  • Vice President Pence provides details about formation of proposed 'Space Force'

"Under President Trump's leadership, we will meet it head on - to defend our nation, and build a peaceful future here on Earth and in space".

But when it comes to establishing a new branch of the military, Selva said, "there's an obligation" to present a set of options that can be presented to Congress.

"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.

Some Republican lawmakers expressed support for the project, but many Democrats derided the idea as a money pit that would jeopardize other priorities.

When president John F. Kennedy explained in 1962 why America was sending men to the Moon, he famously said, "There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet".

Bethenny Frankel's On-Again, Off-Again Boyfriend Found Dead in Trump Tower Apartment
Shields and Frankel began dating in 2016, just after Frankel's divorce from second husband Jason Hoppy was finalized. Sonja added that the event especially made her sad because the tragedies seem "to be never-ending for [Bethenny]".

But others in Congress - and apparently some high-ranking military officials - have, like Kelly, questioned and pushed back on the idea of a Space Force.

"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, suggesting that this branch of the military will "carry American ideals into the boundless expanse of space". The military relies on space technology for various operations, including Global Positioning System, satellite imagery and probes that can detect missile launches. These would include a secretary of the Space Force, which will eventually reach the same status as the secretary of the Army or Navy and have a seat on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. But any proposal to create a new military service requires congressional action, and is likely to become a long, drawn-out process.

U.S. defence secretary James Mattis has previously been against establishing a new military branch specifically for space.

These new organizations are part of a broad move to restructure the way the us military manages its space operations and technologies.

President Donald Trump's proposal to create the US Space Force will take years to implement at best, but that's not stopping his re-election campaign from fundraising with branded merchandise. "The first American rockets in space were launched by our military".

Cam Newton Confronts Former Teammate Kelvin Benjamin

On Tuesday, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis called Pence "the point man" on issues pertaining to the United States military and space.

Vice President Pence described the White House's plans for a Space Force, a sixth branch of the USA military that would be responsible for operations in outer space, in a speech on Thursday. Created in 1982, it is headquartered at Peterson air force base in Colorado and oversees 30,000 people. We have the Air Force, we'll have the Space Force. We have the Air Force, we'll have the Space Force.Think of that. At Trump events, "Space Force" has come a common rallying cry, with some Trump supporters wearing Space Force T-shirts in the crowds.

"We've got to be able to compete, deter and win", Mattis said.

The new command and reorganisation "should be budget neutral", Scott Pace, the executive secretary of the National Space Council, said in an interview.
