Thioethenylidene, C2S, was identified by its four NJ = 1011 – 910 to 1112 – 1014 transitions with rest frequencies between 131.5 and 144.3 GHz.

used the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) to study the molecular content of a foreground galaxy at z = 0.89 (FG0.89 consisting of two subsources, FG0.89SW and FG0.89NO) in absorption toward the quasar PKS 1830-211:

Astron. Astrophys. 535, (2011) Art. No. A103.
The low energy fine structure lines NJ = 55 – 43, 65 – 54, and 76 – 65 with rest frequencies near 57.2, 69.3, and 81.5 GHz, respectively, were detected in absorption.
