The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is the space research and exploration agency of the government of India (GOI) headquartered at Bengaluru (Karnataka).

It aims to develop and sharpen space research and technology for national development. 
ISRO was formed in 1969 displacing the Indian national committee for space research (INCOSPAR) established in 1962 with the combined efforts of first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru and his close aide scientist Vikram Sarabhai, regarded widely as the Father of the Indian space programme.
