Space Kidz India unfurled the Indian flag about 30 kilometres above the planet on Independence Day yesterday. The flag was sent to an altitude of 1 lakh 6 thousand feet above the planet on a balloon that unfurled it. The event was part of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav slogan and under the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to celebrate the historic anniversary.

AzadiSAT was developed by 750 girl students from across India to mark the 75 years of Independence.
