Finally, the landing date of the Aditya L1 spacecraft at Lagrange Point 1 has been announced. This is one of the biggest missions of ISRO after the successful landing of Chandrayan 3. Now India is on the way to go to the sun for research and study. Now Chief S Somnath has revealed the timing of the landing of the Aditya L1 spacecraft. Somnath is the chief of ISRO. This has been announced today. Since the timings have been announced people have been curious to know about it and now people want to know more about this mission. So we are here to tell you everything about this biggest mission. Now read to know everything regarding this mission.
On 15th October 2023, Sunday, the Cheif of the Indian Space and Research Organisation (ISRO), S Somnath officially announced that the Aditya-L1 spacecraft, The first Indian solar mission is going to reach art the Lagrange Pint (L1) in mid of January. The official date hasn’t been declared yet but it is going to be land in between January 2024. The mission Aditya L1 is going to reach its destination after a journey of 110 days from Earth. This is great news for the entire India. Scroll down to know further details.
It has been reported that the mission is going to take around 110 days to travel from Earth to the L1 point. Which means it is going to reach its destination in mid-January 2023. Then at that destination, India is going to do the insertion into the Lagrange point which is known as the “halo orbit”, this is the biggest orbit. As per the reports, the Aditya-L1 mission was successfully launched on 2nd September 2023 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. This mission was launched after the successful landing of Chandrayaan 3 at the South Pole of the moon.
According to the source, the Aditya L1 spacecraft carries a total of seven distinct payloads which are designed to conduct the comprehensive study of the sun. Four instruments are going to observe the sunlight and the other three instruments are going to measure the situ parameters of the plasma and it is also going to measure the magnetic fields. It is going to take place in the halo orbit around the Lagrangian Point which is located at around 1.5 million km away from the Earth. It is going to take approximately four months to cover the entire distance. More information to be shared soon.
