Caption: Tardigrade. Differential interference contrast (DIC) light micrograph of a tardigrade (water bear, Hypsibius dujardini). Water bears are small, water-dwelling, segmented micro-animals with eight legs that live in damp habitats such as moss or lichen. They are classed as extremophiles as they can survive dry conditions by changing into a desiccated state, in which they can remain for many years. They have even been brought back alive after spending 10 days in the vacuum of space. Magnification: x400 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
