India space: Has the country become a superpower in the stars?


0

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called his country a space superpower after the successful shooting down of one of its own satellites in a test of its national space defences.

India has been reaching for the stars since the 1970s. Today, the country has become a premier destination for other nations and companies to launch satellites cheaply.

Reality Check takes a look at India’s ambitions in space.
