Following the successful Chandrayaan-3 lunar mission, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is launching its next ambitious project, the Aditya L1 solar mission.
This mission, scheduled to launch on September 2nd at 11:50 a.m. from the Sriharikota spaceport in Andhra Pradesh, represents a huge step forward in India's space exploration quest.
According to , the Aditya L1 mission is India's first foray into space-based solar observation. Its major goal is to offer remote observations of the solar corona as well as in situ solar wind measurements at the L1 point, which is strategically located approximately 1.5 million kilometers from Earth.
The clear view of the Sun, free of eclipses, is a significant advantage of Aditya L1's location, permitting continuous monitoring of solar events and their immediate effects on space weather.
The spacecraft will launch from Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, at 11:50 a.m. IST on September 2nd. Individuals willing to watch this event are excited, and has created accommodations for easy access to the experience.
ISRO has scheduled a live stream of the launch beginning at 11:20 a.m. on several social media platforms. Fans can watch the live broadcast on media such as Facebook and YouTube.
Viewers can participate in this historic moment using smartphones, televisions, or laptops.
ISRO's official website will host the live streaming at
Additionally, the launch will be available on Facebook via

Furthermore, DD National will also broadcast the event live, providing yet another option for those eager to follow along.
Aditya L1 has seven payloads precisely built to observe various aspects of the Sun, including the photosphere, chromosphere, and corona - the outermost layer. Electromagnetic particle and magnetic field detectors aid in this finding.
Because of this mission's unique positioning at the L1 point, four payloads can directly see the Sun. The remaining three payloads conduct in-depth investigations of particles and fields at this Lagrange point.
These scientific equipment are poised to illuminate phenomena such as coronal heating, coronal mass ejections, flare activity, space weather dynamics, and particle and field transmission throughout the interplanetary medium.
The Aditya L1 solar mission marks a key milestone in India's space exploration history, with enthusiasts worldwide witnessing it via extensive live-streaming choices.
