Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope

News: The Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT), developed by Pune's Inter-University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), has been delivered to the ISRO.

About:
• It aims to study the Sun’s ultraviolet (UV) emissions and capture high-resolution images of the Sun’s atmosphere, known as the corona, in various UV wavelengths.
• It will observe the hotter and more dynamic regions of the Sun’s atmosphere, such as the transition region and the corona.
• It will be integrated with ISRO's ADITYA-L1 mission, set to launch in mid-August 2023.
• It will monitor the Sun’s activity and provide early warning of potential solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs), which can affect satellites, communication systems, power grids and human health on Earth.
