In a groundbreaking stride, ISRO, India's space agency, is on the verge of an astronomical feat with its Aditya L-1 mission, scheduled to reach the Sun's L-1 orbit by January 6. This significant advancement propels India into the global arena of solar exploration, marking a pivotal moment for space research.

Astrophysicist RC Kapoor, in an exclusive interview with India TV, elaborated on the mission's critical aspects. The Aditya L-1 spacecraft's journey toward the L-1 orbit around the Sun is a meticulously planned maneuver, positioning India as the third nation globally to achieve this milestone in solar missions.

Professor Kapoor addressed the deliberate pace of the mission, clarifying that ISRO strategically focused on conserving fuel during the orbit-raising phase following the September 2 launch. This cautious approach was imperative due to gravitational influences from both Earth and the Sun near the L-1 point, ensuring Aditya L-1's stable trajectory.

Monitoring the satellite's performance remains a priority for ISRO, with plans for vigilant station-keeping activities. Kapoor highlighted the significance of this scrutiny to guarantee uninterrupted observations of the Sun from the L-1 point.
