Caption: Halobacteria on the head of a pin. Combined footage and animation of bacteria on the head of a pin. The clip starts with a pin held by a human pointing to the head of the pin. The view zooms in to show a 3D animation of the bacteria based on an environmental scanning electron micrograph (ESEM). The view then zooms out again to show the source of the bacteria, the mineral-rich Owens Lake, California, USA. The red colour of this dry mineral-encrusted lake is caused by salt-loving (halophilic) bacteria (halobacteria).
