President Trump raised eyebrows earlier this year when he announced plans to create a Space Force, which would become the sixth branch of the military.
Vice President Mike Pence later announced in a speech that the branch was needed in order for the US to maintain military dominance in space. The proposed Space Force is estimated to cost $13 billion in its first five years.

Trump should put Tyson in charge. /s
Tyson might work well as someone to look for ways to make Muslims feel better about themselves.
I think he missed the administration for which he was suited.
I’m Doing My Part !
He goes on about manned exploration--and nothing at all about the actual threats to our space-enabled warfighting and commerce.
This guy never impresses me as all that smart. Most of what he says is just dumb.
ANYBODY’S “Space Force” would be a “fatal mistake if done wrong.”
Tyson is a jerk.
Oh. Well. Then. Since this pseudo-science, pseudo-intellectual propagandist, who hates this President, is bad-mouthing a program this President has put forth, I guess we might as well just give up.
Actually, neill should go smoke some more of de Grasse.
What a slobbering toad.
According to Wikipedia he never spent a day in uniform.
Tyson should stay put of politics - and theology.
He is a real libtard AND an Atheist.
I am afraid I am a bit confused. How would you do the Space Force ‘wrong?’ And how would this be a ‘fatal mistake?’ Compared to not setting up a Space Force at all.
I don’t know. I think I saw him in a uniform outside a movie theater years ago tak ok taking tickets.
Didn’t Neil rape a teenage girl?
The Space Force has essentially been around since the 90’s. Now just making it formal.
Affirmative Action Force
Yes. but he's a liberal Democrat, so she doesn't get "believed."
Come to think of it, a lot of things could be a fatal mistake if done wrong. Hold my beer . . . .
