Summary
Deep Life takes readers to uncharted regions deep beneath Earth's crust in search of life in extreme environments, and reveals how astonishing new discoveries by geomicrobiologists are helping the quest to find life in the solar system. This book exploers the absolute limits of life--the biotic fringe--where today's scientists hope to discover the very origins of life itself
