WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump’s top spymaster nominee has said he was “shocked” to know that India successfully launched over 100 satellites in one go, asserting that America cannot afford to be seen lagging behind.

“I was shocked the other day to read that India, on one rocket launch, deposited more than 100 satellites in space,” former Senator Dan Coats told lawmakers yesterday during his confirmation hearing for the position of Director of National Intelligence.
