Body Worlds 3, the amazing exhibit featuring real human bodies, opened last night in Salt Lake City with a reception for VIP's. Since I'm blogging about it and linking to The Leonardo's blog, I guess that means I wasn't VIP enough to get an invite. Perhaps some day. Body Worlds is arguably one of the most fascinating, unique, and sometimes controversial, exhibits ever to be shown. An impression from the evening included this:

But a little investigation on the Body Worlds website yielded this image: But don't get lulled into waiting cause it could and likely will sell out.  It wouldn't be the first time.
