The Indian Space & Research Organization will Launch the Aditya L1 Solar Mission on 2 September 2023. The rocket is PSLV-XL and it will carry the Spacecraft in Space.
ISRO describes Aditya- L1 as the ”first space-based Indian mission to study the sun” from a halo orbit around the Lagrangian point 1 (L1) of the sun-earth system.
It launched from the Launch View Gallery at Sriharikota on 2 September 2023. It will take nearly 4 months to reach the L1 point from its launch date to sun. That means it will travel nearly 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. This mission is to study the photosphere, chromosphere, and the outermost layers of the Sun’s corona.
