Program Description

NOVA takes viewers into the incredible microworld of the human body to explore some amazing physiological systems. From two points of view -- spectacular photography of human bodies in motion and stunning inside-the- body microphotography -- the program covers the coordination of muscles, bones, heart and circulatory system that makes Mike Powell the world's greatest long jumper; the immune system of ice climber Rob Taylor as his white blood cells combat a dangerous gangrene infection; the digestive dynamo that turns a simple sandwich eaten by five-time Olympic gold medalist Bonnie Blair into raw energy; and the ultimate event -- the development of a new human life inside track star Karen Hatchett Pavlin.
