IMAX 3D: Mysteries of the Unseen World

Discover things too slow, too fast, or too small to see.

Mysteries of the Unseen World reveals phenomena that can’t be seen with the naked eye. High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology uncovers a universe of creatures, processes and events you never even knew existed—from the flight of a dragonfly to the bacteria living on our bodies and the invisible rays of light that surround us.

Students will learn that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is to see on Earth. The wonder and possibilities of science will come to life as you explore hidden worlds that exist in the air we breathe, on our bodies, and in the world around us.
