The risk, and I am talking about small debris impact to the ISS, risk went up 44 per cent over a period of ten days,” he said.

India had said that the test was done in the lower atmosphere to ensure that there was no space debris.

The US government, in a statement the day after the test, said the issue of space debris was an “important concern” for it.

It said it had taken “note of Indian government statements that the test was designed to address space debris issues”. »
