A geophysics professor uses his revolutionary new microscope to make a startling discovery: certain crystals act as photographic film. Examining prehistoric rocks, he's able to see images of dinosaurs; glass formed by an atomic test show him the mushroom cloud. Written by

The International Society of Science in Geneva, Switzerland wanted to make Dr. Hewitt the third American ever to receive its annual prize. The real world annual Nobel Prizes are awarded in Stockholm by various Swedish agencies. By 1956 about 40 USA citizens had received Nobel Prizes in the sciences. See more »
This is a visual representation of the episode where sound is captured in rock. Once again a scientist is placed in a loony bin because he is having delusions. He has been observing a pictorial record of places where rocks have actually produced visions, captured in a previous time: pyramids, dinosaurs, atomic bombs, etc. Unfortunately, when anyone else looks through the microscope, they see nothing, only the rock or crystal. He has been chosen as the person receiving the top prize to be awarded in Geneva, Switzerland. Of course, being a nut, they are going to take away his chance since he is a representative of American science. There are several embarrassing moments along the way and he drops into a deep depression. A pretty good episode all around.
