Another oddity museum for all the bizarre lovers!

The Musée Fragonard d’Alfort is a museum of anatomical oddities.

It opened to the public in 1991, and today consists of three rooms containing a large collection of anatomical oddities and dissections, most of which date from the 19th and early 20th centuries.

In addition to animal skeleton and dissections such as a piglet displayed in cross-section, the museum contains a substantial collection of monstrosities Siamese twin lambs, a two-headed calf, a 10-legged sheep, and a colt with one huge eye.

The museum’s most astonishing items are the famous “écorchés” (flayed figures) prepared by Honoré Fragonard.

His speciality was the preparation and preservation of skinned cadavers, of which he prepared some 700 examples. Only 21 remain; all are on display in the museum’s final room

Scientists have identified 180 species of bioluminescent fish and, because they know there are more and can’t swim to the bottom of the ocean to find them, they have built the EXOSUIT, an aluminium alloy diving suit capable of taking a human 304 metres underwater at surface pressure. The EXOSUIT has an oxygen system with 50 hours of life support and LED lights for full visibility. Read more: http://bit.ly/1eABe20 via Gizmodo

Known as ‘frozen smoke’, aerogel is made by extracting the liquid component of alumina, chromia, tin oxide, or carbon gels through supercritical drying. Around 99.8% of aerogel is just empty space, but this incredible material can singlehandedly shield you from a flamethrower attack.
