I like your unbiased opinion. It may please be noted that the retired head of our DRDO ( Defence Research and Developement Organisation ) has gone on record that the capacity to launch an anti-satellite missile was there since 2012 but further progress was not possible because of the hesitations of the then govt.in power. On coming to power the present govt. immediately approved the proposal to go ahead and this is the result today.Very good news! As we know, in America NASA has had its boom periods, as well as periods of stagnation due to underfinancing. Rising powers, like India, may make great bounds in space exploration - as indeed Russia did at first. The great nations rushing to explore the stars will advance us all as a species, perhaps even in future generations allow us to live on other worlds?
