Lowe and Bridges died and their bodies were not recovered, but Anker survived. The widow of Lowe said in a statement Friday, April 29, 2016, that the remains of two people partially melting out of a glacier were recently discovered. Based on a description of clothing found on the remains, Anker said the clothing matches what Lowe and Bridges were wearing at the time of the avalanche. (Chris Noble/noblefoto.com via AP)

'National Parks Adventure 3D,' one of the movies now playing at the Tennessee Aquarium's Imax Theater, has a connection to explorer Alex Lowe, whose body was discovered on a Tibet mountain.

He and cameraman David Bridges were buried in a Himalayan avalanche 16 years ago. Last week, two climbers attempting to ascend the 26,291-foot Shishapangma discovered the remains of the two men partially melting out of a glacier.

"National Parks Adventure" features Lowe's son Max and his former climbing partner, Conrad Anker, who married Lowe's widow and adopted his sons.

Max Lowe visited Chattanooga on March 22 for a special presentation at the Imax.
