Race for star wars in new package…again
US President Donald Trump announced a sweeping new space policy on Monday that will focus both on reducing satellite clutter in space as well as creating a specific “Space Force” as the newest branch of the military.
“It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space,” said Trump, saying that he wished to revive the US’ flagging space program that has been bogged down by rising costs and a lack of political will.
Trump said he does not want “China and Russia and other countries leading us.”
This announcement has taken the entire world by surprise. Though it’s always become a routine feature of unusual steps by American president, but has it again taken the world back to “Star war” era? Be it announcement of erecting wall along Mexico borders or change in immigrants and visa rules.
Where does their program stand?
Is this program new? Has it been suddenly announced? NO, but there’s is more to it which is to be seen in days to come
