#381 - Trump assina diretiva para criar Space Force sob as asas da Força Aérea

Numa variação da ideia original de criar uma força espacial apartada da USAF, o presidente Trump assinou nesta terça-feira (19/2) a Space Policy Directive 4, determinando a sua implementação, pelo menos inicialmente, sob as asas da Força Aérea. Citando o discurso do presidente Trump durante o evento

Alan Boyle (Geek Wire):
Our adversaries are training forces and developing technology to undermine our security in space, and they’re working very hard at that.
My administration has recognized space as a warfighting domain, and made the creation of the Space Force a national security priority.
We have a lot of new defensive weapons and offensive weapons designed specifically for this, and now we’re going to start taking advantage of. ,,, What we have on the books are things that you wouldn’t even believe.”

EP #118 (19/6):
A decisão de criar a Space Force como mais um braço das Forças Armadas foi comunicada pelo presidente Trump nesta segunda-feira (18/6) durante o encontro do National Space Council (NSC).
“When it comes to defending America, it is not enough to merely to have an American presence in space, we must have American dominance in space...
Very importantly, I am hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the Armed Forces.  
That’s a big statement.”, disse o POTUS à audiência do Conselho.
Tim Fernholz (Quartz): Trump up-ended that policy in rambling opening remarks, instructing Marine General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, to create the Space Force.
The service would be presumably be responsible for the extensive array of surveillance and communication satellites operated by the US Armed Forces, and more controversially for potential anti-satellite weapons and deterrence.
