Grammy Award-winning recording artist Chaka Khan and a group of middle school students from Compton, who are sponsored by her foundation, were at the exhibit when the turnstile ticked 1 million. California Science Center president and CEO Jeffrey Rudolph awarded the lucky visitor, Jovann Delgado, 12, of Charles Drew Middle School with a package of science-themed prizes.

BODY WORLDS made its North American debut at the California Science Center with the opening of BODY WORLDS 1 in July 2004. Public response to the exhibit was overwhelmingly positive, and the Science Center opened BODY WORLDS 2 in January 2005, immediately following the first installment. BODY WORLDS 3 & The Story of the Heart, presented by Herbalife, opened on March 14 to record-breaking advance ticket sales. BODY WORLDS continues its run as the most popular visiting exhibit at the California Science Center.

Chaka Khan and the group of students from Charles Drew Middle School were treated to a private showing of BODY WORLDS 3, a presentation on the heart from the California Science Center's education staff and an exclusive tour of the Air and Space gallery with its curator, Dr. Ken Phillips. The field trip was part of the Chaka Khan Foundation's college preparatory program and highlights the California Science Center and BODY WORLDS' mission to inspire the public to learn about science and health.

Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS 3 & The Story of the Heart is a 20,000 square-foot exhibition featuring more than 200 authentic human specimens including whole body plastinates, organs, translucent body slices, and a special presentation on the heart. Through the life-like and dramatic poses of full-body specimens and detailed presentation of organs and body parts, visitors gain profound insights into the structure and function of healthy and unhealthy bodies. At the California Science Center through Sept. 7, 2008. Admission ranges from $11.50 to $18.95. More: http://www.californiasciencecenter.org.
