ISRO successfully launches India’s first solar mission Aditya L1 From Sriharikota

Aditya L1: On September 2, 2023, ISRO’s Aditya L1 was successfully launched from Satish Dhawan Space Center. Aditya-L1 is launched by ISRO using their dependable Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), which is the first class of space-based observatory to study the Sun.

Aditya-L1, the nation’s first solar mission, is carrying seven separate payloads for a thorough study of the sun, three of which will measure in-situ characteristics of the plasma and magnetic fields while the other four will observe the sun’s light.

The Aditya-L1 mission, according to the NASA, is anticipated to arrive at the observation location in about 126 days, or four months. However, the ISRO has not yet declared a certain date or time.

It will be positioned in a halo orbit 1.5 million kilometers from the Earth in the direction of the sun, known as Lagrangian Point 1 (or L1).
