2023 can be termed as the year of interplanetary mission by the country’s space agency Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). After the mission to the Moon launched on Friday, it is the mission to the Sun for the Indian Space Agency. ISRO Its coronagraphy satellite Aditya L1 will be launched on a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV)/rocket by the end of August to study the solar atmosphere.

According to ISRO, the spacecraft will be placed in a halo orbit around L1, the first Lagrange point of the Sun-Earth system. Satellite around the L1 point has the major advantage of continuously viewing the Sun without occultation/eclipse. The Adia L1 mission will take place two days after ISRO attempted to land the lander carrying the Chandrayaan-3 probe on the lunar soil.

ISRO reached orbit on Friday Chandrayaan-3 The spacecraft uses its heavy lift rocket LVM3. ISRO Chairman S. According to Somnath, the moon lander is expected to touch down on lunar soil at 5.47 pm on August 23, and the European Space Agency (ESA) said it will provide tracking support for ISRO’s next interplanetary mission — Sun Mission Aditya L1, a solar observatory to be launched by the end of August.

Aditya-L1 is named after the Hindu sun god and future home of the spacecraft, and L1, the first Lagrange point of the Earth-Sun system. It will study several properties of coronal mass ejections, such as their dynamics and origin, the ESA added. ESA support for Aditya-L1 will include tracking operations from Kourau and Goonhilly. It will also include support from ESA’s largest antennas — three 35m deep space antennas located in New Norcia, Australia; Malargue, Argentina; and the zebras of Spain.

These stations keep ESA in communication with its evolving fleet every day solar system Explorers like JUICE, Bepicolombo and the Solar Orbiter, and space observatories like Gaia and the recently launched Euclid. They also support missions conducted by ESA’s institutional and commercial partners.
