Name of the Activity: – Mission Aditya L1 Exploring the Sun
Resource Person: Mr. Parag Gore (From Box of Science)

Report of the Activity

“Exploring the Sun, Illuminating Our World”.

An extensive overview of Mission Aditya L1 was presented by Mr. Gore through a visual presentation as a part of the 3 rd activity of Space and Astronomy Club. The session began with a recap about the objectives of the brief history of Solar Exploration. He explained about different ancient civilizations like Greek, Indian and Egyptian and how the Sun’s movement was connected with the observatories to study time. The session got livelier when he discussed about Copernicus, Galileo Galilei and many more Scientists. He also explained about the Contribution of SOHO instruments in understanding the Sun.

He described the following points through a power point presentation-
 NASA’s Stereo Mission to see the entire Sun and the Solar Dynamics Observatory Mission
 Ground Based Observatories
 Iris Mission to study about the atmosphere of the Sun
 Parker Solar Probe closest approach to the Sun

Through his extensive knowledge he shared the following information about Mission Aditya L1 –
 The study of solar upper atmospheric dynamics
 Magnetic field topography and measurements in the Solare Corona
 Interplanetary weather

He answered all questions posed by the students during the discussion. Following the presentation there was an insightful talk by Mr. Gore. Later students were engaged in a step wise explanation to make Aditya L1 Model. Students were then encouraged to test the model in the open area. They were thrilled to see their final product. It was an interesting and enriching activity for them.

This Club Activity on Mission Aditya L1 was a resounding success, providing students with a deeper understanding of space exploration and the vital role of missions like Aditya L1 in enhancing their understanding of the Sun and Space Weather. This activity not only expanded the students’ horizons but also inspired the budding scientists and astronomers to think about pursuing careers in Space Science.
