(Great Power War) The United States first began exploring near space substantially in the 1950s, which expanded to manned space flights, moon exploration missions, and, eventually putting a man on the moon.
Since then our country has contributed to the development and staffing of a manned International Space Station, launched (and retired) the space shuttle program, and now are experimenting with the X-37B, the Air Force’s unmanned (we’re told) ‘space plane’ that has flown four clandestine missions to date, carrying secret payloads.
But only recently has the Pentagon moved to created an actual new branch of service entirely dedicated to space: The U.S. Space Force, which was backed and pushed by President Trump.
That said, what, exactly, is this new space force going to do? What is the force’s main objective?
