Aditya will reach the L-1 destination on January 6, ISRO chief S Somnath informed

  Ahmedabad: Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) chief S Somnath has said that India's first solar mission Aditya L-1 will reach Langregian Point (L1) on January 6. It is located 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. It was launched by ISRO on September 2 from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sri Harikota. The objective of the mission is to study the Sun from L-1. During an event, Somnath said that when he reaches the L-1 point, we will have to start the engine once again so that he can move forward. Here L-1 will get stuck. After reaching its destination, Aditya L-1 will help in obtaining information about various events taking place on the Sun for the next five years. This information will benefit not only India but the entire world. The data obtained from this will prove to be important in understanding the movement of the sun and its impact on our lives. Plan to build Indian space station Som Nath said that how India is going to become a technologically powerful country is very important. On the instructions of the Prime Minister, ISRO has planned to build an Indian space center during Amritkal, which will be called the Indian Space Station. In the space field we are seeing the arrival of new people. We are giving support and encouragement to the new generation.
