The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has launched a digital platform called the ‘SPARK’ space museum for showcasing several ISRO missions with an interactive interface. The digital platform known as the ‘SPARK’ space museum was launched by the Chairman of ISRO, S Somnath. This idea by ISRO is a new initiative while celebrating the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav marking 75 years of Independence.
- This digital space museum ‘SPARK’ has an interactive interface through which users can interact with the site easily.
- The platform hosts several documents, images, and videos related to ISRO’s launch of vehicles, satellites, and scientific missions.
- The secretary of the Department of Spaces S Somnath and major Directors of various ISRO centers appreciate this initiative.

- People can also access a beta version of this application through the official website of ISRO.
