Chandrayaan 3’s LIBS Instrument Confirms Sulphur Presence on Lunar Surface: ISRO Unveils Latest Lunar Discoveries

On Tuesday, ISRO confirmed through in-situ measurements that Chandrayaan 3’s LIBS instrument detected sulphur on the lunar surface near the south pole.

The device also identified silicon, calcium, iron, titanium, manganese, aluminium, and oxygen, as anticipated by ISRO.

According to ISRO, the quest for hydrogen (H) is ongoing.

The Laboratory for Electro-Optics Systems (LEOS)/ISRO, Bengaluru, is where the LIBS instrument is being built.

On Tuesday morning, ISRO provided a fresh update on Chandrayaan 3’s Pragyan Rover mission. The rover is currently engaged in exploration at the lunar south pole.

ISRO reported on X (formerly Twitter) that the rover is currently on its trip to learn more about the Moon.

“Hello earthlings! This is #Chandrayaan3’s Pragyan Rover. I hope you’re doing well. I want to let everyone know that I’m on my way to uncover the secrets of the Moon. Me and my friend Vikram Lander are in touch. We’re in good health. The best is coming soon,” announced ISRO InSight on X, formerly known as Twitter.

On August 28, ISRO announced the discovery of a 4-meter diameter crater on the lunar surface by the Pragyan Rover.

Chandrayaan-3 Mission: On August 27, 2023, the Rover found a 4-meter diameter crater just 3 meters ahead. The Rover was given the order to reverse the course, the ISRO reported on X (formerly Twitter).

According to ISRO, the rover is currently travelling down a new course securely.

On August 23, Chandrayaan-3’s successful lunar south pole landing marked a significant milestone for India, being the first country to achieve this feat.

The country became the fourth to complete a successful lunar landing after the US, China, and Russia.
