NASA said India’s destruction of a satellite could threaten the International Space Station (ISS), international media reports said.

Terming it as ‘terrible’, NASA chief, Jim Bridenstine, said that the risk of debris colliding with the ISS rose by 44% over 10 days as a result of the test.

He, however, said that the ISS is still safe.

India on March 27 carried out a test — Mission Shakti — which Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed it had established India as a “space power”. (Agencies)
