After Landing on the Moon, Now India Will Launch a Mission to Study the Sun


 Last week, India made its own history when it became the 4th country to successfully land on the surface of the moon. Continuing the success, now the Indian Space Agency has announced that it will send the next mission named Aditya-L1.

Aditya-L1 will be launched on September 2, with a focus on studying the sun. After the launch in early September, it will take around 109 days to reach the halo orbit at a flight distance of 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. It is said that the distance is 4 times that of the moon.

For information, the distance of this spacecraft is still far from the sun, if compared to the mission that has been sent by NASA before. However, the step of sending a mission to study the sun is one of the important steps in India's aerospace arena - at the same time ahead of many other countries in the same field.

Several things are targeted to be studied and monitored by India through this mission, including coronal heating, solar wind and various things involving the sun and its effects on the solar system.
