    Senior Fellow, Gp. Capt. Ajey Lele’s article ‘Russia’s irresponsible ASAT Test’ has been published in Financial Express on November 26, 2021.

    It has been reported that Russia has conducted an anti-satellite test (ASAT) on Nov 15, 2021. The test is known to have generated around 1500 pieces of detectable (trackable) debris in low earth orbit and in addition hundreds of thousands of very small pieces of space debris. The test has come as an unpleasant surprise and has raised much concern about space security, says Gp. Capt. Lele.
