House Votes For New ‘U.S. Space Corps’ Military Branch

Space Corps

With an eye out for possible wars beyond the earth’s atmosphere, the House Committee on Armed Services voted Wednesday to create a new branch of the military dubbed the U.S. Space Corps.

The “space corps” will be the sixth branch of the U.S. Armed Forces and the first new military branch created since 1947.

It will be integrated into the military as part of a separate military service within the U.S. Air Force.

By Jason Ditz:

The US has an Army, a Navy, an Air Force, a Marine Corps, and a Coast Guard. The House Armed Services Committee this week voted to create a sixth branch of the American military, dubbed the US Space Corps, which would be wholly responsible for fighting wars in space.

The Space Corps would largely be split off from the Air Force, which was the last new branch of the military created, way back in 1947. The proposal is a continuation of the Pentagon’s increasing efforts in recent years to get heavy funding for space combat.

This comes just a couple of weeks after the Air Force created a Deputy Chief of Staff post of Space Operations, and significantly undercuts their efforts to be in charge of US military’s increasing focus on future space wars.

All of this, of course, has been happening in spite of no other country on the planet having invested significant resources in fighting in space, meaning there’s no plausible adversary for the US to fight in this future space war they’re bankrolling.
