Aditya-L1 Spacecraft Captures Spectacular Selfie with Earth and Moon

Date: July 26, 2023 BANGALORE, India - In a remarkable feat of technology and space exploration, the Aditya-L1 spacecraft, launched by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), has turned the cameras back on itself and captured a stunning selfie featuring the Earth and the Moon. This historic moment, which showcases India's growing prowess in space research, was announced by ISRO on Thursday. The Aditya-L1 spacecraft, named after the Hindu sun god 'Aditya,' was launched on December 11, 2021, with the primary mission of studying the Sun. Positioned at the L1 Lagrangian point, which is approximately 1.5 million kilometers away from Earth, it is the ideal vantage point for observing the Sun without the hindrance of Earth's atmosphere. The spacecraft's main objective is to monitor solar activities, study the Sun's outermost layer (the corona), and understand the processes that drive the solar cycle. The unexpected selfie, however, was not part of the mission
