Re: Indian ASAT Test

Re: Indian ASAT Test

So if satellite was travelling at 7.5 mt.sec and closing speed was 10 mt.sec then ASAT missile was travelling at 2.5 mt.sec. ? May be I am missing something but.. 1 - The speeds are of the order of 10 Km/sec .. not mt.sec.. 2 - The velocities are vectors, so one can not just "add" or &quo...
