The White House has announced ambitious plans to create the US Space Force as a sixth, separate military warfighting service by 2020.
The proposal taps into the American public’s long fascination with space but with a military focus, and faces daunting hurdles.
What does the future hold.
Will we need permission to launch a satellite.
As technology moves on ,targets and weapon's can be launched from outside the earths atmosphere.
Is it a free for all or will each country own a little bit.
Mr Pence described space as a domain that was once peaceful and uncontested but has now become crowded and adversarial.
Does that mean we will see a few satellite's being knocked out of orbit.
