Arrow US Space Command Will Stand Up To Find Ziggy Stardust And Spiders For Mars

US Space Command Will Stand Up To Find Ziggy Stardust And Spiders For Mars

In one small step for Space Force and one giant leap towards eliminating the bug threat on Klendathu, President Donald Trump has ordered the services to consolidate their space-based components into U.S. Space Command, which will become a new unified combatant command.

“The establishment of Space Command is a critical step in accelerating our space capabilities and posture to defend our vital national interests and deter our adversaries,” said Pentagon spokesman Army Lt. Col. Joseph Buccino. “This combatant command will lead space operations and develop space warfighting doctrine, tactics, and techniques.

“While we establish this new combatant command we continue to develop a legislative proposal to meet President Trump’s vision for a Space Force as a sixth U.S. military service. These organizations will ensure we maintain our national technological and military advantages in space for generations to come.”

The U.S. military is working with Congress to set a time line for making Space Force a fully operational and independent service, Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan tweeted on Tuesday.

“The Space Force will serve as a force provider for personnel, assets, and capabilities supporting space operations while Space Command will serve as the operational command that will employ space capabilities and lead space operations,” Shanahan tweeted.

But Rep. Adam Smith, the likely next chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, has said is against the president’s proposal to create Space Force.

“I am concerned that his proposal would create additional costly military bureaucracy at a time when we have limited resources for defense and critical domestic priorities, and I do not believe it is the best way to advance U.S. national security,” Smith (D-Wash.) told Task & Purpose on Oct. 23.

Whenever Space Command launches its first mission, Task & Purpose will work with Ground Control to ask Major Tom what it feels like to float in a most peculiar way.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
