The Trump Administration wants a Space Force, with Vice President Michael Pence warning that Russia and China have already militarized the final frontier.
We need to protect the homeland from attacks from outer space, and a Space Command is long overdue. We could face attacks from aliens unknown.
Also, by the year 2050 Earth could have a population of 18 billion. We need to explore others worlds like Mars for possible colonization. We would need a space force to protect such population.
