NEW ‘SPACE FORCE’?

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

WASH­ING­TON: Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump said on Tues­day he wants the US military to cre­ate a new “space force”, adding to the Pen­tagon’s cur­rent ground, navy and air forces. Trump told troops at the Mi­ra­mar Ma­rine Corps Air Sta­tion near San Diego that the new group would be able to en­cap­su­late the “tremen­dous amount” of work the military and govern­ment are do­ing in space-re­lated de­fence. “My new na­tional strat­egy for space recog­nises that space is a war-fight­ing do­main, just like the land, air and sea,” Trump said. – AFP
