What Is Aditya L1 Solar Mission

ISRO Aditya L1 Mission Budget 

  • The Indian Space & Research Organization works on various Space Missions and recently, they have successfully finished the Chandrayaan-3 mission. 
  • Now, they are ready to launch a new mission named Aditya L1 on 2nd September 2023, and it is a Solar Mission which aims to make studies related to Gas Pattern, Coronal Heating & Solar Wind Acceleration. 
  • You should know that ISRO Aditya L1 Mission Budget is Rs 400 Crore and ISRO Started working on Aditya L1 from December 2019. 
  • The Spacecraft is ready to be launched now and Aditya L-1 Launch will take place on 2nd September 2023. 
  • Make sure you watch the Launch Event Live on the ISRO YouTube Channel, and then you will feel proud of our scientists. 

Aditya L1 Payload Details 


Name of the Payload Working
L1 Orbiting X-Ray Spectrometer  Studies the X-Ray Flares from the Sun 
Visible Emission Line Coronagraph  Studies Solar Corona and Dynamics of Coronal Mass Ejections 
Solar Ultra Violet Imaging Telescope (SUIT)  It will Image the Solar Photosphere and Chromosphere 
Aditya Solar wind Particle Experiment and Plasma Analyzer Package for Aditya  Study the Solar Wind and Ion Distribution 
Magnetometer  To Measure Inter-Planetary Magnetic Fields 


Aditya L1 Launch Vehicle 

  • The Indian Space & Research Organization will Launch the Aditya L1 Solar Mission on 2nd September 2023. 
  • The Aditya L1 Launch Vehicle is PSLV-XL, and it will carry the Spacecraft in Space.
  •  The launch site is not confirmed yet, but most probably the launch will take place at Space Center. 
  • The Launch Vehicle will carry the Spacecraft in Space and then Aditya L1 will get separated from it. 
  • Aditya L-1 is the second consecutive mission of ISRO after the launch of Chandrayaan-3. 

Aditya L1 Solar Mission : Details 

  • Check the Points below to know more about the Aditya L1 Solar Mission Details
  • Firstly, you should know that this is the 1st Solar Mission by ISRO and launch will take place on 2nd September 2023.  
  • Secondly, it carries 7 Payloads which we have mentioned above and each payload plays a vital role in the mission.  
  • Aditya L1 aims to study the Solar Wind Pattern, Energy Pattern and other important information related to the Sun.  
  • Lagrangian point 1 (L1) is the Landing Point where Aditya 1 will be placed to study the Sun Pattern.

Aditya-L1 was deployed into low-Earth orbit by the PSLV around 63 minutes after launch, as planned. After this, it underwent a Trans-Lagrangian1 insertion maneuver. The journey to L1 after launch is estimated to take around 110 days, over which time five further maneuvers will be performed to give the spacecraft the velocity needed to reach this gravitationally stable point.


When arriving at L1, Aditya-L1 will execute a further maneuver to "bind" itself to an orbit around the location. The orbit established around 127 days after launch will be irregularly shaped and will be in a plane approximately perpendicular to a line joining the sun and Earth, according to the ISRO.

The successful launch of Aditya-L1 marks the culmination of over 15 years of planning. The mission began life in January 2008 as a concept from the Advisory Committee for Space Sciences, as a small 400 kg (880 lb) satellite that would remain in a low-Earth orbit. The scale of the mission grew significantly over a decade and a half of strategizing, and it was given a new name  —  "Aditya-L1"  —  in July 2019 to reflect this growth.
