      Apparently, France also created a “space force.”

        Budget looks minimal

        https://www.defensenews.com/smr/fede...organizations/

        The U.S. Defense Department’s fiscal 2020 budget asks for $306 million to overhaul its space enterprise: standing up the headquarters of the Space Force, establishing U.S. Space Command and creating a Space Development Agency geared toward rapidly acquiring cutting-edge space technology.

        Of those three organizations, it’s the Space Development Agency that is projected to be the most expensive effort, costing $149.8 million in new funding that cannot be transferred from other parts of the budget.
        What are these guys going to be doing. Don't see too much in there

        Targeting others and defending their own satellites? or is that AF responsiblity

          It is most likely setting up a group of pathfinders to plot the future of the organization.

                For those times you just can' rip open the plastic on that Honey bun

                Hopefully when the new President comes in, Space force as a separate branch will go away. And it will become a Joint Command led by USAF like it should be

                    Pence Says U.S. Space Force Members Will Be Called 'Guardians'
                    Published on 18 December 2020



                    The Trump administration celebrated the first birthday of the U.S. Space Force on Friday by announcing that its members will be known as "guardians."

                    Vice President Mike Pence made the announcement at a celebratory event tracing the development of the newest branch of the military over the past year.

                    "It is my honor, on behalf of the president of the United States, to announce that henceforth the men and women of the United States Space Force will be known as guardians," Pence said. "Soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and guardians will be defending our nation for generations to come."

                    President-elect Joe Biden has yet to reveal his plans for the Space Force in the next administration.

                      This is totally getting mercilessly trolled by Mil Twitter....

                      There was no need for a Space Force to begin with....a separate combatant command...okay we can have that discussion but not it's own branch.

                      I expect to see this get rescinded before too long. It is a wasteful redundancy.

                        Guardians is their so called new name. Well at least Trump/Pence didn't call them the Dark Troopers although he might wish they were...

                              It will have to be rescinded fast...... bureaucracies embed like ticks quickly and start sucking blood (in this case money and prestige). The additional layers of General (or is it Flag) officer billets... the associated staffs.... the CSMs.... the cars, flags, office space, seat on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, opportunity for the Military Industrial complex to wine and dine a whole new acquisition class, opportunities for congress to bring money to their districts........ hell, the vast horizons of new diversity and inclusion billets alone will cause some to want this separate branch to happen. All this before a single bit of hardware is purchased!
