Treasures on South Pole of Moon could be the biggest discovery of the 21st century. On 23rd August 2023, India’s Chandrayaan-3 Vikram, the latest mission by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) became the first craft to ever touch down at the Moon’s South Pole. In a remarkable effort for lunar exploration, Chandrayaan 3 has revealed many findings about the South Pole of the moon mission.
If the Moon South Pole landing was not enough for you, then behold to know that just after weeks of this mission, India is now planning a sun mission, “Aditya L1 Mission“. This solar mission is expected to gather significant data on how the sun behaves and its mind-boggling phenomenon.

It is pertinent to mention that the South Pole of Moon temperature averages around -13 degrees Celsius (260k); thus, chances to find frozen water too. There are many precious metals and minerals on the moon. Chandrayaan 3’s Pragyan rover has been running various scientific experiments. The presence of various elements on the moon’s surface has been confirmed by the mission, especially near the South Pole, which includes:
- Manganese (Mn)
- Chromium (Cr)
- Aluminum (Al)
- Titanium (Ti)
- Calcium (Ca)
- Oxygen (O)
- Sulphur (S)
- Silicon (Si)
- Iron (Fe)
According to ISRO Chief S. Somnath, India has achieved a significant milestone by soft landing on the moon’s southernmost part. He further said that the South Pole of the moon has unique characteristics, such as less sunlight exposure, which can potentially make it the best option for future human colonization on the surface of the moon.

These revelations hold much importance as they can create the way for future ventures, for example, searching for the presence of water on the moon if hydrogen is found, which will be a critical resource for any lunar habitation plans as National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is planning to make a permanent base on the moon. According to NASA’s reports, frozen water may be present in permanently shadowed craters at the moon poles.
