Over five decades ago, India broke into a bastion of space programs held by an elite clutch of countries. At the time, all it had was an idea, some support from NASA, and the extraordinary vision of space scientist Vikram Sarabhai.
Within a span of the last 2 decades, it soared from one high to another high with a shoestring budget and unbridled resolve to innovate in the most Indian Way possible - ‘Jugaad’isation (Frugal Innovation).
On 22 October 2008, Chandrayaan-1 and thereby India broke out of Earth’s atmosphere to create history by detecting chemistry - Water Molecules on the Surface of the Moon! For the first time in our effervescent love for the moon in Mankind’s imagination and exploration, this discovery helped reshape our dry reputation of Earth’s Natural Satellite and provided a bridge closer to our own origination story!
On 22 August 2019, to continue forward these and many other achievements and to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Mankind’s Moon Landing, ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) launched its second iteration Chandrayaan-2 - Moon Orbiter (alongside Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover) from to soft-land in the Lunar South Pole making it the only country to attempt such a feat!
Purpose of this Space-Tech app is:
To disperse Space Technology in the Curious Minds to spark Innovation and creativity.
To Kickstart the Children’s imagination needed for cognitive development.
To give Adults and Next Generation a chance to wonder about the unexplored.
To diversify economic opportunities by pivoting workforces to create more jobs in the Indian Aerospace Sector and beyond.
To propel aspiring Space Engineers and Technologists to do the NEXT BIG LEAP in Human Discoveries!
Due to the advanced Augmented Reality Features, we’ve deployed in this app, only the Modern mobile devices listed here are currently supported by our #ISROMoonMission App:
To make this simple: Any Apple device that supports ARKIT and any android device that supports ARCore! So Google to find if your device is compatible with these technologies.
The Best Compatible Device that will give you the richer experience is iPad Pros from 2018.
Who are we?
We are JIX, an Immersive-Tech Storytelling Startup & Experiential Marketing Studio that uses Mixed Reality (XR), AI & exponential Technologies to create ‘Joyful Immersive Experiences’ that attracts, engages, educates and inspires!
An Experiential Tribe, led by Indian Founders / Technologists, following ISRO’s journey of Chandrayaan-2 just like a billion others triggered us to create this Augmented Reality app (in a record 3 weeks!) so that anyone can recreate this launch or mission anytime from anywhere around the world!
Who funded this?
We funded this ourselves as part of an Ed-Tech Social Enterprise Initiative: Creating Learning Apps that inspire and educate. So this App is completely free for anyone to download! But wait, what if you want to contribute to this:
How could you contribute to this initiative?
