Mysteries of the Unseen World
October 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Take an extraordinary journey into unseen worlds and hidden dimensions beyond our normal vision to uncover the mysteries of things too fast, too slow, too small or simply invisible. What it would be like if we had X-ray vision, or infrared vision like a mosquito, how a bee’s eyes see through ultraviolet light? Peer into the world of wonders too small for the human eye to see – from the minute structures on a butterfly’s wing and the tiny organisms that inhabit the human body all the way down to nano-scale structures. See how electron microscopes create images that magnify things by as much as a million times–revealing a world that is both bizarre and beautiful. The film, narrated by Forest Whitaker, uses innovative high-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology, to transport audiences to an enthralling secret world of nature, events, and breathtaking phenomena not visible to the naked eye. Explore the unseen world all around us!
