At IIT-BHU, a workshop on India’s first solar mission, the ‘Aditya L1’ satellite, has begun. According to the workshop, ISRO will launch the ‘Aditya L1’ satellite by the end of December. This will reveal the sun’s hidden secrets. Many IIT-BHU astronomers are also involved in the ‘Aditya L1’ satellite mission project. Scientists at IIT BHU have previously designed a number of satellite devices.

India’s first mission to study the Sun has been pushed back to the end of 2023. The mission will now be launched by ISRO in December rather than mid-2023, according to the ongoing Aditya L-1 workshop being held at IIT BHU, Varanasi from February 25-27. Aditya-L1 is a solar mission that will study the Sun’s lesser-known properties such as Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and solar winds, which affect overall space weather.

The Aditya L1 Support Cell (AL1SC) workshop at IIT BHU was organised “to train and prepare students to understand the physics of the Sun and heliosphere, as well as to analyse and interpret data from different instruments in Aditya-L1,” the institution said in a statement. “In the workshop hands-on sessions, sample data from other satellites will be used to introduce the tools and methodology of analysis and interpretation.”

 

Aditya L1 is India’s first space-based observatory-class solar mission designed to study the Sun. The spacecraft will be placed in a halo orbit around the Sun-Earth system’s Lagrangian point 1 (L1), which is approximately 1.5 million kilometres away from Earth.

The Aditya-L1 mission carries seven scientific payloads to conduct a comprehensive study of the Sun. This suite of Aditya L1 payloads is expected to provide critical information for understanding the problems of coronal heating, Coronal Mass Ejection, pre-flare and flare activities, and their characteristics, space weather dynamics, particle propagation, and fields in the interplanetary medium, and so on.
