Chandrayaan-3’s Pragyan Rover Presence of Sulphur Presence On The Surface Of Moon

Chandrayaan-3’s Pragyan Rover Chandrayaan-3’s Pragyan Rover confirms the existence of sulphur with a variety of other elements on the surface of the Moon’s South Pole through their  Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscope (LIBS) instrument onboard the Pragyan rover. This achievement marks the 1st in-site measurement of the Moon’s basic making through operating a material’s surface, such as soil or rock bed, to high-energy laser pulses.

Chandrayaan-3’s Pragyan Rover

After the 1st ever soft landing at Moon surface, Chandrayaan-3’s Pragyan Rover found traces of sulphur Presence On The Surface Of the Moon through in-situ scientific experiments and through localized plasma which determine the presence of other elements on the moon’s surface, essential for understanding geology, history, and potential resources on Moon surface. Aside from sulphur, the LIBS had detected the presence of aluminium, calcium, iron, chromium, titanium, manganese, silicon, and oxygen, providing a comprehensive overview of the moon’s elemental composition. The LIBS exposed the lunar material through high-energy laser pulses, as each element emits a unique set of wavelengths of light when analyzed spectroscopically

The presence of Sulphur is confirmed
