One day after the Chandrayaan-3 mission’s successful Moon landing, the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is preparing to launch its next significant mission, the Aditya-L1.
The Aditya-L1 mission, which aims to study the Sun, is scheduled to launch next month, according to Isro chief S Somanath.
“I cannot tell you the type of excitement that is in India today for this mission. I want to thank everyone in the nation. The mission is dedicated to you,” said Somanath, reflecting the significance of the Chandrayaan-3 landing.
India’s ambitious effort to study the Sun, a celestial planet that has long attracted scientists and space enthusiasts, is represented by the Aditya-L1 mission. Isro has been painstakingly organising and getting ready for this mission, and it is now moving into the integration phase.
“Everything is going as per plan. It will take 120 days to reach its destination, nearly 15 lakh kilometres away from Earth,” Somnath said.
The Gaganyaan abort mission demonstration will be the following mission after that. According to Chief Somnath, it can occur at the end of September or in the first week of October. This mission, which is an important turning point in the Gaganyaan programme, will demonstrate Isro’s readiness for manned spaceflight.
