SPARK is a digital content that showcases the history of ISRO as well as its achievements. ‘SPARK’ is ISRO’s first 3D Virtual Space Tech Park. There is a museum here. There are theatres. There is also an observatory and gardens. Real looking rockets are also displayed in addition to the children’s play park.

The SPARK museum is the main feature of this virtual space tech park. In this, ISRO’s successes, satellites and launch vehicles have been told. The stories of ISRO scientists are also here, due to which the agency has reached this point today. On clicking the website, first a video of about 6 and a half minutes appears, which gives a glimpse of the Space Tech Park. You can also skip it and enter the park. You can enter the museum, theater and lobby by clicking on the menu given in the left top site of the website.

We explored the theatre, where a 16-and-a-half-minute video explains Chandrayaan-1 and the Mars mission. The good thing is that if you don’t want to watch the full video, you can exit the theatre. Many arrows have been given to show people a better view of the space park, with the help of which its best experience can be taken.
