Objectives: Aditya-L1 mission is dedicated to comprehensively studying the Sun. With seven distinct payloads, including contributions from academic institutions, the satellite will investigate coronal heating, solar wind acceleration, coronal mass ejections (CMEs), solar atmosphere dynamics, and temperature anisotropy. Positioned in an irregular orbit around L1, Aditya-L1 marks India's foray into understanding solar activities and their impact on space weather. (Pixabay)
