The team of scientists was able to accomplish this feat within a span of 3 minutes and its significance lies in the fact that India has been successfully able to demonstrate its capability to interdict and intercept a satellite in outer space based on complete indigenous technology. Mission Shakti has ensured that it secures a place in the space power league by shooting down the satellite which was orbiting at an altitude of 300 km.
