Milk bottles. View of three types of bottled milk. At upper left is semi-skimmed milk, with a red and silver top. This milk has had the majority of its fat removed before bottling. At centre is gold-top milk, which has full fat. Cream is seen at the top of the bottle as the yellowish band. At right is silver-top milk, which is intermediate between the two. Milk has the fat removed to make it more healthy to drink. It is also pasteurised to kill any micro-organisms living in it. This process involves raising the milk's temperature to 64 degrees Celsius or more for a standard length of time. Milk is rich in the essential mineral calcium, and also contains protein and vitamins.
Science Photo Library 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 an idea of setting up Science Photo Library.
Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the 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.
