  1. Why did the heart freeze to different colours? Or was the colouration already there (albeit less "white") prior to freezing due to the extraction process (e.g. anoxia, etc.)?

    • replying to C's comment, the heart turned white because everything in it was frozen. hot metal is red, but when you freeze it, it turns to a metallic silver. same with a heart. when its warm, it's a nice bloody red, but when you freeze it, it all freezes and turns greyish white.

  3. good to know about the effect of liquid nitrogen; what happens if it falls on a person; it could be for scientific use; but good to know about it. thanks
