Trump's Suggestion of

From Star Wars and Star Trek to Spaceballs and Starship Troopers, sci-fi fans called on their favorite characters to help form and lead the "Space Force" - not to mention that there even was a hokey TV movie in 1978 titled Space Force.

The problem is Trump's administration actively opposed the idea of a Space Force previous year.

McCurdy, O'Keefe and others said any space force would probably consist of cadets on the ground operating robotic systems in space.

"That could happen, that could be the big breaking story", Trump said. The Air Force has its own Space Command, which is responsible for overseeing the numerous Global Positioning System, communications, and surveillance satellites the military has in orbit. "We have the army, the navy". The goal was for the United States to stay ahead of rivals like Russian Federation and China, which are advancing in space-related military operations.

The battle for Mars between Elon Musk's space mercenaries and Trump's Space Force is going to be tremendous.
