Caption: Hot springs, Iceland. Steam rising from hot springs over an icy landscape in Iceland. These hot springs contain bacterial deposits that are used by bathers in the springs as a moisturiser for the skin. The bacteria are thermophilic extremophiles, adapted to thrive at high temperatures. These bacteria are being studied by the Icelandic biotechnology company Prokaria.
