National Geographic’s Mysteries of the Unseen World 3D film


What You Can’t See Is All Around You. Mysteries of the Unseen World will transport audiences to places on the planet they've never been before, to see things that are beyond their normal vision yet are literally right in front of their eyes. Existing and emerging technologies are giving science exciting new images of long-hidden worlds—allowing viewers to see things not visible to the naked eye. Using high-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology, one can peer into these invisible realms of things too fast, too slow, and too small to see. A collection of selected videos, activities, microscopic images, articles, and other resources accompany the film. You are invited to use these resources to help students describe the relationship between light and visibility, examine the properties of objects at the nanoscale, explore advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology, and journey into the unseen world around us.
