Aditya L1 Launch LIVE Updates: India will launch its first Sun mission ‘Aditya L-1’ today, days after Chandrayaan-3’s successful moon landing. The launch will be done from ISRO’s rocket PSLV. The Surya mission will be launched from the second launch pad from Sriharikota at 11.50 am today. The mission aims to study the Sun from a vantage point at the Sun-Earth Lagrangian point (L1), about 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. It will cover a journey of about 125 days. The Aditya L1 mission will play an essential role in solar phenomena including coronal heating, coronal mass ejection (CME), pre-flare and flare activities. There will be seven payloads in this mission. It will transmit data to Earth, with the Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC) being the most important payload. It will send about 1,440 different pictures of the Sun daily.

Aditya L1 Launch LIVE Updates:

Will be live-streamed at BM Birla Planetarium in Hyderabad

The launch of the country’s first solar mission – Aditya-L1 – will be telecast live at the B M Birla Planetarium in the city on Saturday, an official said. Citizens will get to watch the live streaming of the launch of Aditya-L1 at BM Birla Planetarium on Saturday. KG Kumar, director of BM Birla Science Center and Planetarium, said on Friday that a science talk on ‘Sun and Aditya-L1 Mission’ will also be organised.

Havan for the success of the mission

For the successful launch of ISRO’s Aditya L1 mission from Sriharikota, priests in Varanasi performed Havan with Surya Namaskar and special prayers at Doon Yoga Peeth centers in the presence of spiritual leader Acharya Bipin Joshi.

Challenge for ISRO in Aditya L-1 mission

One of the main challenges facing ISRO in its first solar mission is its VELC payload. The Visible Emission Line Coronagraph or VELC was tested and calibrated at the CREST campus of the Indian Institute of Astrophysics in Hosakote in collaboration with ISRO. Due to its size and technical characteristics it proved to be a challenging task for ISRO.
