Caption: Bacterial hot springs research, Iceland. Microbiologist Viggo Marteinnsson collecting bacteria from a hot spring, in Iceland, with a woman bathing in the water. These hot springs contain bacterial deposits (white) that are used as a moisturiser for the skin. The woman has applied this natural moisturiser to her feet. The bacteria are thermophilic extremophiles, adapted to thrive at high temperatures. Marteinnsson is carrying out this research for the Icelandic biotechnology company Prokaria.
