New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today while addressing nation said that India has attained anti-satellite capability and has become the fourth such country after the US, China and Russia.
The mission was completed within 3 minutes when a pre-determined target satellite some 300 km away in the sky was destroyed using a complicated space manoeuvre, Modi said in a nationally televised speech.
Calling it “Mission Shakti”, the Prime Minister said it did not violate any international law.
“This is a proud moment for the country. Our scientists have made this happen.”
