New Delhi: The solar mission of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has been a major success. The ‘Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope’ (SUIT) mounted on ISRO’s spacecraft Aditya L-1 has sent colorful pictures of the Sun. This telescope took these pictures of the Sun on December 6.

Took full disc photos for the first time

It was informed by ISRO that the Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope has taken full disk pictures of the Sun for the first time. These pictures are of 200 to 400 nanometer wavelength. In this the sun is visible in 11 different colours. ISRO has released these pictures.

SUIT payload launched on 20 November 2023

Let us tell you that the SUIT payload of Aditya L-1 was switched on on 20 November 2023. This telescope has taken pictures of the Sun’s surface photosphere and chromosphere. Chromosphere is the thin layer present between the sun’s surface and the outer atmospheric corona. This layer is 2 thousand km above the surface of the sun. With the help of these photographs, scientists will be able to study the sun properly.

The process of entering L1 point will be completed on January 7, 2024

Let us tell you that ISRO’s ‘Aditya L1’ spacecraft is nearing its final stage and the process of entering the L1 point is expected to be completed by January 7, 2024. Final preparations for the spacecraft’s entry into the L1 point are progressing steadily. ‘Aditya L1’ was successfully launched on September 2 from the Satish Dhawan Space Center (SDSC) in Sriharikota. According to ISRO, ‘Aditya-L1’ is the first space-based observatory to study the Sun.

Travel of approximately 15 lakh kilometers

The spacecraft will enter a halo orbit around the Lagrangian point ‘L1’ after traveling about 1.5 million kilometers from Earth in 125 days. The ‘L1’ point is considered closest to the Sun. ‘Aditya L1’ will conduct various types of scientific studies to know the secrets of the Sun and will also send its pictures to Earth for analysis.
