Aditya-L1 Mission: Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO)’s Aditya-L1 mission has achieved a significant breakthrough in solar research as it continues its journey towards its destination at Lagrange Point 1. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has given this information today on Tuesday.
ISRO has posted in this regard on its official social media platform X. ISRO said in its post that the High Energy L1 Orbiting X-ray Spectrometer (HEL1OS) has successfully recorded the impulsive phase of solar flares during its first observation period on October 29, 2023. L1 Orbiting X-ray Spectrometer is one of the seven payloads of the Aditya-L1 spacecraft.
A solar flare is a sudden intense burst of energy and radiation originating primarily in the form of X-ray and ultraviolet (UV) light from the Sun’s surface and outer atmosphere. Solar flares are caused by the release of stored magnetic energy in the Sun’s atmosphere.
Let us tell you that Aditya-L1 was launched on September 2, 2023 from Satish Dhawan Space Center, Sriharikota. The Aditya-L1 mission aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the Sun’s dynamics and its impact on Earth’s climate.
The HEL1OS instrument, developed by the Space Astronomy Group of UR Rao Satellite Centre, ISRO, Bengaluru, has been designed to monitor high-energy X-ray activity from the Sun.
