Russia Warns Against Trump's "Disturbing" Plans For US Space

Currently, space-based operations for the military are headed up by the Air Force Space Command.

Trump announced that there will be a sixth branch of U.S. Military: A space force. The more space pollution there is, the more hard it is for any of us to use space.

That being said, military involvement in space-related activities has occurred since the dawn of the space era.

The creation of the "Space forces" will be held under the supervision of Joseph Dunford.

"It doesn't mean we're going to be having basically space cadets going into space, having military personnel in space - rather [it's] an upgrade to our defense structures, our satellites that are now vulnerable", Burns said. Defence Secretary James Mattis who "strongly" urged Congress to reconsider the proposal at the time was quoted as saying; "The creation of an independent Space Corps, with the corresponding institutional growth and budget implications, does not address the specific concerns nor our nation's fiscal problems in a responsive manner".

"Both Russia and China have acknowledged they are developing - or have developed - counter-space capabilities", US Navy Adm. Cecil D. Haney said in 2015. She noted that Russian Federation and China have proposed an global treaty that would ban space-based weapons.

This week, however, President Trump directed the Pentagon to create his new Space Force.

The Trump administration would also embrace the budding commercial space industry, Mr Trump said, by allowing American "rich guys" to use United States real estate to launch their rockets. If we do, then we should likewise agree that callous calls for massive new programs and full military branches being used as a distraction are an affront to that importance.

Viktor Bondarev, head of the Committee on Defense and Security of Russia's upper parliamentary house, told the state-run RIA Novosti news agency he hoped "there's still remnants of common sense in the American political elite" that would compel the U.S.to remain in the pact. This would act as a jumping off point for sending astronauts to Mars. The gateway gives us that great opportunity. "The US is respected again", he said. The reason we go to the moon is we want to land Americans on the surface of Mars.

"It essentially calls for building another orbital space station, a skill my colleagues and I have already demonstrated on the ISS", Virts said.

"It's probably time as a country that we start to talk about this", said Wilson. "Too many important missions at stake". "It depends on political science".
