Meanwhile: On Europa

Something in the Europan Ocean is emitting carbon dioxide


Heavy concentrations of carbon dioxide in the salty Tara Regio region, where the surface ice has been disrupted, suggest the carbon originated deep in the ocean. This suggests a similarity with Earth's deep-sea hydrothermal vent systems, where life on Earth may have originated, Scientific American reported. 

It's interesting (and impressive) that this was discovered by the James Webb Telescope, and missed by the Juno and the previous probes in the Jovian System.
