Aditya L1 achieved its second earth-bound maneuver successfully, a critical milestone in its mission.
The maneuver was executed by ISRO's Telemetry, Tracking, and Command Network (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru.
Aditya L1 is on a mission to study the Sun from a halo orbit around the sun-earth Lagrangian point L1, located 1.5 million km from Earth.
The spacecraft will undergo two more earth-bound orbital maneuvers before reaching its intended orbit at L1.
ISRO successfully launched Aditya L1 using the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C57).
Aditya L1's orbit around L1 allows for continuous observation of the Sun without interruptions.
The mission carries seven scientific payloads developed by ISRO and national research laboratories.
These payloads are designed to observe different layers of the Sun, including the corona, using various detectors.
The data collected by Aditya L1 will provide crucial insights into solar activities and their impact on space weather.
