What should your child know about the Mission Suryayaan Aditya L1?

Imagimake proudly celebrates ISRO's incredible achievement!

Finally the day has arrived and our Satellite Aditya L1 has reached the destination L1 point. The journey that we started in October is accomplished. Learn more about the mission below.

Mission Suryayaan Aditya L1

Did you know why is the mission called as Aditya L1? Aditya in Sanskrit means the Sun and L1 here refers to Lagrange Point 1 of the Sun-Earth system. Aditya L1 is the first space based Indian mission to study the Sun. The mission is aimed at studying the Sun from a unique point called the Lagrangian point L1, which is a point in space where the gravitational forces of the Earth and the Sun balance the orbital motion of a smaller object. The spacecraft is placed in a halo orbit around the L1 of the Sun-Earth system, which is about 1.5 million km from the Earth. It has the major advantage of continuously viewing the Sun without any occultation/eclipses. This provides us a greater advantage of observing the solar activities and its effect on space weather in real time. The spacecraft carries seven payloads to observe the photosphere, chromosphere and the outermost layers of the Sun (the corona) using electromagnetic and particle and magnetic field detectors. The mission is expected to provide valuable insights into solar activities and help improve our understanding of space weather.

Introducing kids to missions like Aditya-L1 can have several educational and inspirational benefits. Your child can learn about different aspects using our product Mapology Mission Suryayaan Aditya L1 and get inspired to know more India’s Space Mission and the achievements of our own country:

STEM Education: Learning about space missions like Aditya-L1 exposes children to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts. It can spark their interest in these fields and inspire them to pursue careers in science and technology.

Space Exploration and Discovery: Space missions capture the imagination and curiosity of children. They provide a real-world context for understanding scientific principles and showcase the excitement of exploration and discovery.

Understanding the Sun: The Aditya-L1 mission focuses on studying the Sun, our closest star. Teaching kids about the Sun's role in the solar system, its structure, and its impact on Earth's environment helps build a foundation for understanding celestial bodies and space phenomena.

Space Weather Awareness: Space weather, influenced by solar activities, can have implications for technology on Earth. Teaching kids about the Aditya-L1 mission and its goals helps raise awareness about space weather and its potential effects on communication systems, satellites, and power grids.

Encouraging Curiosity: Space missions often involve asking questions and seeking answers to understand the universe better. Encouraging kids to ask questions, be curious, and explore answers fosters a lifelong love of learning.

Inspiration for Future Exploration: Learning about space missions can inspire kids to dream big and consider careers in space exploration, astronomy, engineering, and other related fields. It fosters a sense of curiosity and wonder that can lead to future advancements in science and technology.

The Aditya-L1 mission represents a significant endeavor in the field of space exploration with a focus on studying the Sun. The mission's primary objectives include investigating the solar corona, understanding solar wind, and gaining insights into various solar activities. Placed at the Sun-Earth Point L1, Aditya-L1 provides a unique point for continuous observations, free from the interference of Earth's atmosphere.

The mission contributes to advancing our understanding of solar physics, enhancing space weather predictions, and providing valuable data for various scientific and practical applications. Introducing kids to missions like Aditya-L1 can foster a love for science, inspire curiosity about the universe, and encourage the development of STEM skills.


Our product Mission Suryayaan Aditya L1, has the potential to engage kids with hands-on learning, sparking their imagination and encouraging exploration. With this kit, Kids get a chance to learn how the Rockets are launched from their launch pad. Little Space Explorers can build PSLV Rocket & Aditya L1 Satellite. Once the rocket takes off to/and participate in satellite navigation by expertly guiding the magnetic satellite along the trajectory, simulating a trip to the destination.

Happy learning to you and your kids. Do read about India’s Mission to Moon as well.
