Trump’s” space force”: What does it mean?

President Trump announced a Directive to the Pentagon to a “space of power”, the sixth branch of the military. What will do with this new power?

To create a President Trump contract for the Pentagon, a “room of force” was not met with, not to mention what confusion and doubt, wonder and excitement-more than a few Star Wars-themed memes and tweets.

But as the Tumult of Monday’s dies notice, the hard part for leaders in the interior of the Pentagon begins: How to create a new and never-before-seen branch of the armed forces.

“There are a lot of questions that need to be answered,” John Crassidis, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the University of Buffalo, told Fox News. “They need to treat themselves to a kind of from, to, what, will work together as agencies, what will be the NASA the role. There are a lot of things we don’t know yet.”

Top Pentagon spokeswoman Dana W. White said in a brief statement that a policy board begins work on the creation of what the sixth military branch would be.

“We understand the President of the leadership,” she said. “Our policy Board on this issue’s start, the impact on intelligence operations, the Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy. Working with Congress, this is a conscious process, with much input from several interest groups.”

But long before the Pentagon can figure out the business, in fact, what would make the “room of power”, and who would command it to Trump’s proposal has to overcome a few obstacles in the Congress. In spite of his role as commander-in-chief of the armed forces, the President, the Congress needs to adopt legislation on a number of issues.

For example, legislation would be required in order to authorities, the currently in other branches of the armed forces, to the “space force.” The legislation would also be needed to new positions within the “space force”, determine its size and financial resources.

“The establishment of a service industry requires congressional action,” Republican Rep. Michael Turner of Ohio, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical air and land forces, said in a statement. “We still don’t know, what would a Space Force, who will be there in it, or how much it would cost.”

A determination to establish for the Pentagon, which was a “space corps”, floated last year by the house, in the 2018 fiscal year defense authorization plan, but at some point the text will be removed during the negotiations in the Senate and replaced by a provision that the order of the Pentagon for insight into the usefulness of such a force.

Other than the coast guard, all branches have already commands the room, the work with the Air Force, currently as the primary “space force dedicated to” for the military.

“The mandate of the Congress report on the evaluation of a space-force, to answer these questions is said to be due in August,” Turner. “After we this Problem can be a rating of the report that we are signed on as the legislature and the President, properly, what is the best for the national security.”

Also, when the “space force” – idea makes it through Congress – which faces challenges, including an addition of Sens. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., and Tom cotton, R-Ark., to prohibit the defense authorization bill a space corps funded – there are numerous other problems that need to be disassembled before a military branch created defense of the US interests in space.

“The first thing you need to do, sort it out, what they said, the Agency is responsible for which role and how they will cooperate,” Crassidis.

Other than the coast guard, all branches have already commands the room, the work with the Air Force, currently as the primary “space force dedicated to” for the military. And according to numerous reports, the air force is not too keen on the idea of handing over their operations.

“The President told a US general, create a new space-force 6. Branch of the military today, the generals do not tell me you want to,” Nelson, himself a former army captain, and an astronaut, tweeted on Monday.

The President said a U.S. general, to create a new space-force 6. Branch of the military today, the generals do not tell me you want to. Fortunately, the President can’t do it without the Congress, because now is the time to rip the air apart. Too many important missions on the game. https://t.co/uYzqg1W8nE

NASA has not yet weighed in on the trump order, and instead, a General statement Monday came after Trump’s National Space Council speech.

“NASA strongly supports the White house continues to fat direction in the development of a sustainable and focused space policy, strengthening American leadership,” NASA Administrator Jim bride Stine, said in a statement.

There is also the question of how large is the force the service would need, and how a new officer corp would be trained.

A determination to establish for the Pentagon, which was a “space corps”, floated last year by the house, in the 2018 fiscal year defense authorization plan, but at some point the text will be removed during the negotiations in the Senate and replaced by a provision that the order of the Pentagon for insight into the usefulness of such a force.

Experts said Military.com the space, which would need power, somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000 active personnel by a small army of civilian and a service Academy such as the U.S. military Academy at West Point or the Air Force Academy in Colorado would have to be established to the schools of their future leaders.

“The most compelling rationale for an independent service for the room on the personnel side,” said Todd Harrison, Director of the aviation safety and security project at the center for Strategic and International studies. “Care for a place in the cadre of space professionals … that’s where the Air Force has a lot to offer in the way of reform.”

But perhaps the biggest question is: What is the “space force would do” actually?

While some online imagine commentators, something like Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica, the reality would be, at least in the foreseeable future, more down to earth.

Within the Pentagon there is a small, but vocal, minority programs, such as anti-satellite weapons, missile-capability for the detection and space-based solar power, counter-mounting-space-threats from Russia and China, but also others such as Buffalo Crassidis argue that the greatest danger for the future of the exploration of space is the floating debris around the earth the orbit is now pushing.

Whatever the mission, the experts tend to agree that a “space force” to be something that patrol the final frontier at any time during trump the current legislative session.

“This is something that runs takes a long time, three to five years, if things run smoothly, and this is actually said by the Congress,” Crassidis.
