One thing I always wonder when hearing things like this is that those microbes in the sandstone have, like all life, evolved for billions of years. presumably, its ancestors lived in much more life-friendly habitats, where it probably is much more likely that life will form, and after eons spread to the wierdest places. In other words, had the entire planet been nothing but antartic sandstone, there probably wouldnt have been any microbes either. just a thought
