ISRO has announced that preparations for the launch of Aditya L1 are progressing smoothly, and everything is set for liftoff on Saturday. Will Aditya L1 land on the Sun? No. The solar probe will instead be positioned at the first Lagrange point in the Earth-Sun system. The distance to the L1 point is 1.5 million km, a span anticipated to be traversed by the spacecraft through various manoeuvres over the course of 4 months, ISRO said.
