Aditya L1 Launch: India’s Solar Mission Countdown Begins

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Gears Up

ISRO, the Indian Space Research Organisation, is ready for its mission to study the sun after the successful Chandrayaan-3.

Launch Date and Time

The launch is set to happen on September 2 at 11:50 am.

What’s Aditya L1’s Mission?

This will be India’s first mission to study the sun, and it will carry several scientific instruments.

Purpose of the Aditya L1 Mission

The Aditya-L1 spacecraft will observe the sun’s outer atmosphere (solar corona) from a distance and directly measure the solar wind at L1, a point around 1.5 million kilometers from Earth.

Important Note

This mission is the first of its kind by ISRO, focusing on studying the Sun.

ISRO’s Preparedness

ISRO Chairman S Somanath stated that they are fully prepared for the launch. The rocket and satellite are ready, and the launch rehearsal is complete.

Countdown Commencement

The countdown for the launch will start on Friday, preceding the launch date.

Aditya L1’s Position

Aditya-L1 will be positioned at a special spot in space called L1, where the gravitational forces of the Sun and Earth balance out. This unique position reduces the spacecraft’s fuel usage.
