James Webb Telescope finds carbon source on Jovian moon Europa

JWST provided "observational evidence" regarding carbon presence in Europa's underground ocean
Why it matters: Carbon is one of the primary building blocks of life as we know it. Therefore, the detection of carbon signs on celestial bodies other than Earth is always a significant discovery. Thanks to JWST's powerful instruments, scientists now have evidence that carbon should be abundant on one of the most promising targets for extraterrestrial life research.
