Cooperation with ISRO remains intact: NASA chief

Cooperation with ISRO remains intact: NASA chief”

Bridenstine continued to say that this type of risk to humans in space, and low Earth orbit operations, was just not acceptable.

Commenting on P Chidambaram's statement on Mission Shakti, the DRDO chief G Satheesh Reddy said that the mission of this nature can not be kept a secret after it was tested.

On the A-SAT test, Bridenstine had said, "It's unacceptable.That is a bad, awful thing to create an event that sends debris in an apogee that goes above the International Space Station (ISS)".

The Ministry of External Affairs in a statement stated that the technological test was carried out to verify that India has the capability to safeguard its space assets.

Beto O’Rourke reports raising $9.4 million for his presidential bid
Interestingly enough, Biden failed to raise substantial dollars in the first quarter of the 2008 presidential election cycle. Plus, he did it with more small donors than any other candidate so far, leading the pack among the sought-after demographic.

He said there were chances of some debris going up but since 10 days have passed since the launch, there was no possibility of it posing any threat to the ISS.

Talking about the project, the DRDO chief said that 150 plus scientists took part in the exercise and around 40 were women. "The anti-satellite weapons test by India last week has resulted in about 400 pieces of orbital debris", he said on April 1, adding "that is a awful, bad thing to create an event that sends debris and an apogee that goes above the International Space Station". India has the capacity to hit target up to 1000 km and the test was intentionally held at a lower height. "The best way of defence is to have deterrence".

The long-term goal is to launch a platform carrying multiple satellites in order to clear more than 3,000 derelict satellites orbiting near our planet. "All necessary permissions were taken", Reddy added.

He had earlier outlined, "We have a strong strategic partnership with India, and we will continue to pursue shared interests in space, in scientific and technical cooperation with India, and that includes collaboration on safety and security in space".

Technical outage causing delays for some flights at DTW, other airports
Several major USA airlines across the country had to ground their planes on Monday because of an outage with a software system. But FAA spokesman Greg Martin said the impact should be minimal in terms of the number of planes, according to reports .

Only three other countries - the US, Russia and China - have anti-satellite missile (ASAT) capabilities.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hailed the A-SAT test's success as "an unprecedented achievement" that makes India "a space power". On March 27, India achieved a historic accomplishment by firing down its low orbit satellite.

Asked if the missile has been in the making for some time now, he said, "Some of the basic technologies were being developed".

Changes coming at FAA after crashes, watchdog says
Six 737 MAX 8 and 9 planes were at the Orlando airport at the time the grounding order was given, Fox 35 reports. The FAA only allows airlines to fly Max 737 planes that don't have passengers on board.
