I think I've heard this is like a flipbook of slices of a prisoners body that was donated to science. Or something.

Indeed, it was a death row inmate. He was cut into small slices (a process called "microtome") which were then scanned at high resolution.
I assume he was already dead when they did it.

thou speakest truth! He donated his body to science, and this is what they did with it. So not only have we mapped the Human DNA, we have mapped an entire body, down to organ size and volume. Is that not incredible?! The things we can do, the things we can learn?! Whether you believe in intelligent design or evolution, you have to admit that the things we can do, and the things that we have working within us, are amazing and a wonder to behold.
