Aditya L1 Launch Live Updates: ISRO on Sunday said it has successfully performed the first earth-bound manoeuvre of the country's maiden solar mission, Aditya L1, from ISTRAC here. The space agency also said the satellite is healthy and operating nominally. The next manoeuvre is scheduled for September 5, 2023, around 03:00 Hrs.

ISRO's spacecraft succesfully launched from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota on Saturday. With this, India inched one step closer for the completion of its maiden Solar expedition. ISRO's trusted PSLV will carry the Aditya L1 mission on a 125-day voyage to the Sun. 

The Aditya L1 spacecraft will stay in Earth's orbit for sixteen days. After four months of journey, the satellite will be placed on the L1 point in the halo orbit around the Sun. 

Aditya L1 launched successfully from Satish Dhawan Space Cenre in Sriharikota on Saturday. The launch was declared successful after the satellite was placed into Earth's elliptical orbit. Now, the space agency will perform orbit raising exercise within fixed duration. The first orbit raising exercise will be performed on Sunday.

Aditya L1 is designed to provide remote observations of the Solar corona and conduct in-situ observations of the Solar wind at L1 (Sun-Earth Lagrangian point), which is about 1.5 million kilometres from the Earth.
