„Space Force“

You knew this was coming: „House Defense Panel Would Create Space Force“.

A House Armed Services panel intends to create a new fighting force called Space Corps within the Air Force to improve the U.S. military’s ability to address threats in space, according to a summary of the Strategic Forces panel’s forthcoming fiscal 2018 mark.

That says „within the Air Force“ but the article also says:

The Space Corps, they added, would be “a separate military service responsible for national security space programs for which the Air Force is today responsible.”

Either way, pretty interesting. And you knew it was coming.

    I have couple BRs who are probably too old to join–they probably won’t be looking for 65+ year old men, alas.

      Considering most astronauts are senior officers and scientists, 60+ year old folks are probably just what Space Command is looking for. Bonus points if one is older than the USAF.
