In conjunction with its current exhibit "Body Worlds: Pulse," the California Science Center screens the film The Human Body, which shows the inner workings of the human body, from conception and birth to puberty and adulthood, all blown up in IMAX format. Based on a BBC documentary series, the movie uses scanning electron microscopes, thermal imaging, medical computer graphics and other technologies to follow the routine bodily functions of one family — 8-year-old Zannah, teenage Luke, Uncle Buster and pregnant Aunt Heather — for a single day. You get to see how fast hair grows, how a tomato travels through the stomach, how the ear makes sense of sound and how a fetus develops.
