Aditya L1 Mission, Launch Date, Time, Budget, Aditya-L1 mission will be launched by ISRO on 2nd September 2023: Welcome to this refreshing article. The successful launch of India’s third lunar spacecraft, Chandrayan 3 on the south polar region of the moon has been the most crucial achievement of the Indian Space and Research Organization (ISRO). It created a new history in itself. Now, they are all set for a new mission that is Aditya L1, the first solar mission which is expected to launch from Sriharikota on September 2nd, 2023 by ISRO at 11:50 Hrs IST (Monday). Now, this section has informed about the Aditya L1 Mission, Launch Date, Time, And Budget.

What is the purpose of launching Aditya – L1?
Through this launch, they want to reach the Lagrangian Point(L1) of the sun, the Earth, and the solar system. The main purpose of AdityaL1 is the careful study of the weather in space and gases in the sun. Aditya L1 is also known as PSLV-C57. This study would open new dimensions for scientists to view the center of the solar system and dive into the deep insights.
Aditya L1 Payload
|Name of the Payload||Working|
|L1 Orbiting X-Ray Spectrometer||Studies the X-Ray Flares from the Sun|
|Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC)||Studies Solar Corona and Dynamics of Coronal Mass Ejections|
|Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT)||It will Image the Solar Photosphere and Chromosphere|
|Aditya Solar Wind Particle Experiment and Plasma Analyser Package for Aditya||Study the Solar Wind and Ion Distribution|
|Magnetometer||To Measure Inter-Planetary Magnetic Fields|
Working of Aditya L1
Now we will understand the different aspects of spacecraft and how it will work. Firstly, this spacecraft is carefully seated in a halo orbit around the Lagrangian point (L1) of the natural system of the sun and Earth. This would be around 1.5 million Km ( approximately) from Earth. Interestingly, before this seating arrangement, it was decided that a 400 Kg class satellite would carry one payload and due to this, the visible Emission line Coronagraph (VELC) could be launched in a low earth orbit at 800 km. But this is not the case now. As you already know, when the satellite is placed in the halo orbit around the first Lagrangian Point (L1). Now why are we doing this?
The answer to this question is very simple. By doing this technique we are at an advantage as we can view the sun without any spatial interference. It is important to note here that the Aditya-1 mission was renamed as the Aditya L1 mission. One more question arises; What does Lagrangian Point mean? You know layman may not understand these scientific terminologies so in this article we are here to explain you. Lagrangian Point is a terminology that signifies a spot in space from where the force of gravity of the nearest celestial entities cancel each other and help the object that is present in the equilibrium.
More details about Aditya L1
After the general overview, dates and time of launch, and the working of Aditya L1; We will brief you about the instruments. Aditya L1 observes the solar system which also includes the two outermost layers of stars that is chromosphere and corona. So these instruments observe this environment and carry net remote sensing and observation. Seven payloads are carried by the Aditya-L1 spacecraft, which includes the Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC), Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT), High Energy L1 Orbiting X-ray Spectrometer (HEL1OS).
These are remote sensing payloads; the Aditya Solar Wind Particle Experiment (ASPEX), Plasma Analyser Package for Aditya (PAPA), and Advanced Tri-axial High and Advanced Tri-axial High Resolution Digital Magnetometer. These are in-situ payloads to observe the photosphere, chromosphere, and the outermost layers of the sun ( the corona) using electromagnetic particle and magnetic field detectors.

Objectives Of Aditya L1 Mission
- To study the solar upper atmospheric (chromosphere and corona)dynamics
- To study the chromospheric and coronal heating.
- To study the physics of the partially ionized plasma invitation of the coronal mass ejections and flares.
- To observe the in-situ particle and plasma environment providing data for the study of particle dynamics from the sun.
- To study the physics of solar corona and its mecha. Nism.
- To study diagnostics of the coronal and coronal loops of plasma. It’s temperature, velocity, and density.
- To analyze the magnetic field rupes and magnetic field measurements in the solar corona along with the drivers of space weather.
The mission document was released in July. ISRO reports mentioned that the suits of Aditya L1 payloads would help us in understanding the problem of corporal heating, coronal mass ejection, pre-flare and flare activities, and their characteristics, dynamics of space weather, and the propagation of particles and fields.
