India Becomes Military Space Power With Successful Anti-Satellite Missile Test

According to a report by Business Insider, early Wednesday morning, India launched a missile toward space, struck an Earth-orbiting satellite, and destroyed the spacecraft.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi reportedly made a televised address shortly after the launch to announce the anti-satellite, or ASAT test, was a success.

Modi reportedly praised the operation, called &apos;Mission Shakti,&apos; as &apos;an unprecedented achievement&apos; that registers India as &apos;a space power.&apos; During the broadcast, Modi said, &quot;Our scientists shot down a live satellite.

They achieved it in just three minutes.

Until now, only US, Russia, and China could claim the title.

India is the fourth country to achieve this feat.&quot;
