspired the founding of the Institute of Noetic Sciences — itself approaching its 50th year!
We all feel the magnitude of change that’s approaching. To paraphrase Sophocles, nothing vast enters the life of humankind without a challenge. Your generous support fuels our leading-edge scientific research and the development and broad dissemination of experiential programs that change lives and prepare us to collectively meet the moment.
In recognition of his important legacy, please consider honoring Edgar today by making a special gift to the Edgar Mitchell Legacy Fund.
