The spacecraft will be placed in a halo orbit around the Lagrange point 1 (L1), approximately 1.5 million km from Earth, providing continuous real-time observations of solar activities and space weather. Aditya L1 carries seven payloads designed to observe different layers of the Sun and study various phenomena such as the solar wind pattern, energy pattern, and the particle flux emanating from the Sun.
The data collected will contribute to a deeper understanding of space weather drivers and could revolutionise our understanding of the Sun’s dynamics.
A satellite placed in the halo orbit around the L-1 point has the major advantage of continuously viewing the Sun without any occultation or eclipse.
What will ISRO achieve?
This mission will provide a greater advantage by observing solar activities and their effect on space weather in real-time. The spacecraft shall have 7 payloads to observe the #photosphere, #chromosphere, and the #corona (outermost layers of the Sun) using #electromagnetic, particle and magnetic field detectors.
