Debate on future of “Space Force”

Capitol Review

This week, U.S. senators were given an update on the so-called “Space Force.”

Anna Wiernicki reports the Pentagon says it’s moving as quickly as it can. Defense Secretary Shanahan says while the U.S. is the superior force above the Earth’s atmosphere right now, that superiority is under threat from our adversaries.
