Hemophobes, beware! The magic of Gunther von Hagens Body Worlds returns to the Arizona Science Center.
The controversial exhibit returns for its second time as Body Worlds & The Brain.

Despite some ethical objections to the displaying of human remains, proponents of the exhibit are dead serious about the educational benefits to be had by visitors of all ages.
