Science World at Telus World of Science is hosting Body Worlds 3 in Vancouver starting September 15, 2006. Body Worlds 3 runs through January 14, 2007 and features nearly 200 real human bodies, posed in a variety of positions, that have undergone a process called “plastination” to preserve them. The show also features healthy and diseased organs side by side for a visual comparison.
“The human body is the last remaining nature in a man made environment,” he says. “I hope for the exhibitions to be places of enlightenment and contemplation, even of philosophical and religious self recognition, and open to interpretation regardless of the background and philosophy of life of the viewer.” – Gunther von Hagen

Body Worlds Highly Recommended
I’ve seen this controversial exhibition on TV and thought, “Wow, I wish that would come to Vancouver.” Talking with some guys on my hockey team the other night, I found out they’d seen the show in Ontario. They highly recommended Body Worlds; a must see for anyone who wants to learn more about how our bodies work.
I can’t wait to see the Vancouver Body Worlds exhibit. Have you seen the show before? Where? What did you think?
