Caption

High temperature microbe. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of strain 121 (red circle) a hyperthermophilic (high temperature-loving) extremophile microbe isolated from a hydrothermal vent in the Pacific Ocean. This bacteria-like microorganism from the Archaea domain exists comfortably at a temperature of 121 degrees Celsius and can survive for a few hours up to 130 degrees. It is the most extreme temperature of any known organism. Strain 121 survives by feeding on iron oxide. It has several tail-like flagella (dark pink) which it uses for propulsion.
