NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has made a significant discovery by detecting carbon dioxide on the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa. The analysis suggests that this carbon dioxide likely originated from Europa's subsurface ocean and was not brought in by external sources. This finding raises intrigue about the ocean's chemistry and its potential to support life as we understand it. Scientists are now eager to delve deeper into understanding the ocean's chemistry, as it could hold key clues about the habitability of this intriguing celestial body.
