It is designed to study the Sun's Corona, the outmost layer of the Sun's Atmosphere.

The mission will be placed in a halo orbit around the Sun-Earth Lagrange point 1 (L1), which is a point in space where the gravitational forces of the Sun and Earth balance each other.

Aditya L1 will carry a suite of instruments to study the Sun's corona, including a telescope, a spectrometer, and a coronagraph.

The total cost of the mission is estimated to be ₹1,000 crore (US$130 million).

 The mission is led by the Space Science and Technology Centre (SSTC) in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

Aditya L1 will cover 1.5 million kilometers from the Earth, about 4 times farther than the Moon.

The Aditya L1 mission is a major milestone for the Indian space program and will help us to better understand the Sun, which is essential for life on Earth.
