The boundary between the Sun's interior and the solar atmosphere is called the photosphere. The lower region of the solar atmosphere is called the chromosphere. Its name comes from the Greek root chroma (meaning color), for it appears bright red when viewed during a solar eclipse.

While talking exclusively to LatestLY correspondent, an ISRO scientist said that most of the components of Gaganyaan will be made under 'Make in India' initiative launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The scientist further elaborated that the target is to launch the Gaganyaan by 2022. However, ISRO will look to launch it before that date, said another scientist.

The Indian Space Research Organisation wants to make the ambitious manned mission Gaganyaan “more and more” indigenous by utilising the facilities available in the country, ISRO Chairman K Sivan had said earlier in an event.

As part of the exhibition, experts will also deliver lectures. The exhibition aims to attract kids and school going children towards science and space studies.

On December 19, the Indian Space Research Organisation successfully launched communication satellite GSAT-7A on-board GSLV-F11 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh at 4:10 pm. The satellite is expected to boost the communication capabilities of our armed forces and has a lifespan of eight years.
