ISRO all set to launch first Sun mission

Close on the heels of successful Chandrayaan mission, India is ready with the first Sun Mission “Aditya-L1”, which ISRO is all set to launch, most likely on 2nd of September.

The Sun Space Mission Aditya-L1 shall use the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) with seven payloads (Instruments on Board).  The spacecraft shall be based in a halo orbit around Lagrange point-1(L1) of the Sun-Earth system, which is about 15 lakh kilometre from the Earth, while a satellite placed in the halo orbit will have the major advantage of continuously viewing the Sun without any eclipses, he added.
