India has registered its name as a space power, says PM Narendra Modi

India has destroyed a live low-orbiting satellite during a missile test:PM MODI

PM Modi said an anti-satellite missile destroyed a live satellite in 3 minutes

Anti-satellite weapons (ASAT) are space weapons designed to incapacitate or destroy satellites for strategic military purposes

Although, no ASAT system has yet been utilised in warfare...

...several nations have shot down their own (defunct) satellites to demonstrate their ASAT capabilities in a show of force.

Till now, 3 countries of the world- America, Russia, & China had this achievement

India is the 4th country to have achieved this feat

Our motive is to spread peace and not war: Narendra Modi
