More than 400 students from Suva had the chance to understand more about space science and astronomy after the High Commission of India utilised the presence of Team Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO)/ISTRAC), who are in the country to monitor Aditya-L1, by organizing their interaction with school students on the site.

Around 300 students from Veiuto Primary School and 150 students from Suva Grammar School visited the site where the Telemetry Tracking Center (TTC) is positioned and had interactive sessions with ISRO Scientists and Engineers in multiple batches focused on space science and astronomy.

The sessions were very useful to inspire and motivate the young Fijian students towards developing their interests in the area of science and technology.

According to the India Today, the Aditya-L1 mission, launched on September 2nd, aims to study the Sun's photosphere, chromosphere, and corona. It will also investigate the dynamics of space weather and the propagation of particles and fields.
