- ISRO's Aditya-L1 mission kicks off its scientific data collection phase, setting a new milestone in solar research.
- The mission’s STEPS instrument activated beyond 50,000 km from Earth, collecting data on energetic particles and fields.
- Seven indigenously developed payloads on Aditya-L1 aim to study the Sun and the dynamics of space weather.
The Journey to the L1 Point
The Scientific Payloads
- Solar Observation: Four payloads will focus on studying various layers of the Sun, including the photosphere, chromosphere, and corona.
- In-Situ Studies: The remaining three payloads will perform localized observations of particles and fields at the L1 point.
STEPS: The Eye of the Mission
- Measuring ions ranging from 20 keV/nucleon to 5 MeV/nucleon
- Observing electrons exceeding 1 MeV
- Coronal mass ejections
- Pre-flare and flare activities
- Solar wind origin and behavior
