Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is setting success flags one after the other. Very good news has come regarding Aditya-L1 mission.
Indian Space Agency has said that Aditya-L1 has covered a distance of more than 9.2 lakh kilometers from the Earth. It has covered this distance by successfully avoiding the Earth’s sphere of influence. It is now heading its way towards the Sun-Earth Lagrange Point 1 (L1).
This is the second consecutive time that ISRO has succeeded in sending a spacecraft outside the Earth’s sphere of influence. It did this for the first time with the Mars Orbiter Mission.
ISRO shared an update regarding Aditya-L1 mission in the evening. It said that the mission is on its track. The spacecraft has successfully escaped the Earth’s sphere of influence and covered a distance of more than 9.2 lakh kilometers. It is now finding its way towards the Sun-Earth Lagrange Point 1 (L1).
ISRO also said that this is the second consecutive time that it could send a spacecraft outside the Earth’s sphere of influence. It was successful in doing this for the first time with the Mars Orbiter Mission.
Aditya L-1 was launched on September 2 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre. L1 is a point from where the Sun can be studied 24 hours a day.
At this point, centrifugal force is created due to the balance between the earth and gravity. Because of this the spacecraft remains stable at one place.
ISRO’s morale is high after the success of Chandrayaan-3. It was only after this mission that it launched Aditya L-1.
ISRO has big plans for the future also. It is planning to study the planets outside the solar system. Recently ISRO Chief S Somnath had given information about this.
