After the successful launch of Chandrayaan-2, ISRO now plans to launch solar mission 'Aditya-L1' in 2020. Aditya-L1 is meant to observe the Sun's corona, which are the outer layers of the Sun and gives an analysis of the coronas as it has a major impact on climate change. ISRO states 'how the corona gets heated to such high temperatures is still an unanswered question in solar physics' in its website.
