On Tuesday early the ISRO announced this. The operation was carried out by the space The space agency’s Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC). ISRO shared the update on twitter that “The second Earth-bound manoeuvre (EBN#2) is performed successfully from ISTRAC, Bengaluru. ISTRAC/Isro’s ground stations at Mauritius, Bengaluru and Port Blair tracked the satellite during this operation. The new orbit attained is 282 kilometres x 40,225 km.” On September 10th around 2:30 am , the next manoeuvre will begin. Two more earth bound orbital manoeuvres are yet to be undergone by the spacecraft before placing in the transfer orbit towards Lagrange point L1 of the Sun-Earth system, which is about 1.5 million km from the Earth. For solar observation purpose ,this location provides a continuous , clear view. After about 127 days the Aditya L1 is expected to arrive at the intended orbit at the L1 point. On Sep 2 from the Sathish Dhawan space centre in Sriharikota , Aditya L1 was launched. Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) in ‘XL’ configuration is ISRO’s most reliable and versatile workhorse rocket. It carried the space craft weighing 1472 kg into space. The upper atmospheric layers of the Sun , specifically the chromosphere and corona will be studied by the Aditya L1 since that being the primary objective.
