Aditya-L1 to study solar storms that destroyed Space X satellites. What is Elon Musk’s Solar mission connection? | Space


In 2022, a geomagnetic storm triggered by a large burst of radiation from the sun disabled at least 40 of the 49 satellites launched by Elon Musk’s SpaceX. Such explosions on the sun emitted huge amounts of energy that also affected GPS coordinates and radio transmissions on the Earth.

It is pertinent to mention that these mass ejections will be studied by the primary payload of the Indian Space Research Organisation’s Aditya-L1 mission, called Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC), according to a report published by MoneyControl. 

In an exclusive interview with MoneyControl, IIA Director Annapurni Subramaniam said the question that arises here is how the sun affects things in space as people are highly dependent on space technology.

“You must know that Musk’s Starlink satellites were disrupted last year. This is happening because the sun is becoming active now. Hence, such things happen,” Subramaniam told MoneyControl. 

ISRO is set to launch the solar mission, Aditya-L1 today following the successful Chandrayaan-3 lunar mission. Chandrayaan-3’s Vikram lander soft landed on the south pole of the Moon less than two weeks ago.

The Aditya-L1 mission is scheduled for liftoff at 11:50 am on September 2, 2023, from the second launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

The mission is expected to take 125 days to reach its intended…
