In 1977 scientist Gunther von Hagens invented Plastination, a method of stopping body decomposition. Good ol’ Gunther mostly meant this to be used for medical education, but let’s reap the benefits, shall we? Visit COSI to inspect more than 200 skinless human bodies in action, individual organs and transparent body slices all preserved through Plastination in this renowned traveling exhibit.
