Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scientists have approved the launch of PSLV-C57 on Saturday, a major milestone in India’s space exploration. India’s first solar space observatory, It is a sunshine moment for India. Aditya-L1, is currently en route to a location 1 million kilometers away from Earth a long journey. The purpose of this journey is to undertake a special four-month mission.

Aditya-L1 – The Journey to L1:

Aditya-L1’s ultimate goal is the L1 point, a location of great importance. It sits approximately 1 million kilometers from Earth.

Scientists will use seven scientific tools at this important place to study various aspects of solar system activities. These tools will focus on studying phenomena such as coronal mass ejections and solar flares. These solar eruptions, akin to bursts of magnetic energy, can occasionally disrupt satellite signals and interfere with high-frequency radio waves.

ISRO Chairman S Somanath confirmed that the spacecraft is in the right orbit, located between 235 and 19,500 kilometers from Earth. Aditya-L1 will travel for about 125 days to reach the L1 point, after performing some maneuvers closer to Earth. We send our best wishes to the Aditya-L1 spacecraft as it starts its journey to the Halo orbit of L1.

Aditya-L1 – A Pristine View of the Sun:

Aditya-L1’s location at L1 holds strategic significance because it offers an unobstructed, constant view of the Sun. There are no eclipses or other celestial bodies obstructing its line of sight. Aditya-L1 can observe solar activities and their impact on space weather, which is important for solar science.

Aditya-L1 – The Triumph of the Launch:

Following the successful launch, Nigar Shaji, the Aditya-L1 project director, expressed her elation. She announced the deployment of the solar panels and the spacecraft’s embarkation on its 125-day journey to L1.

The spacecraft will move in space for the next four months. Its goal is to reach a special orbit around L1. It will achieve this by utilizing its liquid apogee motor.

Aditya-L1 – Attaining Specific Orbital Parameters:

The PS4 (upper stage) ignited twice about 25 minutes after PSLV’s liftoff at 11:50 am on launch day. The initial burn lasted for 30 seconds, followed by a 26-minute coasting period. Subsequently, PS4 reignited and remained active for nearly eight minutes.

The spacecraft needed the dual burn sequences to reach the correct orbit and go to its planned destination at L1.

India’s Science Minister, Jitendra Singh, praised the launch at SHAR’s mission control center as a significant achievement for India. India’s progress in space exploration impressed him. India’s progress in space exploration impressed him.

In the past nine years, India’s Space program has made significant advancements under PM Narendra Modi’s leadership. It has not only caught up with others but also surpassed them. We have also mastered the art of successful and cost-effective space missions,” he shared on social media.
