“With an innovative use of high-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy and nanotechnology, the film allows us to see exciting new images of long-hidden worlds,” explains the museum’s Amanda Bennett. Those hidden worlds can be found on our own bodies, whole ecosystems unto themselves. By employing technology once reserved for the lab work of scientists, National Geographic gives watchers an up-close and personal look at things that literally exist on the tips of our noses.
Mysteries of the Unseen World opens today at the IMAX theater at the DMNS, 2001 Colorado Boulevard, and continues through January 23. For tickets, $6 to $10, and showtime information, go to dmns.org or call 303-322-7009.
