ISRO mentioned on Saturday the Aditya-L1 spacecraft has travelled past a distance of 9.2 lakh km from Earth, efficiently escaping the sphere of Earth’s affect.
It’s now navigating its path in direction of the Solar-Earth Lagrange Level 1 (L1), the Bengaluru-headquartered nationwide house company mentioned in an announcement on X, previously Twitter.
“That is the second time in succession that ISRO may ship a spacecraft outdoors the sphere of affect of the Earth, the primary time being the Mars Orbiter Mission,” it mentioned.
The ISRO mentioned earlier this month the Aditya-L1 photo voltaic mission spacecraft has commenced gathering information which can assist scientists analyse the behaviour of particles surrounding Earth.
Information collected round L1 would offer insights into the origin, acceleration, and anisotropy of photo voltaic wind and house climate phenomena, it mentioned.
The launch of Aditya-L1 by PSLV-C57 rocket was efficiently completed by ISRO on September 2.
Aditya-L1 spacecraft carries a complete seven completely different payloads to check the Solar, 4 of which can observe the sunshine from the Solar and the remaining three will measure in-situ parameters of the plasma and magnetic fields.
Aditya-L1 will probably be positioned in a halo orbit across the Lagrangian Level 1 (L1), which is 1.5 million km from the Earth within the path of the Solar. It can revolve across the Solar with the identical relative place and therefore can see the Solar repeatedly.
