Cultocracy note :
India joins the growing list of countries that are developing anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons .
India’s weapon of choice is simply a modified ballistic missile , it does the job .
Why do you think countries are developing these weapons ?
What exactly is floating around in low Earth orbit that may constitute a threat to the security of a nation ?
Satellite TV perhaps ?
From Space.com :
“Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the country’s military successfully demonstrated an anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon in a test known as “Mission Shakti.” In that test, a ground-based missile, a version of an existing ballistic missile interceptor, hit a satellite at an altitude of about 300 kilometers.”
“The test makes India the fourth country, after the United States, Russia and China, to test an ASAT weapon.”
“The test was done to verify that India has the capability to safeguard our space assets,” the ministry said in its statement. “It is the Government of India’s responsibility to defend the country’s interests in outer space.”
Although certain deep state interests who have had a historical monopoly in space are non too happy .
“Later, acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan warned any nations contemplating such antisatellite weapons tests that they risked making a “mess” in space because of the debris fields they can leave behind.”
“My message would be: We all live in space, let’s not make it a mess. Space should be a place where we can conduct business.”
Hmmmmm……..Never realized Defence Secretaries were that interested in ‘business’ .
Depends what business you are talking about I suppose .
