Indian Space Research Organization is scheduled to launch a PSLV-XL rocket as part of the Aditya-L1 mission. The launch window for the Heliophysics mission is on June 1, 2020 00:00:00 UTC from Satish Dhawan Space Centre First Launch Pad. Don’t miss this exciting rocket launch! Watch the launch video of the PSLV-XL and experience the excitement for yourself.
Aditya L1 is an Indian solar observation satellite to be placed at the Sun-Earth Lagrangian point L1.
The major scientific objectives of the mission are to achieve a fundamental understanding of the physical processes that heat the solar corona, accelerate the solar wind and produce Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs).
Originally the mission design started as a small LEO satellite carrying only a coronagraph as a payload. In order to get the best science from the Sun, continuous viewing of the Sun is preferred. A Satellite placed in the halo orbit around the L1 Lagrangian point of the Sun-Earth system has the major advantage of continuously viewing the Sun without any occultation/ eclipses.
