Aditya-L1 Mission

On Tuesday, ISRO (the Indian Space Research Organisation) shared that India's first solar mission, the Aditya-L1 spacecraft, completed its second maneuver close to Earth successfully. ISRO's team in Bengaluru directed this action, and they kept an eye on the spacecraft from ground stations in Mauritius, Bengaluru, and Port Blair. As a result, the spacecraft is now in a different path in space, which measures 282 km by 40225 km. This update was posted by ISRO on 'X' very early on Tuesday.


ISRO also mentioned that they've planned the next move (EBN#3) for September 10th, around 02:30 AM Indian time.


After Chandrayaan-3 safely landed near the Moon's South Pole, ISRO launched India's first solar mission, Aditya-L1, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota on a Saturday. This mission has seven different payloads on board. Four of them will watch the sun, and the other three will gather information right there about things like plasma and magnetic fields.

ISRO said they are sending Aditya-L1 to a special spot in space, kind of close to the Sun but still very far away from Earth, about 1.5 million km away. It will take about four months to get there. Aditya-L1 won't touch or get too close to the Sun. This unique path allows it to watch the Sun all the time and study how it affects the weather in space near Earth. The mission aims to learn more about the Sun's outer part, its heat, and other things like solar wind and events that affect space weather, such as Coronal Mass Ejections and flares.


Aditya-L1, a special satellite focused on studying the Sun, wants to discover new things about our star. To get to where it needs to be, the satellite will do five moves while flying around Earth for 16 days to gain enough speed.

After that, Aditya-L1 will take a long trip called a "trans-Lagrangian insertion maneuver" for 110 days. During this journey, it will travel about 15 million kilometers to reach a place called the L1 point, which is like a safe spot between Earth and the Sun. Once it gets there, another move will make Aditya-L1 go around that point. You can find all this information on ISRO's official website.
