In a groundbreaking discovery, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope may have just spotted signs of extraterrestrial life on a faraway exoplanet 8.6 times as massive as Earth, dubbed K2-18b. In a study accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, researchers said James Webb detected a molecule called dimethyl sulfide (DMS), which is exclusively produced by living organisms on Earth. Along with DMS, researchers also detected the presence of carbon-bearing molecules, including methane and carbon dioxide, in the exoplanet’s atmosphere. According to NASA, the presence of these gasses suggests K2-18b could be a Hycean exoplanet, potentially possessing a hydrogen-rich atmosphere and ocean-covered surface, significantly boosting its odds of hosting life. More data is needed to confirm the findings. However, researchers said they were “shocked” by the initial results and the possibility that K2-18b might offer the first confirmation of extraterrestrial life… (READ MORE)
