President Droupadi Murmu on Saturday congratulated scientists and engineers at ISRO for the successful launch of its maiden Solar Mission Aditya-L1.
“The launch of Aditya-L1, India’s first solar mission, is a landmark achievement that takes India’s indigenous space programme to a new trajectory. It will help us better understand space and celestial phenomena. I congratulate the scientists and engineers at @isro for this exceptional feat. My best wishes for the success of the mission,” she Xed.
Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah also congratulated ISRO for its successful launch of Aditya-L1 by saying it is a great milestone achieved by ISRO and a proud moment for India.
“Heartiest congratulations to @isro for the successful launch of solar observatory mission #AdityaL1. This is a great milestone achieved by ISRO and a proud moment for India #ISROSolarMission,” he said.
Publishing a long post on X, AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge said that India is indebted and grateful to the scientists, space engineers and researches.
“तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय – Lead me from darkness to light We are indebted and grateful to our scientists, space engineers, researchers and our hard-working personnel at @ISRO for the successful launch of #AdityaL1 – Solar Observation Mission,” he said.
“Together, we celebrate their success and honour them with our gratitude,” Kharge added.
The European Space Agency (ESA) today congratulated the successful launch of India’s first Solar Mission Aditya-L1.
“To the stars! Well, one very special star in particular,” ESA Xed.
ESA is supporting the ISRO’s solar mission. It is contributing to Aditya-L1 in two key capacities. It is furnishing deep space communication services vital for the mission and collaborating with ISRO on the validation of critical new flight dynamics software.
Earlier, ISRO confirmed the successful launch of Aditya-L1 mission which will study the Sun from L1 point in the orbit. It will make attempts to investigate solar winds, a phenomenon known to trigger terrestrial disturbances manifesting as auroras.
This success comes soon after ISRO successfully launched Chandrayaan-3 on the South Pole of the Moon.
India’s Chandrayaan-3 outclassed Russia’s potent Luna-25 by achieving a flawless soft-landing.
The Aditya-L1 spacecraft has been meticulously engineered for a four-month voyage spanning approximately 1.5 million kilometers (930,000 miles).
It will navigate to a region in space often referred to as a gravitational equilibrium point, where celestial objects tend to remain stationary due to the delicate balance of gravitational forces. This strategic positioning minimizes the spacecraft’s fuel consumption, optimizing its efficiency.
