Aditya-L1 has lifted off from the Sathish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 11:50 IST today, 2nd September 2023, as per schedule. Aditya-L1 Mission is the first observatory-class space-based solar mission from India. Aditya-L1 Mission is to conduct more studies on our Sun, which is the nearest and the largest object in the Solar System. Distanced at about 150 million Kilometres from the Earth, the Sun is the source of energy for our Solar system. According to the sources from the Control Centre, all the stages have worked successfully and the performance of the vehicle is normal. Later ISRO Confirmed that the Aditya-L1 has been successfully placed into the required orbit.
A PSLV-C57 Rocket has carried the Aditya-L1 spacecraft and will be put into a Halo Orbit around the Lagrangian Point-1 (L1) of the Sun-Earth System in about 4 months time. It is at about 1.5 million Kilometres from the Earth. The spacecraft carries seven Payloads to observe the Photosphere, Chromosphere and the outermost layers of Sun (the Corona). This is done using Electromagnetic and Particle Detectors. Four of the seven Payloads in Aditya-L1 directly view the Sun and the remaining three Payloads carry out in-situ studies of Particles and Fields at the Lagrange Point L1.
Atyutka congratulates India, ISRO and all the people worked directly or indirectly with the Aditya-L1 Mission on its successful launch.
