Aditya-L1 (“SuryaYaan” – hypothetical name) –

The launch is scheduled on September 2, 2023, at 11:50 am.

Mission Overview -

Following the successful landing of Chandrayaan 3, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is preparing to launch the latest spacecraft. ISRO’s Aditya-L1 mission will be the first space-based Solar Indian expedition to study the Sun. If you are interested in learning more about the ISRO Aditya L1 Mission Budget, we can tell you that it is made on a Rs 400 Crore Budget as of September 2023. You should be aware that the ISRO L1 Launch Vehicle is the PSLV-XL, which will transport the spacecraft to the Sun’s orbit.

Mission Objectives -

The mission’s goal is to investigate the Sun, specifically its outermost layer, known as the corona. The name “Aditya” comes from the Sanskrit term for the Sun. The major goal of the Aditya-L1 mission is to better understand the dynamics of the solar corona, which is important in space weather and solar-terrestrial interactions that affect Earth and other planets in the solar system. The mission’s goal is to investigate the magnetic field of the corona, temperature changes, and the mechanisms underlying solar wind acceleration. The Aditya-L1 mission will launch on September 2, 2023, with the goal of studying space weather and solar gases.

The major science objectives of Aditya-L1 mission are:

  • Study of Solar upper atmospheric (chromosphere and corona) dynamics.
  • Study of chromospheric and coronal heating, physics of the partially ionized plasma, initiation of the coronal mass ejections, and flares
  • Observe the in-situ particle and plasma environment providing data for the study of particle dynamics from the Sun.
  • Physics of solar corona and its heating mechanism.
  • Diagnostics of the coronal and coronal loops plasma: Temperature, velocity and density.
  • Development, dynamics and origin of CMEs.
  • Identify the sequence of processes that occur at multiple layers (chromosphere, base and extended corona) which eventually leads to solar eruptive events.
  • Magnetic field topology and magnetic field measurements in the solar corona.
  • Drivers for space weather (origin, composition, and dynamics of solar wind).

Launch Vehicle & Other details -

  • The Aditya-L1 Launch Vehicle is PSLV-XL and it will carry the Spacecraft in Space.
  • The launch site takes place at Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC-SHAR) in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.
  • The Launch Vehicle will carry the Spacecraft in Space and then Aditya L1 will get separated from it.
  • It carries 7 Payloads which we have mentioned above and each payload plays a vital role in the mission.

According to ISRO director S. Somanath, Aditya-L1 will take 125 days to reach. The first Indian solar mission to orbit in the class of an observatory, Aditya-L1 is designed to study the Sun. The spacecraft will be put in an approximately 1.5 million km-diameter halo orbit around the Lagrangian point 1 (L1) of the Sun-Earth system. Aditya-L1 would investigate the Sun’s outer atmosphere because the Sun is a massive sphere of gas. Aditya-L1 won’t touch down on the Sun or get any closer to it.

GOOD LUCK ISRO! Aditya-L1.
