Space Kidz India is an organization creating “young scientists for the country and spreading awareness among children for a borderless world.” As per a report by India Today, the Space Kidz India recently launched a satellite called – AzadiSAT – into Low Earth Orbit. It was developed by 750 girl students from across India to mark the 75 years of Independence.

The satellite was one of many lost due to orbital issues, as the Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) that launched it into space failed to place it into a circular orbit around the planet. However, the organization managed to create an ecosystem and a process to develop small satellites.
