Trump envisions space force someday in military

US President has proposed to create a Space Force as a new branch of US armed forces 925 001 Trump envisions space force someday in military

Well, it's finally happened: Donald Trump has floated the idea of a military arm in space. "Very soon, we're going to Mars", Trump said, before stating, "You wouldn't have been going to Mars if my opponent won".

He says his idea of a new space force had started as an off-the-cuff comment, but he decided it was a great idea.

It was unclear whether The Donald was joking about the idea of "Space Force".

The only thing better than its glorious dated theme song is that the 30-minute program co-starred a young, dashing Fred Willard as Capt. Thomas Woods.

But, before the USA begins building the super bomber, the air force will carry out a "critical design review" to see how it can better implement the tech.

Trump will be in Los Angeles later in the evening for a private fundraiser near, but not in, Beverly Hills.

Saying his national security strategy "recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air and sea", Trump said at a San Diego Marine Corps base that he's considering "a space force" that would be the equivalent of the Air Force, Army and Navy. We'll call it the space force.' Not really serious. The bill ultimately left out the ambitious Space Corps plan being pushed by the House Armed Service Committee, but as well as offering more responsibility and authority to the Air Force Space Command, it did require a road map to be developed over the coming year describing a potential pathway towards a "a separate military department" for space defense.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology astronautics professor and former NASA deputy administrator Dava Newman said she prefers space to be as peaceful as possible. "We should learn from our mistakes on Earth and keep space peaceful".
