After the space missions to the moon, Indians will launch the first spacecraft towards the sun
The Indian Space Research Organization has announced that on September 2 they will launch the first mission to the Sun. The Sun-bound spacecraft is slated to travel 1.5 million miles to study the solar wind, which could affect astronauts and technology.
Aditya-L1 will be positioned around the Lagrangian point 1 (L1) of the Sun-Earth system, allowing the spacecraft to observe the Sun at all times. L1 is a region in space where the gravity of the sun and the earth balance each other.
The space zone is also the orbit of NASA and ESA's Solar and Heliosphere Observatory, which has been in that space since 1996. This mission is valued at about $1.27 billion.
