In other space news … President Donald Trump today instructed the Pentagon to form the US Space Command, which will pull in service personnel from all corners of Uncle Sam’s armed forces. Space Command will be expected to take over space-related national security responsibilities previously held by the US strategic command.

This is a part of the President’s desire to set up a new branch of military-enhanced space force, which will counter All Movements from Russia or China to jam or destroy US satellites or interfere with other US space operations.

Trump can not be able to get the democratically-controlled rehearsal house to print on its space regime and such a space command can be an attempt to create another way to create a stand-alone space-focused branch of the military. The Space Command will be led by a four-star Senate-approved General or Admiral, and more details of how accurate it will play will be revealed within the next few weeks, according to Vice President Mike Pence.
