Pence lays out a plan to create the Space Force in 18 months.

And Trump wants to cash in on the logo design. One of the options says "Mars Awaits". That's right - we have finally reached the "A new life awaits you in the off-world colonies" phase of late capitalism.

Coincidence that Russia already has something called Space Force?

Space Force is perfect Robert Smigel/SNL cartoon material.

I still really think this thread should be changed to Space Farce. If Trump and this administration are behind it, I don't see how it can turn into anything else. We're going to end up with a manned defense platform in space followed directly by a Trump Space Hotel and Resort nearby.

Will Space Force include marshmallow lasers from the space unicorns?

There has been a great deal of joking and laughing about the whole Space Force thing -- not only here, but pretty much everywhere. I'm wondering, though, how much of that is because this is coming from Trump's administration, who really can't do anything without eliciting either scoffing or outrage. Or both. Usually it's deserved.

That said, I ask: if someone less controversial and more generally respected (like Obama or Bush senior, or almost any of the other primary candidates from the 2016 cycle) had proposed something like this "Space Force" what would your response be?

This question is not intended to be a defense of "Space Force" -- I cant even type it without laughing a little. I'm just curious and think its interesting and fun to talk about potential details of a space-oriented security and military presence. With space tourism becoming a real thing now or very soon and privatized missions to and perhaps colonization of Mars (which could require the development of staging areas that included on-site populations), it kind of seems like something along the lines of "Space Force" might be necessary, in some fashion or form.
