ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) is the space agency of Government of India headquartered in city of Bengaluru. It's main motive is to harness space technology for national development with space science research and planetary exploration. The Indian National Committee for Space Research (INCOSPAR) was established in 1962. Under the visionary of Dr Vikram Sarabhai, INCOSPAR set up Thumba Equatorial Rocket launching station for atmospheric research in Tiruvananthapuram. INCOSPAR grew and became ISRO in 1969.
