Prime Minister Narendra Modi said India has successfully conducted an anti-satellite missile test that put the country in a league of global “space powers.”

In a national address Wednesday, Modi said India had achieved a “historic feat” by shooting down its own low-orbit satellite with a missile in just three minutes.

Only three other countries — the US, Russia and China — have the capabilities to use an anti-satellite missile.

After this test, India became the fourth country in the world to gain strategic ability to defeat enemy satellites. Over the last 6 months 300 scientists were working on this project.
