Aditya L-1 captured beautiful pictures of the moon & earth from space
Before India’s first solar mission, Aditya L-1, reaches close to the sun, ISRO has started using its cameras, and on September 4, two beautiful pictures of the earth and the moon were taken from Aditya L-1. ISRO shared these pictures with the public on Thursday. ISRO, in its post on Twitter, shared a video of the selfie taken from Aditya L-1, which shows the Velk and suit of Aditya L-1.
The mission of Aditya L-1 is to study the sun. ISRO has called it the first space-based observatory-class Indian solar mission. The spacecraft is planned to be placed in a halo orbit around Lagrangian point 1 (L1) of the Sun-Earth system, which is approximately 1.5 million km from Earth. Lagrangian points are those where all gravitational forces acting between two objects cancel each other out, and because of this, the L1 point can be used for spacecraft to fly.
Solar Mission Aditya L-1 Structure of the solar corona (the outer part of the sun’s atmosphere) and its heating process, its temperature, causes and origin of solar eruptions and solar storms, structure, velocity, and density of the corona and coronal loop plasma, It will measure the corona’s magnetic field, study the origin, evolution, and motion of coronal mass ejections (the most powerful explosions in the sun that come directly toward Earth), solar winds, and factors influencing space weather.
