We are giants, and as such, we do not fully see the world around us. We have never seen the tongue of a snail or a dragonfly flying upside down — until now. At a 2014 TED Talk, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg revealed a snippet of his film, Mysteries of the Unseen World. Using science to understand nature, Schwartzberg used a series of techniques, including time lapses, high-speed cameras, and electron microscopes, to act as the eye we do not possess. Accordingly, the film reveals the astounding majesty of nature, encouraging our imaginations to grow at the possibility of an unlimited future.
