Merchandise already? Trump’s Space Force logo contest triggers avalanche of ‘better’ designs

Pentagon to create new command for fighting in space but resists Trump's proposed 'space force'

Pentagon to create new command for fighting in space but resists Trump's proposed 'space force'

"We are glad that the Pentagon is finally taking these steps in enhancing our space strength", Republican Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama and Democratic Rep. Jim Cooper of Tennessee, the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces, said in a statement following the report's release.

The US has outlined plans to "prepare for the next battlefield" by creating a new "Space Force" to counter the threat of China and Russian Federation. Alongside these logos are bits and pieces of other designs that likely served as "inspiration" for the logos presented for Space Force. Another includes the phrase "Mars Awaits".

Alongside the US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, it will comprise the sixth arm of the US armed forces. But he stopped short of endorsing a full-fledged Space Force. "But not too hard, because it's stupid", Colbert fired back.

'We already have NASA.

"Maybe, just maybe, we should make sure our people are not dying because they lack health insurance before we start spending billions to militarize outer space", Senator Bernie Sanders tweeted. "Please wait until NASA finds life until you try to kill it".

"And today", the "Late Show" host continued, "Space Force got a boost from Vice President Mike Pence". It identifies several actions that DoD will take as the nation evolves its space capabilities, "and they are built on the lessons of the past", Pence said.

This fourth addition could be what most differentiates the Space Force from the AFSPC.

President Donald Trump repeatedly has called for the creation of a space force as a new military branch that he says is needed to ensure USA dominance in space. He also added that he does not want 'China and Russian Federation and other countries leading us'.

Mr. Pence said the administration already is working with Congress on the issue. Only Congress has the authority to establish a new branch of the military-something that hasn't happened since the U.S. Air Force was founded in 1947.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis previous year said he opposed a new department of the military "at a time when we are focused on reducing overhead and integrating joint warfighting functions".

"We are going to have the Air Force and we are going to have a Space Force", Trump said in June, adding, "Separate but equal", a perhaps unintentional nod to the slogan that defined segregation in America for decades.

Mr Pence cited the threat of China and Russian Federation as a basis for establishing the new military branch, claiming both Beijing and Moscow are "aggressively" developing anti-satellite capabilities. The United States, then, is left with two options: compete in this developing battlespace or be left at a significant disadvantage.

"Longtime viewers of the Trump administration will remember that Space Force is the president's boldest idea that he got from a Buzz Lightyear Happy Meal toy", Colbert joked.

President Donald Trump's administration is pushing to form a U.S.

Another illustrated what Star Trek might be like with Trump as a character and many others decided to make sci-fi and pop culture references.
