ISRO's Aditya L-1 mission, India's first solar study mission, was launched to explore the Sun's mysteries
The mission uses the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) in 'XL' configuration to reach its destination.
Aditya L-1's journey begins in a lower Earth orbit, with onboard propulsion gradually increasing its orbit and velocity.
The spacecraft will be stationed in a halo orbit around Lagrange point 1 (L1), 1.5 million kilometers from Earth.
The mission aims to study the Sun's upper atmospheric layers, coronal mass ejections (CMEs), the corona's magnetic field, and its extreme heat.
Aditya L-1 carries seven payloads, including instruments to study the solar corona, UV imaging, and X-ray analysis.
Space weather, influenced by solar activity, can disrupt Earth's magnetic field and impact space assets.
Lagrange points offer stable positions in space, with L1 chosen for its direct line of sight to the Sun.
Studying the Sun from space is essential to understand its radiations, particles, and magnetic fields and their effects on our solar system.
