The orbit of 'Aditya L1' was changed after launch. The first process was completed on September 3 and the second process on September 5. ISRO has already told that Aditya spacecraft is expected to take approximately 127 days to reach its destination.
The L1 point is 1.5 million kilometers away from the Earth, from where the Sun can always be monitored. When the mission starts its work, ISRO will be able to know solar activities in real time. Aditya Spacecraft has taken with it 7 scientific instruments. All of these are indigenous and have been prepared by various departments of India. With the help of instruments, different parts of the Sun will be studied.
