<p>"Everyone at TELUS World of Science - <span class="xn-location">Calgary</span> is proud that so many Calgarians have visited BODY WORLDS in such a short period of time. The high volume of visitors speaks to the amazing opportunity that this exhibition offers and we anticipate the numbers will continue to grow in the coming weeks. We encourage those who haven't visited to purchase their tickets today," says <span class="xn-person">Jennifer Martin</span>, president and CEO of TELUS World of Science.</p>
<p>BODY WORLDS has attracted over 30 million visitors worldwide and this popularity has spread to <span class="xn-location">Calgary</span> where, to accommodate more attendees, TELUS World of Science has extended evening hours so visitors can see the exhibit late into the evening from Thursday to Sunday.</p>
<p>"I'm so glad that Calgarians have embraced BODY WORLDS in the spirit that Gunther von Hagens and I offer it, as a dramatic, memorable, beautiful exhibition that offers people unforgettable lessons about anatomy, disease, and health," explains <span class="xn-person">Dr. Angelina Whalley</span>, physician and creative conceptual designer who has planned exhibitions that have toured the globe.</p>
<p>BODY WORLDS is the original and acclaimed exhibition of real human bodies that have been preserved through plastination, a revolutionary process invented by Dr. von Hagens.  The exhibition displays the anatomy, physiology and effects of lifestyle choices on the human body through the scientific and enlightening display of more than 200 specimens including whole bodies, individual organs and transparent body slices. The organs and whole-body plastinates in the exhibition derive from people who, in their lifetime, generously donated their bodies for Plastination, to specifically educate future generations about health.</p>
