The successful Chandrayaan-3 mission of ISRO has confirmed that it has found more signs of Sulphur and many other elements in the south pole of the moon. The rover of Chandrayaan-3, Pragyan has defined that, on the face of the moon they have found Sulphur with the advanced technique. Currently, the Indian Space Research Organization is providing all of this information with the help of their ongoing missionChandrayaan-3. In addition to that, they have said the Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscope (LIBS) is an instrument of the rover that can detect its presence.

Along with the LIBS, there is also another onboard instrument, known as Alpha Particle X-ray Spectroscope (APXS), that has also confirmed that Sulphur is present on the elements of the moon. On this matter, from the authority ISRO a tweet has been made. In the tweet, ISRO wrote ‘Another instrument onboard the Rover confirms the presence of Sulphur (S) in the region, through another technique. The Alpha Particle X-ray Spectroscope (APXS) has detected S, as well as other minor elements. This finding by Ch-3 compels scientists to develop fresh explanations for the source of Sulphur (S) in the area: intrinsic?, volcanic?, meteoritic?,……?’.

Apart from this tweet, ISRO has also shared a video of the rover and said ‘The video shows an automated hinge mechanism rotating the 18 cm tall APXS, aligning the detector head to be approximately 5 cm in proximity to the lunar surface. PRL, Ahmedabad has developed APXS with support from PRL, Ahmedabad. URSC, Bengaluru has developed the deployment mechanism’.

These new findings are quite interesting for all the scientists. Now they can do more research about the satellite. With the help of all this research, now everyone would get an opportunity to gather more information about the moon, which will be immensely helpful for all to understand various things. That is why, the researchers are instructed to create new reports based on the current information. As of the current report on the presence of Sulphur, scientists would get to gather more information regarding the composition of the moon and many other details like its volcanic activity, and the meteoritic impact.

Chandrayaan-3 is a successful mission by the Indian Space Research Organization. This mission has made India the fourth country to successfully land on the moon. This spacecraft is the very first one to touch down the moon by doing a soft landing in the South Pole of the satellite. Right after that, the Pragyan rover and Vikram Lander started investing in the southern part of the moon. And it can be said that with this mission, India is getting their hands on some very important details of the southern part of the moon. This research would be extremely useful in understanding the moon’s origin, which is a huge part of space science. Chandrayaan-3 will always be considered one of the most successful missions done by the country of India. The country has made a history, which will be remembered by everyone for a century.
