Chandrayaan-3 done, ISRO moves to Sun mission Aditya-L1, launch on September 2

A day afterΒ Chandrayaan-3Β scripted history after landing on the lunar surface, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) announced that it will launch Aditya-L1 mission on September 2. The Aditya-L1 missionΒ is dedicated to studying the Sun.

The Aditya-L1 mission is ready and waiting, Nilesh M Desai, Director, Space Applications Centre-Isro, Ahmedabad said on Thursday.

The Aditya-L1 mission will be launched by Isro PSLV rocket from Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR (SDSC SHAR),Sriharikota.

Nilesh Desai explained that it would take 127 days for the spacecraft to reach its destination, nearly 15 lakh kilometres away from Earth.

This will place Aditya-L1 in a highly elliptical orbit, allowing it to conduct close observations of the Sun, monitor solar activity, and advance our understanding of the star that sustains life on Earth.

ABOUT THE ADITYA-L1 MISSION

The Aditya-L1 mission represents India’s ambitious endeavour to explore the Sun, a celestial body that has fascinated scientists and space enthusiasts for centuries.

The spacecraft will be equipped with a Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC) which will be used for imaging and spectroscopy of the Sun to better understand the science powering the star.

Apart from VELC, the spacecraft will be equipped with six other instruments as well that will explore the science of the Sun. While four payloads directly view the Sun from the unique vantage point of L1, the remaining three payloads carry out in-situ studies of particles and fields at the Lagrange point L1.

The L1 point of the Earth-Sun system provides an uninterrupted view of the Sun and is currently home to the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory Satellite SOHO from Nasa. This position provides a greater advantage of observing solar activities continuously.
