Trump eyes United States dominance in space with 6th branch of armed forces

"It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space".
"Fortunately, the president cannot do it without the Congress because this is NOT the moment to dismantle the air force: too many missions at stake", said US Senator Bill Nelson, a Democrat, on Twitter.
"We will have the air force and we will have the space army, separate but equal", he added. Where's General Dunford? General?
"We got it", Dunford responded. But the directive seemed to take defense officials by surprise.
For now, questions exist as to whether the president has the authority to create an additional military branch. "Working with Congress, this will be a deliberate process with a great deal of input from multiple stakeholders", she said. He framed the undertaking as a national security issue, saying he does not want "China and Russian Federation and other countries leading us". Defense Secretary James Mattiswrote in a letter, "At a time when we are trying to integrate the Department's joint warfighting functions, I do not wish to add a separate service that would likely present a narrower and even parochial approach to space operations". "It requires congressional authorization". It's not clear if the president's comments Monday were meant to override or influence that study.
Currently, the majority of the military's space-related projects fall under the Air Force. It includes more than 36,000 personnel around the world that provide space and cyber capabilities for the Defense Department.
Nearly no details have been released on the space force, including whether or not new bases (extraterrestrial or otherwise) will be open in support of it, how it will be organized, how now service troops will be shifted into its ranks or how recruitment will be conducted. "They can beat us", he said.

The Pentagon and NASA track more than 500,000 prices of space junk circling the earth, including about 1,730 operating satellites.
The head of NASA said the agency strongly supports Trump's position "forging a sustainable and focused space policy that strengthens American leadership".
However, because the treaty does not specify conventional weapons, countries such as the U.S., China and Russian Federation are looking into ways to expand defenses to space - such as anti-satellite missiles, etc.
The US, however, is a member of the Outer Space Treaty, which bars the stationing of weapons of mass destruction in space and only allows for the use of the moon and other celestial bodies for peaceful purposes. 'The essence of the American character is to explore new horizons and to tame new frontiers'.
In a testimony in front of the House Armed Services Committee, former deputy assistant secretary of defense for space policy Doug Loverro also spoke out, saying a new branch isn't necessary for a "space-smart civilian and military force" the country needs. He said the Space Force will "lead the management of traffic and mitigate the effects of debris in space..."
