INDIA: To present various ISRO missions with an interactive interface, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has established a digital platform named the “SPARK” space museum.
The chairman of ISRO, S. Somnath, unveiled the digital space museum platform known as “SPARK.” While commemorating the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, which marks 75 years of Independence, ISRO has come up with a novel idea.
Users can easily interact with the website through the interactive interface of this digital space museum.
The space agency with headquarters in Bengaluru said in a statement that the portal “includes numerous documents, photographs & videos relating to ISRO launch vehicles, satellites and scientific missions.”
The Department of Space’s Secretary, Mr. Somanath, and the Directors of various ISRO centres praised the initiative and advised adding more “non-sensitive” digital content to the platform for usage by many stakeholders, the statement added.
You can access the beta version of the application at https:pacepark.isro.gov.in or through the ISRO website.
The Department of Space (DOS), which is directly under the Prime Minister of India, oversees the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the country’s national space agency. ISRO carries out tasks about space-based operations, exploration, and the creation of related technology.
ISRO is one of the six government space agencies in the world with full launch capability, cryogenic engine deployment, extraterrestrial mission launching, and significant fleets of man-made satellite operations.
Recently, the first small satellite launch vehicle (SSLV) of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), carrying the students’ satellite AzaadiSAT and the earth observation satellite EOS-02, didn’t go as planned on Sunday.
The SSLV-D1 failed the mission by putting the satellites in an elliptical orbit rather than a circular one, which made them “no longer usable,” as ISRO later stated in a statement.
