<p>The Indian Space Research Organization is about to create history with the launch of its new mission to study the Sun after the success of its moon landing program, Chandrayaan-3. India’s first mission to study the Sun is the Aditya-L1 Solar Mission.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-155237″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-india-defeats-japan-35-1-to-go-to-the-asian-hockey-5s-world-cup-qualifying-semifinals-adityal1-mission4-1692161409081-1693538737144-11zon.png” alt=”theindiaprint.com india defeats japan 35 1 to go to the asian hockey 5s world cup qualifying semifinals adityal1 mission4 1692161409081 1693538737144 11zon” width=”1317″ height=”742″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-india-defeats-japan-35-1-to-go-to-the-asian-hockey-5s-world-cup-qualifying-semifinals-adityal1-mission4-1692161409081-1693538737144-11zon.png 600w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-india-defeats-japan-35-1-to-go-to-the-asian-hockey-5s-world-cup-qualifying-semifinals-adityal1-mission4-1692161409081-1693538737144-11zon-390×220.png 390w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-india-defeats-japan-35-1-to-go-to-the-asian-hockey-5s-world-cup-qualifying-semifinals-adityal1-mission4-1692161409081-1693538737144-11zon-150×85.png 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1317px) 100vw, 1317px” title=”The countdown to India's first solar mission, the Aditya-L1, has begun.

<p>The countdown to the mission’s launch has begun, according to ISRO Chief S Somnath, as the Aditya-L1 Solar Mission is scheduled to launch on September 2 at 11.50 a.m. from the Sriharikota spaceport.</p>
<p>The internal inspections of the rocket and the launch practice were finished, according to ISRO on Wednesday.The PSLV-C57 rocket would launch the satellite, the nation’s first observatory to study the Sun from orbit.</p>
<p>“The launch will go as planned. The satellite and rocket are prepared. We’ve finished the launch rehearsal. Therefore, we must begin the countdown for the launch the day after tomorrow tomorrow,” Somanath informed the journalists.</p>
<p>The Aditya-L1 spacecraft, according to ISRO, is intended to conduct close-up studies of the solar wind at L1 (Sun-Earth Lagrangian point), which is around 1.5 million kilometers from the Earth, as well as distant views of the solar corona.</p>
<p>Aditya-L1’s accomplishment would be another significant achievement for India after Chandrayaan-3’s success made it the first nation to land a spacecraft near the lunar south pole in August.</p>
<p>The Aditya-L1 solar mission will enter a halo orbit around one of five Lagrange points if this space program is successful. Aditya-L1 will be able to see the sun uninterrupted from there and observe how it affects the local environment around Earth and other planets in real time.</p>
<p>Cost of the ADITYA-L1 Solar Mission</p>
<p>Although ISRO has not yet provided an official estimate or update on the cost of the Aditya-L1 solar mission, in 2019 the Centre approved funding for the project that is roughly equal to $46 million.</p>
<p>The spacecraft, which will be the first Indian observatory in orbit to study the Sun, will be launched using a PSLV-C57 rocket, according to an earlier post on social media by ISRO.The Aditya-L1’s rocket, which will launch it into orbit, was also seen for the first time by the agency.</p>
