Announcing the completion of the launch rehearsal and internal rocket inspections on Wednesday, ISRO provided an update on its Aditya-L1 mission to study the Sun. Aditya-L1 photos are also shared by ISRO on their official website.
The first solar mission for India, Aditya-L1, will launch this week from the Sriharikota spaceport, according to the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Aditya-L1 is the first Indian observatory to study the Sun from space, according to the space agency.
A rocket called the PSLV-C57 will be used to launch the spacecraft. Aditya-L1 will launch on September 2, 2022, at 11:50 a.m. (IST).

About Aditya L1 Mission
The first Indian mission to study the Sun in space will be Aditya L1. However, the spacecraft will be positioned in a halo orbit around the Lagrange point 1 (L1) of the Sun-Earth system, which is around 1.5 million kilometers from Earth, according to the ISRO. Moreover, the solar corona can be observed remotely, and the solar wind can be observed in real-time at L1.
According to ISRO, the main benefit of having a satellite in the halo orbit around the L1 point is the ability to watch the Sun continually without being obscured by clouds or eclipses.
Further, Lagrange Points are areas of space where the Sun and the Earth’s gravitational pull produce stronger zones of attraction and repulsion. According to NASA, they can be utilized by spacecraft to lower the amount of fuel needed to maintain orbit. Furthermore, Josephy-Louis Lagrange, an Italian-French mathematician, is honored by the moniker “Lagrange point.”
