James Webb telescope finds potential signature of life on Jupiter’s icy moon Europa

NASA’s James Webb House Telescope (JWST) has revealed do-it-yourself carbon dioxide on Jupiter’s icy moon Europa, elevating the chance that the frigid waterworld may host life.

Europa, which is a bit bit smaller than Earth’s moon, is roofed with a crust of water ice enveloping a saltwater ocean. The presence of liquid water makes Europa an intriguing object of exploration for scientists taken with extraterrestrial life. However till now, nobody had proven that the ocean contained the correct molecules, notably carbon, which is a elementary constructing block of life on Earth.
