A brand new IMAX movie is opening at the National Museum of Natural History this Friday, September 26, and after catching a sneak preview of it last week, and I vouch that it’s quite a fascinating film. Even better, I have four tickets to see it ready to give away to one lucky winner.
Mysteries of the Unseen World is an extraordinary visual journey into dimensions not perceptible to the naked eye. Through the film’s innovative use of high-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology, viewers finally get a close-up look at some of the most minute particles of our universe and existence. Here’s more about the film from National Geographic:
Scientists are on the threshold of extraordinary advances born of our drive to see all that is hidden in the world around us. Each day, trail-blazing researchers are pushing the envelope with new technologies to peer with increasing clarity into these once-invisible dimensions. A new 3D/2D giant screen film takes audiences on an extraordinary journey into these unseen worlds beyond our normal vision to uncover the mysteries of things that are too fast, too slow, too small or simply invisible.
Audiences peer into unseen dimensions once reserved only for scientists to see a whole new universe of wondrous nature, daily events that escape the naked eye, and secrets crucial to our survival. The discoveries portrayed in the film are culled from those happening today in laboratories around the world, where existing and emerging technologies are yielding exciting new images of long-hidden worlds.
Mysteries of the Unseen World will be playing at the National Museum of Natural History’s Johnson IMAX Threatre through March 10, 2015. Showtimes vary, and tickets are $9.
