With the vision of harnessing space technology for national development, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) was established on 15 august 1969. Vikram Sarabhai, who dreamt of space technology work for the nation’s development, is known as the father of ISRO. Its headquarters is in Bangalore.
India took its first step into space exploration with the establishment of the Indian National Committee for Space Research (INCOSPAR) by the government of India under the department of atomic energy in 1962. Later Vikram Ambalal Sarabhai demanded to set up a separate research organization, and INCOSPAR became ISRO in 1969. It is working under the Department of Space(DOS).
Since then, ISRO has been continuously working on space research and technology for future-readiness, making it the sixth-largest space agency in the world. The main objective of ISRO is to lift launches, and human spaceflight projects, develop reasonable launch vehicles, make semi-cryogenics engines, single-stage to orbit(SSTO), and two-stage to orbit(TSTO), etc.
