Astro Graphics Tardigrade

I had a look around at the mighty little Tardigrade. These tiny creatures are so hardy they can survive for some time in space, died out to 1% of normal and even heated to over 150 degrees. Anyhow, I can across this particular image of one on the Astro Graphics site, which once you get there then lets you casually browse through a while library of wonderful images. The electron microscope images and the like actually have a real 3D CG quality about them - but they are pure nature...
