How Feasible Is It To Create A U.S. 'Space Force?'

President Trump recently mentioned that he wanted the U.S. to have its own “space force.”

That particular phrasing caught a lot of people by surprise and made it seem extremely far-fetched. But members of the House have actually brought it up themselves. A provision in the House version of this year’s National Defense Authorization Act called on the Air Force to spin off a separate department focused on space.

To find out just how realistic the “space force” may be for the U.S., The Show's Steve Goldstein is joined by Sandra Erwin, staff writer for Space News.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
