New Delhi April 03 (ANI) - India's recent test of anti-satellite (A-SAT) missile has been termed as "a terrible, terrible thing" by NASA chief Jim Bridenstine, as reported by Engadget. According to Bridenstine, as per Engadget report, the anti-satellite missile test could "endanger astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS)."It is estimated that the risk to the ISS has increased by 44 per cent over the last ten days.
