An incredible voyage into the microworld of the human body.
NOVA takes viewers on an incredible voyage into the microworld of the human body to explore The Universe Within. Breathtaking sports photography captures amazing athletes in action - but the real action happens inside, revealed by microphotography that is in the style of NOVA's classic documentary of human development, The Miracle of Life.br>
The program covers three incredible team efforts: the coordination of muscles, bones, heart and circulatory system that makes Mike Powell the world's greatest long jumper; the digestive dynamo that turns a simple sandwich eaten by five-time Olympic gold medalist Bonnie Blair into raw energy for a blistering sprint down the ice; and the ultimate event - the development of a new human life inside track star Karen Hatchett.
