Happy news to all space enthusiasts! The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has achieved yet another milestone in space exploration. On September 2, 2023, ISRO’s Aditya L1 was successfully launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre. This remarkable feat marks the beginning of a new era in space-based observatory class studies of the Sun.
Aditya-L1 is a revolutionary spacecraft that will enable us to study the Sun like never before. It is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and is powered by ISRO’s reliable Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). This means that we can expect accurate and reliable data from Aditya-L1, which will help us understand the Sun’s behaviour and its impact on our planet.
Through the official X account, ISRO has informed that PSLV-C57/Aditya-L1 Mission: The launch of Aditya-L1 by PSLV-C57 is accomplished successfully. The vehicle has placed the satellite precisely into its intended orbit. India’s first solar observatory has begun its journey to the destination of Sun-Earth L1 point.
The inaugural solar mission of the nation, Aditya-L1, is equipped with seven distinct payloads to conduct an extensive examination of the sun. Four of these payloads will facilitate the observation of solar light, while the remaining three will measure the in-situ parameters of plasma and magnetic fields. The Aditya-L1 mission is anticipated to arrive at the observation point in 126 days, which is equivalent to four months. Nevertheless, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has yet to announce a definitive date or time for the mission.
India’s pioneering space mission to explore the largest object in the solar system has been named after Surya, the revered Hindu deity of the Sun, also known as Aditya. The spacecraft is headed towards the Lagrange point 1, the precise location between the Sun and Earth, and is aptly named Aditya-L1. This mission marks a significant milestone in India’s space exploration program and is expected to provide valuable insights into the Sun’s corona, solar winds, and other phenomena. With Aditya-L1, India is poised to make a significant contribution to the global scientific community’s understanding of the Sun and its impact on our planet.
As we continue to explore the vast expanse of space, Aditya-L1 is a crucial step towards unlocking the mysteries of the Sun. It is a testament to ISRO’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of space exploration and advancing our understanding of the universe.
