Today is a historic day for India. In a big achievement for India, India has now entered the Space Super League. India has registered herself as Space Power.
This announcement was made by our honorable Prime Minister while addressing the nation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that India has destroyed a live low-orbiting satellite at a distance of about 300 kilometers (185 miles) and with this achievement India has now become the fourth country after the United States, Russia and China to have such defence capabilities
“India has entered its name as an elite space power. An anti-satellite weapon A-SAT successfully targeted a live satellite on a low earth orbit. India has registered herself as a Space Power today; till now only US, Russia and China have achieved this; now India is the 4th country to achieve this feat. It was a very difficult mission. It is a very proud moment for India and its citizens today. I would like to congratulate the scientists of India who operated the mission successfully,”
Yes, you read it right the operation was not easy to achieve but our scientists completed the mission within 3 minutes. Not only India has only the 4th country to acquire such a specialised & modern capability but this mission is special in itself as an entire effort is indigenous.
And the mission is carried out by our scientists with full precision and caution. “This test won’t breach any international law or treaties, we’re against arms raised in space said, PM Modi
This mission is an important step towards securing India’s safety, economic growth. It will make India stronger, even more secure and will further peace and harmony
Today, we have enough satellites that are contributing in various segments such as agriculture, disaster management, communication, weather, navigation etc. This is another proud moment for India. But all this has become reality only due to our scientists and PM Modi and his Government. Because earlier also this plan was submitted to Congress Government led by PM Manmohan Singh in 2012 but no sanction was given. Congress deprived India to be a world power and secure nation
