"400 pieces of orbital debris from the test have been identified, including debris that was traveling above the International Space Station which is a awful, bad thing", Reuters quoted NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine as saying Monday.

At the briefing held at the DRDO Bhawan today, Reddy said the interceptor had the capability to intercept satellites in orbit of 1,000 km.

Reddy said according to Indian simulations, there were no possibilities of hitting the International Space Station with A-SAT debris.

Tottenham confident of Man City upset insists Son
Spurs are now on a five-game winless run in the Premier League with their last victory coming against Leicester City in February. But their South Korean winger Son believes they have the quality and mentality to cause an upset.

Apparently, under prodding from the White House, NASA has said it will continue to cooperate with the ISRO, days after the USA space agency's chief criticised India and termed its anti-satellite weapon test a "terrible thing" for creating about 400 pieces of orbital debris.

India has been on the defensive following the March 27 test that Nasa branded a "terrible thing" that had created new dangers for astronauts aboard the ISS.

Since India conducted the test in Low Earth orbit, it avoided a similar scenario, Shanahan added.

One of the most significant lessons of the hearing was something that didn't come up: stripping Musk of his job as Tesla's CEO. Tesla said it ended the quarter with "sufficient cash on hand".

"As we made clear, space debris is a serious issue for the United States". Moreover, the International Space Station was not directly above the collision spot but in an orbit above the North Atlantic Ocean, over French Guyana, when India's ASAT test took place over the Bay of Bengal, Reddy said.

"Mission of this nature after a test is conducted can't be kept secret". "The satellite is tracked by many stations across the world".

"Space has gained importance in the military domain".

Fassi finished the 54-hole tournament at 6-under par, four shots behind defending NCAA champion Jennifer Kupcho of Wake Forest. Kupcho was even through 12 holes before coming on in a big way down the stretch, playing her last six holes in 5 under.

An audio-visual played during the event said that the seeds of the "A-Sat test" were sown in 2014 when Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the DRDO to work on critical technologies and the final go-ahead was given in 2016. However he said that destroying a satellite on goal is not right and some countries are doing this and creating debris and then they we are approached finally for space awareness. "We don't need any more tests at this orbit now", though he did not rule out the option of conducting more tests in the future. Some 150 scientists worked round-the-clock and some 2,000 components were sourced from 50 private industries. "The ASAT missile will give new strength to India's space programme". National Aeronautics and Space Administration administrator Jim Bridenstine had described the test as a "terrible, terrible" thing.
