11-year-old Indian kid Sparsh Bhowmick develops a website for viewers to easily access information on space missions
A Class 5 eleven-year-old kid Sparsh Bhowmick has designed its own website that gives its viewers to easily access information on space missions. He believes that his blog will help the viewers to get all the information on space missions in a minute rather than watching an 8-10 minute video. The blog created by the kid is known as “Letsexplorespace” that can be visited from here.
I love space and want to learn anything and everything about space, and I even want to be an astronaut one day. That is also another reason I made this blog. I also like movies related to Space like Martian and Star Wars. Let’s Explore Space was made because there are a lot of things we humans are doing to explore space. But when I wanted to read about these, I couldn’t find a single source of information that tells me all about a mission.
Let’s Explore Space’ was made because there’s a lot of things we, humans are doing to explore more about Space. But when I wanted to read about these, I couldn’t find a single source of information that tells me all about a mission. To get to know the smallest details I had to watch entire videos that are about 8 – 10 minutes long so I made this blog where you can know what the Space Agencies are up to in just a 1 minute read!
Sparsh created his space website from scratch by getting some initial tips from his friends and family and then exploring resources from the internet. He invested Rs.550 from the prize money he received for winning a recent drawing competition to purchase the domain name. His parents fueled his passion further and introduced him to more advanced topics likes ‘search engine optimization’ and ‘web analytics’.
Sparsh’s love and knowledge about the space are sky-high as his parents say sometimes it was also difficult for us to understand the techniques and facts he spoke with them. He was heartbroken when Chandrayaan-2 mission with the rover Vikram failed to land on the moon. He, however, felt a deep sense of gratitude towards the Chairman of ISRO, K Sivan, for leading an ambitious space mission from India at a fraction of the cost compared to western space agencies.
Sparsh also wrote a heartfelt letter to ISRO’s chairman Sivan expressing his gratitude and pride. He also mentioned that he is confident that ISRO will lead the world to novel space exploration with a commitment to low-cost space exploration.
The kid was motivated by his teachers at Greenwood High, wherein a recent school exhibition, he chose “fire as the fuel-enabling space quest” and crafted a model of ISRO PSLV rocket.
I am proud of Sparsh’s talent. It is important to be engaged in an activity that is both productive and creative especially during the lockdown when there is a lot of time in hand. His effort is worth emulating and I would like to see more students doing this. Greenwood High has always encouraged creative efforts and will continue with that tradition. I wish him the best in all his future endeavours.
