The world's leading scientific and specialist image and footage agency, Science Photo Library, has been in the business of providing world-class imagery for the last 30 years. To celebrate their 30th year, they have been offering a series of short-term sales offers.

Their latest sales offer gives you the chance to purchase video clips or images contained within a special showreel showcasing the library's collections. Due to expire on July 29th 2011, you'll need to get your orders in now, even if you don't need the imagery right away.

To take advantage of the offer, first need register on Science Photo Library's website: www.sciencephoto.com (unless you have already bought from them, in which case go through your normal channels) and quote "summer_sale_11" when ordering. The offer can be used once for any number of the images and clips contained within this showreel (apart from those in the montage – you can't see them properly!). See this page for the showreel and accompanying galleries.

Science Photo Library (SPL) was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of 'Worlds Within Worlds', a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had the idea of setting up Science Photo Library.

Since then, the library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life. In 2009 Science Photo Library expanded into footage, and now represents a growing Motion collection of the best science footage from around the world.
