ISRO Unfurls Indian Tiranga On Space To Mark 75 Years Of Independence

The enthusiasm in every individual during Independence day in India is something different. We on 15th August completed 75 years of Independence and everywhere all we could see was zeal and respect. Many other countries too wished us by embracing Indian tricolour. The zeal and love was not limited to the nation and other neighbouring countries only, India celebrated Independence Day by unfurling our Indian Tiranga or Tricolour in the space too. 

Indian Flag Unfurled In The Space

As India celebrated 75 years of Independence, the tricolour was not only unfurled across the country but also in space. A tricolour was unfurled “30 km near space” with the help of a unique Nano-Satellite Launch Vehicle, as seen in a video posted by Space Kids India, an aerospace group dedicated to developing young scientists for the country. The ISRO’s Small Satellite Launch Vehicle’s inaugural launch approximately a week ago garnered media attention for Space Kids India. The launch, which was meant to deliver a satellite created by 750 female students associated with Space Kids India, sadly was unsuccessful. To commemorate India turning 75, ISRO released another video last week with greetings from the International Space Station.
