USA military dominance in space could reignite arms race, Russian Federation warns

Currently, space-based operations for the military are headed up by the Air Force Space Command.

Russian outside service Maria Zakharova said at a preparation that Russia "noticed the U.S. president's directions... to isolate space powers from the aviation based armed forces", saying "the most disturbing thing about this news is the point of his guidelines, to be specific to guarantee (US) mastery in space". But the proposal has languished in Congress, most recently when the House last month rejected a plan that would have carved out space-related combat functions from the Air Force. Russia, which already has a space force, reacted with concern.

The president framed space as a national security issue, saying he does not want "China and Russian Federation and other countries leading us".

Dunford appeared to acknowledge the order, responding, "we got it".

Space remains one of the few areas where USA and Russian Federation continue global cooperation.

Military satellites aren't being deployed fast enough because of a bureaucracy that cares more about superiority in the air than space, said Rogers, who chairs the House Armed Services Committee's subcommittee on Strategic Forces.

Dr. Jack Burns, a professor of astrophysics and planetary science at the University of Colorado, says to think of it more as an upgrade to our space infrastructure. Congress would have to pass legislation to authorize a new branch of the military fully compatible with the authorizations of existing military structures.

Jim Bridenstine, NASA's new administrator, told the council the civilian space agency is working to implement Space Policy Directive 1, which calls for astronauts to return to the moon as the nation's next major space objective.

"The goal is sustainability", Bridenstine said.

"At a time when we are trying to integrate the Department's joint warfighting functions, I do not wish to add a separate service that would likely present a narrower and even parochial approach to space operations", Mattis wrote. "We do not want this to be "Lucy and the football" again". "Separate but equal, it is going to be something so important". Nelson, who once flew aboard a space shuttle is a Florida Democrat now running for re-election.

"Space doesn't dominate one small geographic area - it dominates continents, oceans", said Francona. Unless these efforts are truly bipartisan, from the beginning, they will be doomed to eventual cancellation.
