Bengaluru, Sep 3 (PTI) The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on Sunday said the first Earth orbit maneuver of the country’s first solar mission ‘Aditya L1’ has been successfully completed.

According to ISRO, the process was carried out from the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) located here.

The space agency also said that the “Aditya L1” satellite is fine and functioning normally.

ISRO said in a post released on microblogging site ‘X’ that the next orbital maneuver is scheduled for September 5, 2023, around 3:00 PM IST.

It read, “Aditya-L1 mission: Satellite is all right and functioning normally. First earth orbit maneuver (EBN#1) successfully carried out from ISTRAC, Bengaluru. New orbit achieved is 245 km x 22,459 km.

‘Aditya L1’ was launched from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh on Saturday.

The mission aims to study the Sun’s outer atmosphere by setting up India’s first solar observatory at the Sun-Earth ‘L1’ point.

L1 stands for ‘Lagrange Point 1’, where the spacecraft will be positioned.

After the solar panels were activated, the satellite began to generate electrical fuel.

According to ISRO, Aditya-L1 will study the Sun from a distance of about 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. This distance is about one percent of the total distance between the Earth and the Sun.

The space agency has made it clear that the spacecraft will neither land on the sun nor go closer to the sun.
