The military space program has mostly been led by the Air Force.

Donald Trump has proposed a new brand of armed forces - which he's dubbed the "space force". "We have the army, the navy ..."

The 1967 "Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, Including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies" (real title!), sought to prevent "a new form of colonial competition" in space, which a "Space Force" sounds like it would be.

Trump's own defence secretary and air force secretary argued vociferously against it when members of Congress pushed it a year ago, Sean O'Keefe, who was both NASA administrator and navy secretary under president George W. Bush, told the Associated Press.

And some said a military space force may make it harder to keep Earth's orbit a place of peace.

"Then I said, 'What a great idea!' Maybe we'll have to do that, '" Trump said. "Maybe we'll have to do that.' That could happen".
