''China, India challenge US monopoly on satellites''

From Russia & India Report

''The creation of antimissile and anti-satellite systems, caused by nuclear proliferation, is becoming an integral factor in the military-industrial policy of leading Eurasian countries.

Serious talks about Chinese potential in this field started in January 2007. At that time a missile interceptor was launched from Chinese territory that destroyed the Chinese meteorological satellite Feng Yun-1C. The interception of a spacecraft at an altitude of 864 kilometers with a direct hit was weighty confirmation of China’s abilities.''
