President Trump has been teasing the idea of the Space Force for quite a while now, and was quite enthusiastic about it on Twitter.

US Vice President Mike Pence, speaking at the Pentagon today, revealed more details about a proposed new military branch, a "Space Force".

Meanwhile, others have argued that it makes sense to form a separate military branch specifically for space.

Any plan by the White House to create a new military service would need congressional action.

The Pentagon's report, which was provided to Congress shortly before Pence's speech, also seeks to establish a new acquisition agency, the Space Development Agency, "charged with rapidly developing and fielding next-generation capabilities", not unlike the role the Missile Defense Agency plays in missile defense.

Kate Kane is the second Batwoman in DC Comics' history, with the first being Kathy Kane, Bruce's aunt and Kate's mother. She's even served as the primary featured hero for Gotham City in Detective Comics while Batman wasn't in the picture.

Second, the report calls for the establishment of a Space Operations Force - an elite group of joint warfighters, specializing in the domain of space, who will form the backbone of the nation's newest armed service.

Much of the military's current space power is wielded by the Air Force Space Command, which has its headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The report to be released today represents a critical step toward establishing the Space Force, he said. On Thursday, Pence said that the administration will work with Congress on the plan, and will outline a budget next year.

Several lawmakers have already hit back at the move as being costly and unnecessary.

"In his inaugural address to the nation, President Trump declared that the United States stands 'at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, '" Pence said.

The vulnerability is incredibly complex, and involves a loophole in the way WhatsApp's web and mobile versions communicate. The white hat hackers said they'd found it was possible to fake messages and sow the seeds of all sorts of confusion.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said this week that Pence is Trump's "point man" for Space Force, and Pentagon officials are working closely with his office. Another dissed the ridiculous plan, writing, "Gov't: Sorry we can't give you healthcare, we had to stick to absolute necessities like [checks notes] a Space Force".

The Space Force would be responsible for a range of crucial space-based US military capabilities, which include everything from satellites enabling the Global Positioning System (GPS) to sensors that help track missile launches. The change, which would require approval from Congress, would be a dramatic change in the organization of the Defense Department.

The vast United States military divides the globe into various commands, such as Central Command in the Middle East or Indo-Pacific Command in Asia, and so a new Space Command would be on an equal footing with these.

Joan Johnson-Freese, a space security expert at the Naval War College, told Brumfiel that she doesn't think a Space Force is now necessary. Rather, she says, the billions of dollars could be better spent in so many other areas.

The Pentagon's existing military branches are: the Navy, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Army and Air Force.
