America's Space Force ambitions
President Donald Trump signed a directive to start the lengthy process of creating a new branch of the military dedicated to handling threats in space, the U.S. Space Force. Space Policy Directive 4 sets the foundation for a legislative initiative to establish a new force under the aegis of the Air Force, the branch currently responsible for space, comparable to the Marines under the U.S. Navy. The Trump administration has said it plans to usher in the force by 2020. But the legislation will have to be approved by Congress, which could be an uphill battle with the House of Representatives now controlled by Democrats.
