ISRO is launching a satellite named Azadisat on Sunday as part of the Amrit Mahotsav that the Modi government is celebrating across the country after the completion of 75 years of India’s independence.

The special thing about this satellite is that 750 students from government schools from all over the country have collaborated to make it.

This satellite has been manufactured by a company called “Space Kids India” and will be launched from ISRO’s Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV).

This will also be SSLV’s first flight.
