Details of the Mission
Indian Space Research Organisation [ISRO] is all set for its next mission after the magnificent launch of Chandrayaan 3. Aditya L-1 is all set to launch on September 2 at11:50 a.m.The satellite can travel between the Earth and the Lagrange 1 point, or L1, between the Earth and the Sun. It is a distance of 1.5 million kilometres. This distance is less than 1% of 150 million kilometres between the Earth and the Sun, yet it is approximately four times more than the Chandrayaan missions covered. The space mission planned will take off from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.ISRO announced on Wednesday that the internal inspections and the launch rehearsal for the forthcoming mission, had been conducted successfully.The rocket PSLV-C57 would be of use to launch the spacecraft.
The Purpose and Objectives of the Mission
The purpose of the Aditya-L1 mission is to observe the Sun from an orbit around the L1. It will monitor the photosphere, chromosphere, and solar corona in various wavebands. The spaceship has seven payloads.
ISRO, in this mission, plans to study the plasma environment and the in-situ and particle dynamics. It will also observe the physics of solar corona and its heating mechanism. The magnetic field topology and magnetic measurement will be thoroughly recorded and estimated. Lagrangian Point 1 (L1), which is 1.5 million kilometres from the Earth in the Sun’s direction, will be the object of Aditya-L1’s halo orbit. The anticipated time for completion is four months.Aditya-L1 will observe the Sun from this prime location without hindrances or eclipses. It will enable researchers to track solar activity and its effects on space weather time. The data from the spacecraft will also contribute to a fuller understanding of space weather factors and highlight the processes that lead to eruptions in solar events.
Planning and preparation for the launch
The satellite launch will be aired live online on Saturday at the city’s B M Birla Planetarium. On Friday, the pupils from Punjabi government school took a flight from Punjab to attend the launch ceremony. Harjot Singh Bains, the minister of education of Punjab, on Friday, stated that the state government will compensate for all the costs for the students travelling to Sriharikota.One of the visitors from Chennai said he was very excited to be there and watch the launch live. For the launch of the Aditya-L1 Mission, India’s first solar mission, the Chief of ISRO, S Somnath, rendered prayers at Chengalamma Parameshwari Temple in Tirupati district.
The Aditya L1 satellite is constructed ,to investigate the Sun. The mission to complete the milestone will take another 125 days. The launch is significant for our country. They have not yet decided about Chandrayaan-4, but they will do so soon. Gaganyaan will premiere after Aditya L1 by the first week of October, according to Mr Somanath, as told to the media.
