Mike Pence says Space Force will be established by 2020

Mike Pence says Space Force will be established by 2020

Pence built a case for the necessity of a Space Force, citing military advances in space by adversaries such as Russian Federation and China.

"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.

It is also unclear whether Trump's planned militarization of space would defy global treaties, like the Lunar Treaty, which forbid extraterrestrial weapons testing.

His comments were met by enthusiastic applause from the onlooking crowd.

"What was once peaceful and uncontested is now crowded and adversarial", the vice president continued.

"This report is a step in a multi-year process that we think will result in a safer, stronger America", they said. Trump claims the new branch of the military is necessary to combat new threats to American nationa security.

The idea of a Space Force was first brought before Congress in 2017, said ABC.

Mnangagwa's inauguration will take place 48 hours after the Constitutional Court announces its decision. Party leader Nelson Chamisa tweeted: "Our legal team successfully filed our court papers".

What did Mike Pence say about the Space Force? In addition, Space Force is against worldwide law. "Absolutely", said Kosal, a former advisor for science and technology in the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

The creation of the newest branch of the armed services will require congressional approval.

Critics, however, have hit back at the announcement saying it's expensive and unnecessary.

But what is Space Force, and is it really more than a Donald Trump campaign crowd-pleaser? After the president declared in June his bold plans to create a sixth branch of the military, Bloomberg Businessweek asked eight renowned graphic designers to come up with their own logos for Space Force. The Space Command will be led by a four-star general to oversee warfighting operations. Much of the military's current space power is wielded by the Air Force Space Command, which has its headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The Trump administration aims to have the Space Force up and running by 2020, Pence said.

But with Russian Federation and China developing weapons that threaten USA satellites and investing in hypersonic technology, Pence said the nation could not afford inaction.

Mr. Trump weighed in immediately after the vice president's remarks.

In an interview with Space.com, Michael Dodge, an assistant professor in the Department of Space Studies at the University of North Dakota, likened the creation of a Space Force with the birth of the Air Force in the 20th century.
