India’s lunar rover finds 1st evidence of sulfur near the moon’s south pole

India’s moon rover, Chandrayaan-3, has for the first time detected sulfur near the moon’s south pole, the country’s space agency announced earlier this week. The sought-after element is usually found near volcanoes on Earth, so its appearance on the moon hints at our satellite’s volcanic history as well as past atmospheric conditions, scientists say.

And reserves of the element could be key for building infrastructure on the moon.
