Mysteries of the Unseen World

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.  Mysteries of the Unseen World 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. Narrated by Forest Whitaker, Mysteries of the Unseen World is an original production by National Geographic Entertainment and Day’s End Pictures.

Mysteries of the Unseen World allows viewers to see things not visible to the naked eye, thanks to the film's innovative use of high-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology. 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.
