Space Force: Trump 2020 asks supporters to vote on logo

The White House says a space force is necessary to guard against threats from other countries that might try to destroy satellites.

Vice President Mike Pence held a press conference today to kick off the creation of the Space Force in the United States Armed Forces.

Pence reiterated President Trump's calls for American dominance in space in the face of threats to satellites and other areas from foreign adversaries such as China and Russian Federation. "The time has come to establish the United States Space Force".

"President Trump wants a SPACE FORCE - a groundbreaking endeavour for the future of America and the final frontier", read the email from the Trump campaign.

Others were a bit more apprehensive about the proposal, and they provided plenty of space-related jokes, including a few Hollywood-inspired quips.

"As their actions make clear, our adversaries have transformed space into a warfighting domain already, and the United States will not shrink from this challenge", he said.

The latest example came from former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey on Friday, who claimed Trump "raffled off" the Space Force.

It would require a new headquarters and major organizational changes.

"China and Russian Federation have been conducting highly sophisticated on-orbit activities that could enable them to maneuver their satellites into close proximity of ours, posing unprecedented new dangers to our space systems", he said.

Critics, even those who agree with the strategic significance of space, argue that creating a Space Force is "an unnecessary and expensive bureaucratic endeavor", as Reuters put it.

The command has about 38,000 personnel and operates 185 military satellite systems, including the Global Positioning System and communications and weather satellites. They said the Pentagon report was the start of a "multi-year process that we think will result in a safer, stronger America". The Air Force, after all, is run by pilots, not astronauts. Absolutely. Do we need to have more robust thinking about space as a military and commercial domain?

Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday delivered a speech at the Pentagon outlining the administration's plan to move forward with the Space Force, which including instructions for the Department of Defense to draft a legislative proposal for Congress. The new force would likely be carved out a chunk of the Air Force, creating two smaller, weaker services, according to military analysts.

"Creating a separate service will just add to dysfunction at the Defense Department", he said.

Opinions on the Space Force in Congress have been divided.
