James Webb Space Telescope sniffs out carbon dioxide around an alien world

 The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST or Webb) has detected carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of an exoplanet in a breakthrough discovery that will usher in a new era of research on worlds outside our solar system. 

The detection came during the James Webb Space Telescope‘s first campaign focusing on exoplanets, which are planets orbiting other stars. The observations targeted a hot gas giant called WASP-39 b located some 700 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Virgo.
