India’s space exploration journey is set to reach a new height with the scheduled launch of its first-ever space-based sun observatory on September 2.

Named Aditya-L1, the sun probe is gearing up for a significant mission—to investigate solar winds. Which can induce disturbances on Earth and manifest as captivating “auroras.”

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) elaborated that the journey of the spacecraft to the L-1 point is project to span roughly four months.

This is exemplified by its recent lunar exploration venture, which operated within a budget of around $75 million.
