Aditya-L1 and SUIT: Sun Mission Marvels



  Dec 19, 2023

Aditya-L1 spacecraft and SUIT



What is SUIT on Aditya-L1?

The Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT) is an instrument on India’s Aditya-L1 spacecraft, designed to study the Sun.

What did SUIT achieve recently?

SUIT captured the first full-disk images of the Sun in ultraviolet light (200-400 nm wavelength), which are invisible to the naked eye.

Why are these images important?

They offer new details about the Sun’s layers, particularly the photosphere and chromosphere, enhancing our understanding of solar dynamics.

What are Sunspots?

Sunspots are dark, cooler areas on the Sun’s surface with intense magnetic activity. SUIT’s images reveal these features in detail.

How do Sunspots affect Earth?

Sunspots can influence solar flares and coronal mass ejections, impacting space weather and sometimes Earth’s climate and communication systems.

What’s the goal of this mission?

The mission aims to deepen our knowledge of the Sun and its influence on Earth, crucial for predicting space weather and understanding climate patterns.
