    India tried and failed to look relevant by launching a 1950s era weapon but fucked it up.

    Maybe before they pollute space any further Indians should focus on figuring out their water problems and making sure everyone has access to a toilet.

      Actually the first time anyone tried to take a satellite out was in the mid-80s. Guided missile fired from an F16 flying straight up. Iโ€™ve seen pictures and it was incredible.

    How do anyone prove that? Is it just some journalists who hates India or Indian progress making fake news. If you a very few things about India, you will know which country this journalist belong to. ๐Ÿ˜œ

      Do you know how much waste is in the space? There is no way one can prove that the debris are of same satellite. Do you know what happens to all the waste ISS (International Space Station) generates every year and where is that disposed? Do you know how many US and Russian satellites goes after being decommissioned (mostly about 10-15 years). Do you know how many satellites Amazon is planning to launch in space within next 5 years and what will happen to them once they lose their charge?

      Do just criticize for the sake of your hate towards a country or countrymen. Do some reading yourself and come out of falsehood bubble.
