India's NORAD?

No time for commentary, but I thought this story was rather interesting.

"India says it is to build an aerospace defence command aimed at preventing possible attacks from space."

Also, I found the two final paragraphs of the story interesting, as I had not heard anything about this story:

"Last week India said it successfully tested the technology which ensures the safe return of astronauts from space after an orbiting capsule returned to Earth.

The capsule splashed down in the Bay of Bengal off the east coast after 11 days orbiting the earth, the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) said."
