The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Monday announced that Aditya-L1- India’s first space-based observatory to study the Sun- will be launched on Saturday (September 2) at 11.50 a.m. from Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota.
Reacting to the launch announcement, former ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan told the media, “It is a study project, they’re going to study (Sun) at a distance of 15 lakhs kilometers…it is a good project.”
The Aditya-L1 mission will be launched by ISRO’s PSLV XL rocket from Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR (SDSC-SHAR), Sriharikota. Initially, the spacecraft will be placed in a Low Earth Orbit. Subsequently, the orbit will be made more elliptical, and later the spacecraft will be launched towards the Lagrange point (L1) by using onboard propulsion.
As the spacecraft travels towards L1, it will exit the Earth’s gravitational Sphere of Influence (SOI). After exit from SOI, the cruise phase will start and subsequently, the spacecraft will be injected into a large halo orbit around L1. The total travel time from launch to L1 would take about four months for Aditya-L1.
