Pence Will Reveal Trump's'Space Force Plan Today Watch It Live

We're establishing a separate branch of military called Space Force?

He says advances by China and Russian Federation have increased the need for the U.S.to elevate its space efforts. Namely, the Outer Space Treaty, to which the USA has been party since 1967, bans states from testing any weapons in outer space, or establishing military bases on the Moon and other celestial bodies.

The second and more pressing problem is the lack of United States space capability.

Trump marked Pence's announcement with a tweet: "Space Force all the way!". "We must have American dominance in space".

"There will be no Millennium Falcon, no Jedis or Wookiees we are sad to report", the Fox News host said.

"The next generation of Americans to confront the emerging threats in the boundless expanse of space will be wearing the uniform of the United States of America", he said, adding that Congress must now act to establish and fund the department.

Mr Trump's plans for a Space Force require approval by Congress, with a budget for the scheme to be outlined next year. One person who runs a Twitter as God, wrote, "I already have a Space Force".

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has endorsed steps to reorganize the military's space-warfighting forces and create a new command, but he previously opposed launching an expensive new service. This will be an "elite group of joint war fighters specializing in the domain of space", and it will draw its ranks from men and women from across the military, according to Pence.

"There is a threat out there but it's being handled by the U.S. Air Force today".

The creation of the U.S. Space Command.

"This report is a step in a multi-year process that we think will result in a safer, stronger America". In June, Trump called for the new branch to be created, despite resistance from the Air Force, which now oversees military space programs.

The force would be created by 2020, Pence said.

The Pentagon will hire space experts to create the new force which will be headed by a four-star general and be operational by 2020. "We particularly appreciate Deputy Secretary Shanahan's leadership on these issues and look forward to the establishment of a much-needed independent Space Force, as called for by President Trump". The command has about 38,000 personnel and operates 185 military satellite systems, including the Global Positioning System and communications and weather satellites. "But we can do this within the U.S. Air Force".

In a letter to a U.S. congressman, he said he did "not wish to add a separate service that would likely present a narrower and even parochial approach to space operations", adding it would create extra bureaucracy and cost.
