ISRO launched India first Sun mission 'Aditya-L1

‘Aditya-L1’, India’s first Sun mission, has taken off from Sriharikota‘s space center. The Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota launched this mission on September 2 at 11:50 AM. Aditya L1 will arrive at a near approach to the Sun in around 4 months. Around 15 lakh kilometers would be traveled by Aditya L1 from the Earth.

According to ISRO, Aditya-L1 would be launched into a halo orbit 1.5 million kilometers away from Earth in the direction of the Sun. Without experiencing any eclipses, the satellite and payload will continue to orbit the Sun in the same relative location. This will facilitate real-time observation of solar activity and its influence on space weather.
