Another instrument onboard the Pragyan rover has detected Sulphur on the Lunar surface of the Moon’s south pole. The Alpha Particle X-Ray Spectroscope (APXS) has detected S, as well as other minor elements. ISRO released a video showing an automated hinge mechanism rotating the 18 cm tall APXS, aligning the detector head to be 5 cm in proximity to the Lunar surface. This will help the scientists to figure out if the Sulphur on the Moon is intrinsic or volcanic. Watch for more details.
