U.S Star Fleet
With no viable way of getting to space other than with the help of others ... bloody hilarious.
Fourth, the Department will create a U.S. Space Command, led by a four star general or flag officer, to lead the use of space assets in warfighting and accelerate integration of space capabilities into other warfighting forces. U.S. Space Command will be responsible for directing the employment of the Space Force.
And how much will this new branch of warfare cost ?
How many science missions will be cut to fund it ?
And isn't this just more pie in the sky ?
Once again this administration proves it has no idea what it's doing.
Post like these are classic examples of how NOT to think critically. SpaceX along with other private ventures, to include official Gov have been working on that quite some time. So you statement of, "With no viable way of getting to space other than with the help of others ... bloody hilarious." Is rendered invalid.
As for the second part of the post, had you been following the thread, you'll see that existing branches and services will be consolidated and from there orders will be cut IAW mission perimeters.
Once again, leftist unable to see past their own noses. This administration is proving that it knows what its doing and whats needed to engage an environment it clearly see's at risk.

All three commands will roll into Space Force. And this will actually save some money. Instead of paying for three separate commands to do the same thing, we'll be paying for one service.
None of the services are currently efficient at protecting their satellites. And they won't be constructing their satellites or passing anything on to anyone. It will be going the other way.
