The Indian space mission discovered the presence of sulfur in the south pole of the moon

Chandrayaan-3 made history on August 23 when it made India the first country to reach the southern part of the satellite.

The first investigations of the Indian space mission Chandrayaan-3 On the south side of the moon was discovered The presence of sulfur on the surface of the satelliteThis was reported by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on Tuesday.

He notes that the LIBS measurement instrument, which analyzes the composition of materials by exposing them to intense laser pulses, “unequivocally confirms the presence of sulfur (S) in the region, something that was not possible with instruments on board orbiters.” ISRO’s statement.

Preliminary analyzes collected by this measuring instrument, aboard the Chandrayaan-3 rover, reveal that there are Aluminum (Al), Calcium (Ca), Iron (Fe), Chromium (Cr), and Titanium (Ti) On the south side of the moon, says the Indian Space Agency. remain from Manganese (Mn), silicon (Si), and oxygen (O) In the other measurements add writing.

The Indian Space Organization also notes that a “thorough investigation is under way into the presence of hydrogen” on the moon.

The first investigations of Chandrayaan-3 on the natural moon’s southern face also revealed aluminum, calcium, iron, chromium and titanium.

Chandrayaan-3 made history on August 23 by transforming India into The first country to reach the southernmost satelliteThrough which important information for Earth will be collected about the presence of water and minerals during the 14 Earth days that the mission is expected to continue.

Less than a week after this historic moon landing, ISRO has announced that it is preparing for the first space mission to study the sunIt is a mission that will be launched next Saturday from the Indian Space Agency Center in Sriharikota, in the south of the Asian country.

India’s Chandrayaan-3 space mission reached the moon on Wednesday, bringing the Asian country the fourth to land on a natural planetary satellite and the first to do so in its far south, where experts suspect it may find ice.

This is one of the main goals of the mission, which also plans to conduct various scientific experiments on Earth and analyze the lunar surface during 14 Earth days, which is equivalent to half a day on the satellite, which remains operational.

This probe is composed of a Lander and Roverhas almost the same objectives as the previous mission, although its structure has been significantly enhanced to correct the errors that led to it. Chandrayaan-2 crashes into the moon In 2019 while attempting to land on the moon.

Its successor has spent 40 days in space since taking off from India on July 14, propelled by India’s most powerful and heaviest rocket, but not enough to prevent the probe from having to complete several orbits of the Earth to gain enough speed to reach lunar orbit. which entered the first week of August.
