A claim that India's space research agency developed a streaming platform that allows users to tune in to any radio station in the world has been repeatedly shared on Facebook. But the claim is false. The streaming platform -- called "Radio Garden" -- was developed in the Netherlands. India's space research agency "was not involved in the development", a spokesman for the Dutch organisation that commissioned the project told AFP.
