On September 2, 2023, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) achieved another milestone by launching its ambitious solar mission, Aditya-L1, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. This mission follows the recent success of Chandrayan-3, the lunar expedition. Aditya-L1 is India’s first space-based observatory focused on studying the Sun and will travel approximately 1.5 million kilometers from Earth over 125 days to reach the Lagrangian point L1, the closest point to the Sun. It will send back valuable scientific data and images of the Sun while operating in this unique orbit. The launch marks a significant achievement for ISRO in its ongoing space exploration endeavors.
