  Mysteries of the Unseen World

                                           Dome Film
                                              Duration: 40´

 

The film will transport audiences to see things that are beyond their normal vision, yet literally right in front of their eyes, secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale. Viewers will experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; They will "see" the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena of that occur in the flash of a microsecond; They will enter the microscopic world that was once reserved only for scientists. They will begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is TO see on this Earth.
Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, National Geographic’s “Mysteries of the Unseen World” will leave audiences in complete thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can't see, a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their own bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute-by-minute, and nanosecond-by-nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.

From the great observatories in the Chilean desert of Atacama to the Hubble space telescope, and from the exploration of the Solar system to our communication satellites, this show highlights the importance of light in astronomy research, as well as how Space exploration and scientific research in general benefit society at large.
