NASA discovers carbon source on Jupiter’s moon Europa
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has made a groundbreaking discovery on Jupiter’s moon Europa, unveiling the presence of a significant carbon source on its icy surface.
According to NASA, the discovery of carbon dioxide holds significant implications for the search for life beyond Earth and our understanding of Europa’s complex geology.
“On Earth, life likes chemical diversity – the more diversity, the better,” said Geronimo Villanueva of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. “We’re carbon-based life. Understanding the chemistry of Europa’s ocean will help us determine whether it’s hostile to life...
