Aditya-L1: ISRO gearing up to launch its first Solar mission
Chennai: The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is gearing up for the launch of Aditya-L1 Solar Exploratory mission to study the Sun.
It is going to be India's first space-based Indian observatory to study the Sun.
ISRO is expected to conduct the mission just more than a month after the launch of the lunar mission Chandrayaan-3.
ISRO will be using its reliable and workhorse launch vehicle PSLV for the Sun mission.
