ISRO planning to send a probe to study sun early next year

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is planning to send a probe to study the sun in 2020.

Indian scientists are exploring possibilities to study more about Sun and the probe named Aditya-L1 will be sent to observe the solar corona, the outer layers of the Sun.

The satellite would be send in a halo orbit around the L1 (Lagrangian point 1) of the Sun-Earth system so that it has the advantage of continuously viewing the Sun without any occultation or eclipses.

The L1 is 1.5 million kms from the Earth.

This will be ISRO’s maiden mission to study the sun.

ISRO is making all-out efforts to launch Chandrayaan-2 in the launch window between July 9 and 16, with the aim of its lander soft landing near the south pole of the moon by September 6th.

Lagrange Points

A Lagrange point is a location in space where the combined gravitional forces of two larger bodies, such as Earth and the Sun or Earth and Moon, equal the centrifugal force felt by a much smaller third body.

The interaction of forces creates a point of equilibrium where a spacecraft may be parked to make observations.
