ISRO chairman A S Kiran Kumar recently said that India’s first solar mission, Aditya-1, is slated for lift-off in 2018-2019. He said that the space craft will be positioned 1.5 million kms from the earth at a point called Lagranian-1 will make a detailed study of the sun 24*7.

About Aditya-1 : The following six proposals have been short listed for the mission:

  • Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC), II A, Bengaluru.
  • Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT), IUCAA, Pune.
  • Plasma Angular Package for Aditya (PAPA), SPL/VSSC, Trivandrum.
  • Aditya Solar Wind Particle experiment(ASPEX), PRL, Ahmadabad.
  • Solar Low Energy X-ray spectrometer (SOLEXS), SAG/ISAC, Bangaluru.
  • High Energy L1 Orbiting X-Ray spectrometer (HEL1OS), SAG/ISAC, Bengaluru.

It is India’s first solar mission. It will study the sun’s outer most layer, the corona and the chromospheres and collect data about coronal mass ejection, which will also yield information for space weather prediction. 

The project cost’s approximately 400 crores and is a joint venture between ISRO and Physicists from Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bengaluru; Inter University centre for Astronomy and astrophysics, Pune; Tata Institute of Fundamental research, Mumbai and other institutes. 

The data from Aditya mission will be immensely helpful in discriminating between different models for the origin of solar storms and also for constraining how the storms evolve and what path they take through the interplanetary space from the sun to the earth.

What is process job in bihar block 

by Jitendra Sharma

Well based on the complexity of questions from constitution, Current affairs, Science and economics ....with an additional option E, it can be said that CUT O FF for General Should be around 80-82....Even many other site including VISION IAS has also speculated the cut off around 84 for General !!

 

by Surovi

ye jo log 90-92 ki baaten kar rahen unhe khud pata nahi ki what is the right answer for all question. No website has so far given correct solution for all question. I agree with surovi. Th cut off this time should go even lower than last year around 82-84 for general!!

I guess cut off this time should not exceed 85 for general category. Option Ewas very confusing.science was really the most tougest part. !!

by Bandana

at least 10-15 solutions given on the website is absolutely wrong. even most of the answers of science part are also wrongly given by VISION IAS. MY expectation for PT cut off this year should be around 84-85 for general cat. 78-81 For bc . Hardly 100-200 candidate would be able to score 90-95. so the common basis of cut off should linger around 85-82 for general Cat.
