China shot down another missile in space

Feb 14, 2018

China used a long-range missile interceptor, tentatively identified as the DN-3, to destroy a target missile in space. This isn’t the first time the nation has managed it; in 2010, China used a midcourse interceptor, likely another DN-3, to destroy a target missile in the exoatmosphere or roughly 62 miles above the earth’s surface. That 2010 test made China the second country in the world, after the United States, to develop hit-to-kill, exoatmospheric missile defense capability.
