National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has strongly condemned India’s Mission Shakti, This indigenous anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon test which was recently carried out has reportedly left debris from the explosion which has allegedly endangered the International Space Station (ISS).

NASA has claimed that the risk of collision of the debris with the International Space Station (ISS) has grown by more than 44% within the last 10 days.

This is suspected to put an end to India’s collaboration with US for its ambitious Mission Gaganyaan, the Indian human spaceflight programme.

This will eventually push India towards strengthening its ties with Russia for the Gaganyaan mission.

Approximately about 6,500 pieces of space debris have been expelled by Mission Shakti according to a simulation created by Analytical Graphics Inc., an engineering software company that creates models of the space environment around Earth.

The Indian government, on the other hand, insists that their test was carried out in low Earth orbit (LEO) in order to ensure that there is no space debris created. And whatever debris that has been left behind, will finally collapse and fall back onto the surface of Earth within a few weeks.
