Mystery Of The Nile-Giant-screen Film Opens At The Museum Of Science

For centuries, navigating the Nile from beginning to end has remained one of the last great-unfinished journeys of exploration. On April 28, 2004, renowned adventurer and geophysicist Pasquale Scaturro, together with filmmaker Gordon Brown, made history when they completed the first full descent of the Nile. In "Mystery of the Nile" showing on the giant screen of the Mugar Omni Theater, audiences witness the expedition team's journey over 114 days, more than 3,000 miles by kayak and raft, facing nearly every imaginable danger, from deadly rapids and violent bandits to blinding sandstorms and tropical diseases.

On Christmas day of 2003, Pasquale Scaturro and a team of explorers set out on an epic quest to become the first to complete a full descent of the world's greatest river, the Blue Nile and the Nile, from source to sea. Four months later, on April 28 at 7:01am, Pasquale and his expedition partner Gordon Brown, reached the mouth of the Nile at the Mediterranean Sea, becoming the first in history to complete this 3,250-mile journey.

Their amazing journey is the basis for the IMAX® film, MYSTERY OF THE NILE. MYSTERY OF THE NILE tells the story of this emotional and historic expedition while also exploring the cultural and environmental links between the Ethiopian, Sudanese and Egyptian civilizations. Both a captivating human adventure and a serious in-depth look at this most fascinating yet little-known region, MYSTERY OF THE NILE promises another exciting and educational giant screen experience.

But I, sweet Soul, rejoice that I was born,
When from the climbing terraces of corn
I watch the golden orioles of Thy morn.
