India’s mission to the Sun Aditya-L1 has left the “sphere of Earth’s influence” by travelling 9.2 lakh kilometres, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

“The spacecraft has travelled beyond a distance of 9.2 lakh kilometres from Earth, successfully escaping the sphere of Earth’s influence. It is now navigating its path towards the Sun-Earth Lagrange Point 1 (L1),” ISRO posted

“This is the second time in succession that ISRO could send a spacecraft outside the sphere of influence of the Earth, the first time being the Mars Orbiter Mission,” it said.
