New Delhi । Bharat has attained anti-satellite capability, becoming 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.
#MissionShakti is special for 2 reasons:
(1) India is only the 4th country to acquire such a specialised & modern capability.
(2) Entire effort is indigenous.
India stands tall as a space power!
It will make India stronger, even more secure and will further peace and harmony.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced it today 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.”
