Aditya-L1 Solar Mission: A Brief Overview

ISRO’s maiden solar mission will embark on a journey of approximately 1.5 million kilometers from Earth, spanning over four months. Its destination is the Sun-Earth Lagrangian point 1 (L1), where it will assume a halo orbit. This mission is of paramount importance as it will enable ISRO to study the “effects of solar activities on space weather in real-time.

The Aditya-L1 will carry seven key payloads, allowing it to examine the outermost layer of the Sun (the Corona), its upper atmospheric layers, the Chromosphere, and conduct in-situ studies of solar particle dynamics. What makes this mission even more unique is that it will be the first time a satellite revolves spatially around the solar disk in the near UV band of the Sun. This positioning will enable ISRO to study the dynamics of Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) near the solar disk (~ from 1.05 solar radius) and facilitate early detection of solar storms.
