According to a study published in the journal Nature Astronomy, water vapour forms when ice from the moon’s surface turns from solid directly into gas, a process called sublimation. Astronomers have uncovered the first evidence of water vapour in the atmosphere of Jupiter's moon Ganymede by using new and archival datasets from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
