The Visible Human Project

Joseph Paul Jernigan was executed in Texas in 1993 for a brutal murder he had committed. Before his execution, he donated his body to the State Anatomical Board of Texas. His body was selected for the Visible Human Project, designed to create accurate computerized versions of the human body. After being frozen, his body was sectioned at 1-mmm intervals.
