Aditya-I is India's first dedicated scientific mission to study the sun. The Aditya-1 mission was conceived as a 400kg class satellite carrying one payload, the Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC) and was planned to launch in a 800 km low earth orbit. A Satellite placed in the halo orbit around the Lagrangian point 1 (L1) of the Sun-Earth system has the major advantage of continuously viewing the Sun without any occultation/ eclipses. Therefore, the Aditya-1 mission has now been revised to “Aditya-L1 mission” and will be inserted in a halo orbit around the L1, which is 1.5 million km from the Earth. The satellite carries additional six payloads with enhanced science scope and objectives. The project is approved and the satellite will be launched during 2019 – 2020 timeframe by PSLV-XL from Sriharikota. These studies will enhance our current understanding of the Solar Corona and also provide vital data for space weather studies. This website will host information about the VELC payload.
