When we look at the world from the moon, as astronaut Edgar Mitchell explained, it is just a small, round ball. As Apollo 14 moved closer and the earth became larger, Mitchell's life changed forever. From exploring the far reaches of outer space, he began to seek a deeper meaning for his experience and turned to explore his inner world, which came to include meditation. He co-created the Institute of Noetic Sciences to encourage and lead research into human potential.
