BENGALURU: Vikram lander has passed on yet another crucial piece of information from the moon. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said that the Chandrayaan 3 lander has detected a natural seismic movement on the lunar surface. The movements were detected by the 'ILSA' payload on the lander. 'ILSA' is an instrument that helps to measure ground vibrations generated by natural quakes, impacts, and artificial events. 'ILSA' handed over the information about the movements on the lunar surface to the ISRO on August 26.

Meanwhile, the Vikram lander is passing on new pieces of information from the south pole of the Moon every day. The other day, ISRO confirmed the presence of sulphur on the lunar surface. The presence of sulphur was confirmed in an experiment conducted by the Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscope (LIBS) instrument on the Pragyan rover. The presence of aluminium, calcium, ferrous, chromium, titanium, manganese, silicon, and oxygen was also found. ISRO also informed that the search for hydrogen is going on.
