Aditya-L1 Mission ISRO had announced the launch of the Aditya-L1 Mission he first space-based Indian observatory to study the Sun to be launched in the 1st week of September. The 1st mission was launched in the year 2015, meant to study the solar corona, where this time Aditya L1 would be the first space-based Indian mission to study the Sun, shall be placed in a halo orbit around the Lagrange point 1 (L1) of the Sun-Earth system, which is about 1.5 million km from the Earth.

It will be 1st space-based mission to study the Sun which will be placed to study an orbit around the Lagrange point 1 (L1) of the Sun-Earth system, which is about 1.5 million km from the Eart for the continuous survey of the Sun without any occultation/eclipses. Its key scientific objective is to study coronal heating, solar wind acceleration, coronal magnetometry, origin and monitoring of near-UV solar radiation and the continuous observation of the photosphere, chromosphere and corona, solar energetic particles and magnetic field of the Sun. The Aditya-L1 mission will take around 109 Earth days after launch to reach the halo orbit around the L1 point, (1,500,000 km (930,000 mi) from Earth).
