India successfully launched first sun mission Aditya- L1 1.5 million km away from earth

Aditya L1 Mission Launch Live Updates:  Isro successfully launched India's maiden solar mission, Aditya-L1, from Sriharikota on Saturday at 11:50 am

India's first mission to study the Sun is underway now. The spacecraft will be located in a fixed Sun-Earth system location in a halo orbit.

What exactly is Aditya L1?

The spacecraft is anticipated to be placed in a Halo orbit around the Lagrangian point L1, which is thought to be closest to the Sun, after traveling around 1.5 million kilometers from Earth over 125 days.

Aditya-L1 will spend 16 days in earth-bound orbits after launch, during which time it will do five rotations to increase its speed.

It will send images of the sun, among other things, for research purposes. A small object prefers to stay in one of five Lagrangian points (or parking areas) between the Earth and the Sun, according to scientists. Spacecraft can use these locations in space to stay there for longer periods of time while using less fuel.

Not at all, no. Aditya L1 won't touch down on the Sun; instead, it will be set up in a constant orbit around the Sun and the Earth. Since it is difficult to make a direct landing on the Sun, the satellite and its cargo will continue to orbit the Sun in order to gather data.

Aditya L1 will it land on Sun?

The seven payloads of the spacecraft will be spread across the sun. Logistics point 1 (L1), where the satellite will be deployed, will be in halo orbit. The main benefit of having that satellite in the halo orbit is that it will be able to observe the Sun without any occultation or eclipses.

Understanding Coronal Heating and Solar Wind Acceleration, Coronal Mass Ejection Initiation, Near Earth Space Weather, and Solar Wind Distribution are among the mission's primary goals. Seven scientific payloads are carried on the Aditya-L1 mission to conduct the research.

One of the longest launches of ISRO's workhorse launch vehicle, the PSLV-C57/Aditya-L1, can be attributed to this mission. The 2016 PSLV-C35 mission, which was completed two hours, 15 minutes, and 33 seconds after liftoff, remains the PSLV mission with the longest duration.
