Subsequent measurements have additionally exposed the presents of manganese, silicon, and oxygen. The inquiry into the detection of hydrogen is presently in progress, as stated by ISRO.

“In-situ scientific experiments continue …..Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscope (LIBS) instrument onboard the Rover unambiguously confirms the presence of Sulphur (S) in the lunar surface near the south pole, through first-ever in-situ measurements. Al, Ca, Fe, Cr, Ti, Mn, Si, and O are also detected, as expected. Search for Hydrogen (H) is underway. LIBS instrument is developed at the Laboratory for Electro-Optics Systems (LEOS)/ISRO, Bengaluru,” said ISRO in a tweet.
