India has successfully tested its Anti-Satellite (ASAT) Missile by destroying an LEO satellite under a highly complex anti satellite missile test titled Mission Shakti. With this, our country has became the 4th nation in the world to demonstrate anti-satellite missile capability by shooting down a satellite.  Other 3 super powers are United States, China and Russia.  The team Mission Shakti completed this feat in just three minutes, making India's way in the space power league. In a special address to the nation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi described it as a rare achievement that puts the country in an exclusive club of space super powers. Let's see some important details about Mission Shakti.

What is Mission Shakti (ASAT)?

  • Mission Shakti was a "highly complex" anti-satellite missile test conducted today (27th March 2019), at a high speed by India's scientists.
  • Under the mission, India successfully launched a missile at a satellite in low-earth orbit. 
  • The test was safely conducted in Earth's lower atmosphere so that no space debris is created.
  • The anti-satellite (ASAT) missile which was made by the Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) destroyed the LEO satellite in a span of three minutes. 
  • Note : Anti Satellite weapons also called the ASAT are developed to destroy satellites.
  • Mission Shakti will make the country stand strong and secure. 
  • It will further protect the nation from disharmony and bring peace.
Mission Shakti is not directed against any country, the government has said. The capability achieved through the test provides credible deterrence against threats to India's growing space-based assets from long range missiles, the government added. It further clarified that the test did not violate any international law.
