India's Aditya L1 mission to study the Sun, CME, solar flares and more

Know all about India’s first space-based solar mission called Aditya L1. The PSLV-C57 is getting ready to launch soon, says ISRO. It will give insights into thw working of the Sun, what generates solar storms like coronal heating, coronal mass ejections, solar flares, and more.

Solar prominence
The mission’s name is Sun's nucleus, Aditya-L1 looks forward to providing unmatched insights into the Sun's actions. Its method involves placing itself within a halo orbit encircling the Sun-Earth system's Lagrange point 1 (L1), which is approximately 1.5 million kilometres distant from Earth. (NASA)

Solar flare released from the Sun
The spacecraft will contain seven advanced payloads that are designed to study different layers of the Sun including the photosphere and chromosphere to the outermost layer, the corona. These payloads have electromagnetic, particle and magnetic field detectors. (NASA/SDO)
