Aditya-L1 Launch: India’s Inaugural Solar Observatory Mission Takes Flight

On a historic day, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) successfully launched the Aditya L-1 mission, marking a major achievement in India’s space exploration efforts. This mission, India’s first solar observatory, aims to uncover the mysteries of our nearest star, the Sun.

ISRO’s Aditya-L1 Launch: India’s Solar Odyssey Begins

The launch took place at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. A team of scientists and engineers from ISRO conducted it. They carefully planned and executed the launch. The countdown, which lasted 23 hours and 40 minutes, culminated in the momentous liftoff.

The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), a reliable workhorse in ISRO’s fleet, transported Aditya-L1 into space. Approximately 63 minutes after liftoff, the satellite separation took place, propelling the Aditya-L1 spacecraft into a highly eccentric orbit around Earth.

This mission, designated as PSLV-C57/Aditya-L1, stands as one of ISRO’s longest missions involving its dependable launch vehicle. The 2016 PSLV-C35 mission holds the record for the longest PSLV mission. It finished its journey 2 hours, 15 minutes, and 33 seconds after liftoff.

This is also marking the 25th flight of the PSLV-XL variant, is far from complete. Following the launch, Aditya L-1 will spend 16 days in Earth-bound orbits. During this time, it will go through five maneuvers to gain the speed needed for its upcoming journey into space.

Once positioned, Aditya-L1 will reside approximately 1.5 million kilometers away from Earth, with its focus directed toward the Sun. This special spot is about 1% of the way from Earth to the Sun. It’s a great place to study the Sun and learn more about our solar system.

This mission is a big step for India’s space exploration. It will give us important information about the Sun and how it affects Earth.

ISRO began a countdown of 23 hours and 40 minutes on Friday. The countdown is for the launch of India’s first solar observatory mission, Aditya-L1. The mission will launch today at 11:50 am.

It will launch from Sriharikota on saturday. The launch will use the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). The launch will take place at the Satish Dhawan Space Center.

The PSLV will separate the satellite and send the Aditya-L1 spacecraft into orbit around Earth. This will happen around 63 minutes after launch and at 12:53 pm. The orbit will be very oval-shaped.

This mission, known as PSLV-C57/Aditya L-1, ranks among the longest missions involving ISRO’s reliable launch vehicle. The longest PSLV mission was in 2016, called PSLV-C35. It ended 2 hours, 15 minutes, and 33 seconds after it started.

The mission Aditya-L1 signifies the 25th launch of the PSLV-XL version. After its launch, Aditya-L1 will stay in orbits around the Earth for 16 days. During this period, it will perform five maneuvers to achieve the required speed for its voyage.


Aditya L-1 Positioning

Aditya L1 will position itself approximately 1.5 million km (kilometers) from Earth, with its orientation directed toward the Sun. This distance is equivalent to about 1% of the separation between Earth and the Sun.
