After a successful launch of the Moon Mission last year, India created yet another landmark. India’s first solar observatory, Aditya-L1, reaches its destination on January 6, 2024. The final phase of the maneuver involved the firing of control engines for a short duration. The orbit of the Aditya-L1 spacecraft is a periodic Halo orbit, which is located roughly 1.5 million km from earth on the continuously moving Sun-Earth line with an orbital period of about 177.86 earth days. This halo orbit is a periodic, three-dimensional orbit at L1 involving the Sun, Earth, and a spacecraft.
