It's pretty much a given that most of us spend too many hours glued to screens and electronic media and insufficient time outdoors. But for all the myriad miraculous things waiting to be observed and studied out there in the natural world, there are just as many that are invisible to us, no matter how receptive our senses might be. But this time you can thank technology for opening up entire new realities. National Geographic Entertainment's Mysteries of the Unseen World
incorporates cutting-edge cameras and technology to reveal all this wonder — like creatures that move too fast or too slow for the naked eye to register, or the billions of invisible organisms living on each one of us. Mysteries of the Unseen World
plays daily in the OMNIMAX Theater at the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4424 or www.slsc.org
) through Friday, June 5. Tickets are $8 to $9.
Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m., 12 & 3 p.m.; Sundays, 12 & 3 p.m.; Dec. 26-June 5, 1 p.m. Starts: Oct. 10. Continues through Dec. 24, 2014
