Will Space Travel Cure us of Political Perspective?

Private research and funding has led to privatized spacecrafts becoming a thing – and possibly bringing the idea of commercial space travel just a teensy bit closer to reality. But what are the implications of actually sending people into space? Mike Rugnetta at the PBS Idea Channel seems to think that once space travel becomes a common thing, we might be facing a transcendence of our political perspective on the world.

What do you think? Will seeing our planet as nothing more than a big sphere on a sea of stars completely change our perspective of the world, or would this sort of reaction become diluted with the commercialization of space travel?
