Exhibit Sheds New Light on Human Body

See the human body like never before as the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History presents a special sneak preview of the highly acclaimed Body Worlds 3 and the Story of The Heart exhibition.

Body Worlds 3 has installed the Six Meter Woman in the museum’s Cartwright Hall. It’s on display now through Sept. 1.

The Six Meter Woman, a preview of Body Worlds 3 at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, is a transparent, plastinated body made up of 83 slices representing all of the body’s regions. The torso and the extremities have largely been sliced horizontally; conversely, the head, elbows, hands, knees and feet have been sliced sagittally for a better view.

The body slices, which stem from a single body donor, have been placed at 12-centimeter intervals to permit viewers to look more deeply into the body.

Don’t miss your chance to see the human anatomy in mesmerizing detail and learn more about the structure of the human body.

Admission to see the Six Meter Woman is included with the museum’s general admission. Admission is free for members; for nonmembers, admission is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors, $7 for teens and $6 for children. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., except on Saturday for the Santa Barbara Wine Festival and on Aug. 1 for Fiesta.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
