Aditya-L1 Launch Live Updates: Isro Confirms Successful Satellite Placement in Intended Orbit: In an extraordinary feat of scientific achievement, the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) successfully launched India’s maiden solar mission, Aditya-L1, from Sriharikota on Saturday. This groundbreaking mission marks a significant milestone in India’s space exploration endeavors.
Aditya-L1, the first of its kind space-based observatory, is poised to unravel the secrets of our closest star, the Sun. The mission commenced with the reliable Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) propelling the spacecraft into space at precisely 11:50 AM.
After a remarkable journey spanning approximately 1.5 million kilometers over 125 days, the Aditya-L1 spacecraft is anticipated to enter a Halo orbit around the Lagrangian point L1. This strategic location offers unparalleled proximity to the Sun, providing a vantage point for comprehensive solar observations.
The primary objectives of the Aditya-L1 mission encompass a range of crucial scientific inquiries. These include delving into the mysteries of Coronal Heating and Solar Wind Acceleration, investigating the initiation of Coronal Mass Ejections, studying near-earth space weather, and analyzing the distribution of solar wind. To accomplish these ambitious goals, the mission carries an impressive array of seven scientific payloads.
Isro’s unwavering commitment to advancing our understanding of the Sun and its impact on our planet shines through this pioneering mission. The Aditya-L1 spacecraft’s cutting-edge instruments and scientific payloads hold the promise of unlocking invaluable insights into the workings of our dynamic star.
As the Aditya-L1 mission embarks on this remarkable odyssey, the scientific community and space enthusiasts eagerly await the wealth of knowledge that will be gleaned from this extraordinary endeavor. Isro’s visionary pursuit of space exploration continues to elevate India’s standing in the realm of scientific excellence.
Stay tuned for further updates as the Aditya-L1 mission ventures into uncharted territory, illuminating the mysteries of our radiant Sun.
Aditya-L1 Launch Live Updates:
Highlights of the Aditya L1 Launch: According to the ISRO chief, Aditya-L1 was successfully injected into the correct orbit. The first solar observatory in India has started its 125-day trek to the Sun-Earth L1 point.
Highlights of the Aditya L1 Launch: At 11.50 am, Aditya-L1 blasted off from Sriharikota. Aditya L1 will approach its destination using a strategy similar to Chandrayaan-3. The ISRO Aditya-L1 solar mission will take roughly four months to go from Sriharikota (Earth) to L1.
On Saturday, the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota successfully launched an ISRO spacecraft. With this, India took a step towards finishing its first solar trip. The Aditya L1 mission will go to the Sun for 125 days on board ISRO’s dependable PSLV.
For sixteen days, the Aditya L1 spacecraft will remain in Earth’s orbit. The spacecraft will be positioned on the L1 point in the halo orbit around the Sun after a four-month voyage.
Today’s launch took occurred at 11:50 a.m. from Sriharikota’s Satish Dhawan Space Centre. According to ISRO, the 23.10-hour countdown for the launch of Aditya L1 aboard PSLV C57 began on Friday.
Aditya L1 is intended to make in-situ studies of the Solar wind at L1, or the Sun-Earth Lagrangian point, which is about 1.5 million kilometers from Earth, and to provide remote observations of the Solar corona at L1.
