NASA pulled out India's anti-satellite test-Mission Gaganyan

NASA pulled out India's anti-satellite test-Mission Gaganyan

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has strongly criticized the mission power, India's anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon testing, that the debris threatens the International Space Station (ISS) with the explosion.

According to NASA, the risk of collision with the International Space Station (ISS) has increased by 44% in the last 10 days.

NASA administrator Jim Bridenstein said in a declaration to his employees, "The track we are tracking now is to track big things - we're talking about 10 centimeters (six inches) or more Are. " 

This could put an end to the Indian human space shuttle program with America on Mission Gaganyan of India. Bristatstein and ISRO president Sivan were talking about creating a working group to work specifically on the project.

The United States Air Force (USAF) monitors the remains of India's ASAT test. USAF Vice Commander Lieutenant General David Thompson told the Senate Armed Services Committee in the United States that "they are tracking approximately 270 different items in the area of debris." Adding that the number will increase only because debris spreads out and their sensors take more information.

As a result of mission power, estimated 6,500 pieces of debris, according to simulation created by Graphics Software Analytical Graphics Inc., is an engineering software company that makes models of space environments around the Earth.

The Government of India, on the other hand, claims that their test was done in lesser orbital classes (LEO) to ensure that no space debris has been constructed. And the debris left behind will eventually rot and will fall back on Earth within a few weeks.

Experts like  Abhijit Kumar, members of the International Institute of Space Law also believe that debris is most likely to spread in the atmosphere.

Although the result of China's ASAT test in 2007, two Russian satellites were destroyed, the debris was left behind, the test was also held at an altitude of 850 km. On the other hand, India's test was at a height of 300 km.

Since it is far below the 400-km range, most experts are claiming that there is no threat to the ISS, because the 2008 debris from the US in 2008 was destroyed within 250 days.
