ISROs solar exploration takes a leap forward as Aditya-L1 leaves Earths orbit

Bengaluru: The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has achieved another milestone as its Aditya-L1 spacecraft successfully departed Earth's orbit on Tuesday. It is now en route to Lagrange Point 1, where it will embark on a mission to continuously study the sun.

The spacecraft will follow its designated trajectory for 110 days before entering orbit around Lagrange Point 1, which is situated approximately 1.5 million kilometres from Earth. Lagrange Points are gravitational "parking lots" between celestial bodies, reducing fuel consumption by allowing objects to remain in stable positions.

This marks ISRO's fifth consecutive success in transferring an object toward another celestial body or location in space. The agency's ground-breaking achievement occurred shortly after it became the first to land a spacecraft near the moon's south pole.

The Aditya-L1 mission holds critical objectives, primarily centred on understanding the mysteries of coronal heating and investigating solar winds, which have the potential to disrupt Earth's magnetic field and communication systems.

ISRO's remarkable progress in space exploration reaffirms its dedication to expanding our understanding of the universe and safeguarding our planet from the impacts of solar activity.
