The continued exploration of Earth’s biological potential has revealed a range of unexpected microbial habitats. The discovery of organisms inhabiting rock interiors, known as endoliths, was one such revelation that has altered our perspective of habitability, bioenergetics, and the relationship between biology and geology (Walker & Pace, 2007).
