Last time you heard from me, I informed you of the sci-fi burial methods of cryonics and flying your ashes through space. Now, for a more “as seen in movies” feel…I present you with the method of Plastination!
Plastination is a process in which the body is preserved in a recognizable form, typically used for medical schools and labs for educational purposes. The process is very similar to that of mummification and was invented by anatomist Gunther von Hagens. Dr. Gunther von Hagens founded the Institute for Plastination in 1993 out of Heidelberg. If you have seen the exhibit of “Body Worlds” then you have seen Plastination first hand. Because the process might make some of you cringe, I will provide the link so you can find out how the final “product” is achieved.
Bodies can be donated for this cause. As of March 2015, there have been more than 15,000 donors, which include both the living and deceased.
