Moon Mineralogy Mapper or M3 | ScienceMonk

Moon mineralogy mapper, which is also known as M3 was one of the most successful payloads from Chandrayaan-1. M3 from the Brown University and JPL was an imaging spectrometer designed to map the surface mineral composition. It confirmed the traces of water vapour, which was a significant contribution of the Chandrayaan-1 mission.
