ISRO Aditya L1 Mission latest update Starts Studying Solar Winds share picture more details
Aditya Solar Wind Particle Experiment (ASPEX) consists of two instruments – one is the Solar Wind Ion Spectrometer (SWIS), and the other is the Suprathermal and Energetic Particle Spectrometer (STEPS) instrument. The Suprathermal and Energetic Particle Spectrometer became operational on 10 September itself. Whereas the Solar Wind Ion Spectrometer has been activated yesterday i.e. Saturday, December 2. ISRO has said that it is also working normally. ISRO has given information by posting about this on social media

This study of Aditya L-1 is going to prove important regarding how solar winds are affecting life on Earth. Earlier, Aditya L-1 had sensed a big bang near the Sun. The 'High Energy L1 Orbiting X-ray Spectrometer' (HEL1OS) installed in the spacecraft had recorded the solar flare.
Aditya-L-1 is India's first space-based observatory. It will reach about 15 lakh kilometers away from the Earth and study the Sun. The place where Aditya L-1 will be deployed is known as the Sun-Earth's first Lagrangian point (L1). From here the sun can always be kept an eye on. 7 scientific instruments have been sent in Aditya L-1. All these equipment are made in India only. With the help of all these instruments, information about different parts of the Sun will be collected.
