Maryland Science Center Unveils Anatomical Exhibition, Body Worlds 2, on Saturday, February 2
Date:2/1/2008

BALTIMORE, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS 2: The Original Exhibition of Real Human Bodies will open at the Maryland Science Center this Saturday, February 2nd. The acclaimed exhibition includes the East Coast debut of The Three Pound Gem, a special feature on the brain.

BODY WORLDS presents more than 200 anatomical specimens, including whole bodies, healthy and unhealthy organs, body section and slices, all preserved through a remarkable process called Plastination. The Three Pound Gem was inspired by findings in neuroscience on brain development and function, brain disease and disorders, and brain performance and improvement.

At the Maryland Science Center, more than 20 whole bodies presented in unique and surprising poses and dozens of individual organs will offer visitors an in-depth view of the human body, focusing on wellness and disease. The exhibition displays the anatomy, physiology, and effects of lifestyle choices on the human body. BODY WORLDS 2 is the largest exhibition ever on display at the Maryland Science Center, occupying more than 15,000 square feet of exhibition space.

Plastination - the groundbreaking method for extracting bodily fluids and fat from specimens and replacing them, through vacuum forced impregnation, with reactive resins and polymers - was invented by Dr. Gunther von Hagens, physician, anatomist and creator of the exhibitions that bear his name.

The specimens in the exhibition stem primarily from a body donation program managed by the Institute for Plastination in Heidelberg, Germany. To date, the roster includes more than 8650 registered donors, 655 of them Americans, who have agreed to donate their bodies for the express purpose of serving BODY WORLDS mission to educate the public about health and anatomy.

More than 18,000 advance tickets have been sold for the exhibition at the Maryland Science Center. Tickets are available on the Maryland Science Center's website,
