India Destroys Satellite – level 1

02-04-2019 07:00

There are satellites around the earth. The USA, Russia and China can destroy a satellite. They have missiles which fly very high. These missiles can hit and destroy a satellite. India can do this, also. The country tests this. It destroys a satellite.

India’s Prime Minister tells the people this news. His political opposition criticises him. People think that he uses this to become more popular.

Other people criticise this, too. They do not want wars in space.

Difficult words: satellite (a machine which goes in circles around the planet and sends information to people), missile (a rocket), political opposition (people in politics who are not with someone).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
