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.

As per the Polyeyes prediction, the difference of marks between UR and SC is very small .A gap ofonly 10 marks or 5 questions.In the 5th JPSC PT exam,his gap was of 34 marks or 17 questions without any change in SC seats and number of candidates appeared.

Cut off for UR should be 190-204 marks.
